  Awesome! What I needed! Ok my hat is not high but wide and I am cheap. So I will try to squeeze in hat box making in my schedules. ;)

hatbox making   Thank you Lynn. This was amazing as are all of your articles. Should I ever find time to try hatbox making, I would like to do one for men's top hats as I can never seem to find any box the right size around and tall enough. Hexagon should work for top hats.

Hope I can find the right board locally.

  Hello, I am very interesting with your hatbox. Do you know the French equivalence (the name?) of the cardboard you you use.
Many thanks.

Acid free cardboard   I'm sorry I do not but if you go to a shop that does custom framing of artwork or old prints ask what backing cardboard they use for their best prints, that would be what I use. Not the board they use on the front to frame the artwork that usually has a colored and textured surface but the plain white or black board that goes behind the print. Lynn
