  1. Well I was impressed before, but telling me it is cut & sewn by hand. I applaud your craftsmanship And I bow to your master artistry skills. Joel
  2. Roping Saddle

    I'd like to complement you on you weave patterns. Their angles are near perfect. Your imperfections on saddle structure will improve in time. If you stay with it. hey goldshot. I've got a Rods draw down horse if you know anyone local needing one. $450.00 firm on the price. It's in real good condition. Im selling my shop bit by bit.
  3. Starting braid

    I'm a little late for this question, but I do it this way. I'm guessing you are using a round stick. 1. Find the half way position on your stick. 2. Find half of you lace length and tie to your stick at its half way. 3. Pick a side and start braiding. 4 when at the end temporary Tie it off. 5 go to where you have your lace at the half stick. Un tie it. 6. Braid till you get to the end. 7. Decide how you will finish the ends.
  4. Very nice work! Are you using a laser to cut the leather so precisely? Joel
  5. Panama straw

    I haven't been around in quite awhile. So today I log back in to see what folks are up to. The first thing I see is your holster post. I just have to say WOW! That's very nice work, and great thinking outside the box! Joel
  6. Your work is beautiful! I have admired each piece you have shared. Perhaps the next time you start a project you will share with us your method of sewing the parts together. It looks very simple, and primitive from a distance, but I'm willing to bet it isn't. I would love to see how you do it. thanks Joel
  7. Ok I think I understand your method. The flap covers the two pockets when closed, but gives easy access when the wallet is open. I didn't see the larger pocket from the other angle. Thank you for taking the time to explain your design to me. thanks Joel
  8. Yes,, please, I would like to see how it works. It is nice to see something I don't understand at my age. I like the clean simple look your wallets have. Have you used this design for awhile? thanks Joel
  9. That's a nice relaxed looking bag. As a camera bag it's as it should be. All saddle stitched you say. I say hats off to you. Joel
  10. Very nice! Very clean! I am wondering, what is the purpose of the curved lifted piece in the center? I noticed that both wallets have it. thanks Joel
  11. Friends help in making Romal reins how to weave?

    That is a set I braided and I would love to offer help, but I don't understand what is being said. anyway, I used a rectangle core made from harness leather. Not round on this set. The braid pattern I made up myself. I just adjusted the colors to get the pattern I wanted. It's kangaroo hide pre-dyed. I used this book --->> http://www.hought.com/brbooks-romal2.html
  12. Very nice. I really like the contrast of the colors. May I ask where you got your leathers from? thanks Joel
  13. Thank you. The rig was wanted un-dyed in the areas I didn't dye it. I offered to line it also but that isn't what was wanted. thanks for your thoughts. Joel
  14. I thought about doing it that way, but the belt was wanted unlined. It seems to me if the belt is unlined that the loops might have a tendency to snag and pull a loop out. But honestly I do not know. thanks Joel
