Creation of a Custom Hat (Part 2): Blocking the Hat

4) Your hat is stretched over the appropriate wooden block and tied down with a special cord and knot. It is then ready for the blocking process.

5) The Crown Iron irons the hat body from wet to dry putting the "block" or "body" in the hat.

6) The Plate Machine does the same thing to the brim.

I recently ordered and received the Kenny Chesney Palm leaf hat. First of all, I am very impressed by its quality, shape and size! I was very concerned with it fitting and it fits perfectly. Thank you! I'm not a big review guy but I wanted to share my experience with you. Thanks again for the awesome service! ~~ Jamie Martin

The hat arrived yesterday and my husband is so happy to have it back. You did an excellent job with the restoration. Thank you so much. ~~ Becki

I just received my old hat which you made almost like new. The lining is perfect and you didn’t spoil the hats character. I’ve had this hat for 30 years and you have made it so beautiful; I’ll have it for a good time more! Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you all! Keep looking up. ~~ Ron
