    Which is why I leave it to the Engineers, the Draftsmen, and Structural Detailers to figure out the math and science behind creating the blocks, and my job is figuring out which of those blocks works best for what I want to accomplish. For me, I've had good luck with the straight sided dome for the majority of my projects.

    I’m not sure what you’re talking about; you spurred something good discussion but you didn’t cause “an issue.” It was a good question.

    I like the hat too. Looking forward to seeing how it ends up...I too prefer minimal taper, but I also enjoy diversity!

    Nice one, Cuz. A classic shape. That brim curl is subtle and sublime. Nice kicks, too. Not sure I recall the 2 piece construction. Details? I'm digging the narrow square toe on 'em.

  8. My idea of casual Friday. Great look all around Greg.

  9. Looks great BB! Especially in black.

    This is what I have in mind for my latest No.1Q & the block is perfect for it. My only concern is with me doing the pencil roll.

    We don't need to all produce the same hat.
    This place would be boring if everyone did.

    Out burning a bit of brush. It's best done at night in the city.
    I'm wearing my 3X Stetson Forrest Service silver belly, my earliest (to me) extant fur felt.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Switched to this 3.75 x 6.5 Coker.

    You should see it in the light![​IMG]

    Thanks, Perry.

    Thanks, Cuz. I don't break these boots out very often. Picked them up a couple of years ago. D. W. Frommer out of Redmond Oregon made them. French calf. Pics and details are in the CBB thread somewhere.

    Thanks, HJ. I think your N0. 1 is a perfect candidate for that. I've put a pencil roll on about five different hats now so I know you can do it. When you get ready to do it, let me know and I'll walk you through the steps of how I did mine.

    At the risk of stirring up more controversy. I have this Oak colored Stetson Roadster that I'm not sure if I like the leather hatband.

    I'm considering removing it and installing a 1 inch wide fabric hatband in a dark brown, maroon or maybe a color that matches the ribbon binding on the brim.

    I tend to wear it fedora style with the back brim up and the front brim down.

    Am I crazy for considering this??[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I wouldn’t mind hearing your method as well.

    I’m not sure that information is allowed N of the border.

    Got some freebies today. A Beaver brand, a Resistol Quicksilver, and a Stetson. I like the Beaver brand because the first fur felt I ever bought, was a Beaver brand in 1972, from Schaffs. Time to start up the steamer.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
