Default Cowboy Hat Rack

My daughters asked me to help them make a thank you gift for their 4H Horsemanship leaders. We came up with this cowboy hat rack. My daughters burned on their brand and added a few roses (they look like tulips to me, but I kept quiet) since their last name is Rose.

I made the cross laps using my router and a jig from Woodworking with the Router by Bill Hylton (great book for beginners like me). Found a great hanging plate from Lee Valley. Holds it nice and solid to the wall and easy to mount.

Nice to see a hat rack that holds the hats properly, brim up ;-)

I had a metal one for my car, years ago. Don't know where it came from or where it went ;-)

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it

I've also never seen a cowboy hat rack, but it looks great to me.

Very nice, Jamie. I would have never thought of that approach.

It seems I never finish what I

That is a great project. And thanks for the info about the Hylton book regarding lap joints. I hadn't read that and have a project that requires many of them.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You're long past that stage, Jamie! Nice job!!
Those hat holders are very impressive. Bit of sanding was there?
