Last project needed for Christmas finished!!! This is a Mad Hatter style mini top hat. Turned from a freshly cut piece of ambrosia maple the hat is 4 inches tall and has a brim that is almost 8 inches across. Thickness is 3/32 throughout the entire hat. Mad Hatter style hats don’t require any bending of the brim. Hat weighs in at 1.4 ounces! Sanded through 320 grit and finished with Danish oil. Santa will be glad that I got this finished so he can deliver it to the new owner.

I had made something like yours once by accident. After seeing yours, I need to make one by intent.
