  1. Tooled Bird Lanyard

    Thanks for the compliments, if need be, I could throw it around the neck of a moose and lead him out.
  2. Very nice!!! Great detail on these!!
  3. Tooled Bird Lanyard

    I used sno-seal, heated the piece in the oven, liberal amounts of sno-seal, repeated this process 4-5 times, I hope it is waterproof but I am not sure. The strands are made of para cord, all the loops are sewn and wrapped with waxed linen thread and then the ends were covered with heat shrink tubing. The whole process is trial and error. Thank you again for the inspiration.

    This will probably end up as a gift for my father-in-law, as of yet it doesn't have a home so maybe I will just keep it.
  5. Tooled Bird Lanyard

    You are probably right, but I have been wanting to try tooling a moose, and one of these lanyards, killed two birds with one stone and now I have somewhere to put them. Thanks for the kind words.

    This is my first attempt at one of these, serious thanks to LeatherLauren for the great idea!!! Critiques/Comments always welcome, thanks for looking.
  7. I Have No Way To Work. Tooling Is Too Loud.

    Have you considered one of the swivel knife bevelers? They are available at Springfield Leather for less than four dollars, it wouldn't totally eliminate the tapping but would offer your family some relief, lol. Some of the members here have had success mastering this tool and might be able to offer tips.

    I personally have enjoyed the numerous posts, it was good to see the variety of projects you have completed, in my opinion, it is a forum to show off your work and you have done so. Everyone has the choice to look or not. I personally have viewed most of them, carry on posting and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the kind words, I used Craftool stops 904 & 903 and a snap setter for the dots. Necessity is the mother of all creation, lol.
