>This is going south in ten days (if it doesn't break first LoL)The log was found last spring and to my surprise it didn't crack. Joe from a Cleveland suburb dropped by to see the outside turned but had to leave before it was thinned. Wood this old doesn't bend well so the shape will be simple. Off the lathe wet it weighed 7.1 oz's, dry it will weigh just over 5 and with the finish about 6 oz's. It's not perfect but the best I could do.

The outside of the hat has a nice glow when a light shines through.
