I would also recommend one of our own fellow Loungers, Rockwater, to make blocks for you. Here's one he made for me from Mahogany, and I think he's currently making a block for another Lounger... It's such a nice looking block that I think I'd rather spend more time staring at it than using it. For some nice basic hat tools, check out Rick, (another fellow Lounger), at the Phoenix Hat Company. He made up a real nice Rounding Jack for me that I absolutely love using...and it does a spot on job.
