  2. First Aid Kit

    Hello, If you google "leather first aid kit" there's easily a hundred examples of other peoples work. It should give you a good starting referance at least. Good luck!
  3. Custom collars needed

    I actually just opened up shop for making custome collars and other things. Anything Goes. We have a Facebook and etsy shop. What are you thinking as far as design?
  4. Leather couch restoration

    Does anyone know any tricks to restore scratched leather on vintage couches? Other than the scratches the couch is in great condition.
  5. How To Search

    Hey guys and dolls. I haven't been on for a long time. How do I search for spacific posts. I'm looking for the hand of God rig tut I saw a few years back and am not sure how to look for it. Thanks in advance for any help. If I can ever be of any use let me know.
  6. Gold Leaf Shields

    I haven't done it myself yet but plan to, I traded a whip a while back for a book of gold leaf. If you look up 'GILDING' on YouTube there are a tone of videos on how other people do it. Good luck.
  7. Leather Clad Pipe

    If I were going to try it I think I would go for 1 - 2oz leather and probably super fine thread with at least 6 or 7 stiches per inch. Pics would be great when you get done too. Oh, and you'll probably want to lightly case the leather while its being stiched so it'll streach around the pipe and not let the thread tear through the leather.
  8. Dragon Scales

    I used craft tool #f941 for this and just followed the body direction.
  9. How Do I.... Flatten Leather To Make It Workable?

    I like to case the entire thing and lay it on a flat surface until it dries. You'll have to put some books in plastic wrap along the edges to keep them from curling too. Tacking it down sounds like it would be a lot faster though. : )
  10. Accordion Wallets

    I do all my stiching by hand (so far) it wouldn't be THAT hard, but it would take way longer. But I figure slower isn't always a bad thing.
  11. Belt Lining Question

    I made a duty belt a while back that I still use, just took two 5oz veg tan and glued and sewed them together. Its held up relly well for a few years now.
  12. Gum Tragacanth - Eco Vs Fiebings/other

    Same thing with plain sadlesoap, I tried gum trag for a long time and hated it.
  13. Smart Phone Bracer

    It lloks like 2 oz pig skin with a suade lining. All you need to cut it is some sharp sisors. It looks like the suade and skin are just glued together but not sewn so you'll need some good bonding cement. All the hardware is rivited on so you'll need a rivet seter and of course the rivets. And it looks to me like the design is just drawn on with a ballpoint pen.
  14. How To Prevent Deformation When Stamping?

    Hey, you made it just in time for coffee. A good quality masking tape on the back of your leather befor casing will keep it from deforming. Also you could rubber cement it onto a thin piece of cardboard.
  15. Edge Burnishing Kip

    When I'm burnishing really thin leather like that I lay it flat on the marbel and just push in and down with my fingertips as flush as possable. It seams to work well for me. Good luck.
