Hand turned, western, cowboy hat by artist Brian Butler. This particular hat is turned out of Ambrosia Maple with a beautiful, lightly stained, detailed band. Also included is a white rope hat band strung with walnut casings and a gold horse medallion. Each hat starts as a 60 to 70 pound hunk of wet wood such as ambrosia maple, chestnut, white oak, birch or beech. Using his lathe he begins turning, reducing the wood to a bowl-shape about 1/8 inch thick. Once the hat is shaped and dried over a period of several days it weighs less than a pound. The brim of this hat is approximately 17 1/4" x 14 1/4" with a crown depth of 6 3/4". Size 25-1/4. Stand not included.
