The crown block is finished. I have adjusted the shape a little bit more and have called it a day!
Remember I made a detachable base for the block? I was trying all along to “save” the verticality of that base and I think that might have contributed to the hat not sitting comfortably on the head. My last (EVER) modification to the block has been giving some angle to that part so that it sits nicer. In these pictures you can see the work halfway. The right side has been given an angle, while the left side is as it was, before sanding:
Notice that I have traced the edge of the headsize with a pen, that way I will immediately notice if I start sanding that by mistake.
I’ve already reblocked the crown and it’s drying, so my next posting (soon!) will be about trimming the hat.
