JR in south Louisiana
>I have been turning for about 3 years now and I am always looking for a challenge to test my skill level. One item I have always wished to try was a full size cowboy hat. It, to me, is one of the most "eye catching" peices you can turn. My question, can any wood be used? I would think a softer wood like Cypress would not work.
I am limited by the wood in my area. We have alot ofcypress, oak, pine, and I have access to mesquite. Which would be the best to use....thanks
