Wood Cowboy Hats

  Meet the maker! Brian Butler

Brian enjoys producing most of the usual woodworking products such as: bowls, vases, urns, walking sticks but it is his wood cowboy hats that set him apart from other woodworkers.

Brian starts with a 60 to 70 pound hunk of wet wood. He likes to use Ambrosia maple, walnut, chestnut, birch and beech. He proceeds to turn the hunk of wood into a bowl shape. After many hours of turning, he stops when it is only 1/8 inch thick. Over the next four to five days he will shape the hat as the wood drys. Once complete the hat will weigh less than a pound!
