One learns by doing a thing; for though you think you know it, you have no certainty until you try.
I love hats.
After seeing a posting on the Lost Art Press blog (click here) about making your own carpenter shop hat, I had to try it.
I used the instructions that you can find at Tools for Woodworking (click here) and ended up with a really nice hat.
It goes well with my English heritage, my progenitor, Gabriel Burnham, sailed from England to Maryland in the early 1700's, but when I was working full time as a house carpenter I always wore a baseball cap.
Here's a challenge for all you woodworkers - make such a hat and post a photo of you wearing it on your blog.
Don't be afraid, I did it!
