1  woodwork question: making a hat block in Discussion and Questions by PrinceYuuri on: November 07, 2010 12:47:46 PM
I love millinery and want to make my own hat block (aka hunk of shaped wood) instead of dropping at least $50 on a hunk of shaped wood. What I'm looking to make, at least at first, is just a simple round hat block. Nothing complicated about it.


I'm looking to use a softwood, so I can manipulate it by hand, since not only do I not have access to power tools, but said tools also scare me to death. Cry

I was thinking basswood. If people are making blocks from foam, basswood should be ok, right? Also, how would I finish it off? Do I use some sort of finish or varnish? I'll be using plastic wrap around it, but it's still going to be exposed to a lot of moisture.
