Hi there, hahaha what a freaking crazy idea, and a great one ^^ hardwood, maple, or cherry :) I’d avoid oak as it’s kinda splintery (mine at least has always been). Welcome aboard!

@ vonhagen , yeah Penny and I get teased about this a little bit .

@ GMman , hard maple ? Is it very expensive ? Sounds durable .

@ patron , Penny likes your idea , she also thinks your’re cute .

I love their website for those hat-beard-things!! I’ve gone on there several times and every time they are sold out! My neighbor makes stocking hats….I wonder if she can make me this???

Hello friend,! Welcome to the site ! I really like your beard caps…. terrific ! When you are into production, remember to drop me a line ! I would like a hat like that. Could I suggest you consider one with head as well as facial hair for us ah “follicularly” challenged fellers ? (Just sayin) maybe a little sticking out the back or over the ears ? No kidding, they look terrific !
Now don’t let the comments of a few of our more ah…politically backward members curb your interest in our site ! LJ’ is open to all , so we have a few trogs of our own and that keeps us awake and aware.
Now for your wood question; Back in the day, dogwood was nearly wiped out for parts for knitting machines and looms. It has been used for hand needles as well. It is hard and has a tight interlocking grain and if you can find it, it should rank at the top for knitting needle material. Good luck ! Some reasonable substitutes might be beech, sycamore, and the “hard” maple varieties !
