How many hours did you have into it? What did it bring on the auction? do you want to make another?

I can turn a hat in about 4 hours. I then spend about 8 with bending, sanding and prep. Cutting and finishing takes about 3-4 evenings. It brought over $600 at the auction and I do want to make another with a logo relieved in it.

BTW, it is waterproof. I fear direct sunlight may cause crazing or cracking so I wear my hats, but only for dress.
