  1. Very nice. My wife has recently asked if I could make her one. Your feedback about 'next time' is helpful. The Tri-weave that you used does take a lot of practice to get it right. Have you tried the Craftool Pro Series Tri-weave? It is much easier to use and keep aligned.
  2. I use non-chrome pigskin for holster lining. Avoid any chrome tanned leather.
  3. I go to the store at Peachtree Corners area, Northeast of the city. It is about an hour drive for me.
  4. Yes, I use the Tandy Euro Bend for some of my projects. I go to the Atlanta store and always select my own. I have no problems with carving and stamping it, and the finishes take quite well. I will continue to use them in my work.
  5. Thanks for sharing the link! I am already trying some of the techniques and getting great results!
  6. It was the only piece (of many) that had this kind of backing. It is a quite nice piece that will have very little waste. The backing feels consistantly smooth and does not seem to detach or scrape off with a finger nail. I appreciate any feedback! I'll be doing some testing whatever waste I have. Thanks All!!
  7. Thanks for the replies! I'll work on getting a pic up soon. The shoulder has a very smooth backing, no fuzz at all on the entire backside. It is almost like it has been coated with something that has bonded to the leather, providing a nice smooth finish on the backside.
  8. I just purchased a decent piece of veg tanned leather from my local Tandy store. It seems to have a backing that I have never seen before. Have any of you had any pieces with a backing that kind of feels like heavy paper? What is it? How should I work with it? Will it finish well? Thanks!!! Chris
  9. Thanks, John. I did some practice with the tool some before I put it to the strap. It took just a few minutes to get used to the alignment, but the practice did help. It is a bit different than the other BW tools. The 3-D stamps did work well. I picked the brain of my client in order to select the right accent stamps that Guy would like. That shotgun shell came out nice with the small rivet in the center.
  10. Thanks for the tip, Chief!
  11. My first time with this basket weave tool. I like it and am looking forward to the next time I get an order to use it!
  12. First post here. I love this site!! My brain is overwhelmed with the new things I have learned from fellow crafters. The bar area in my unfinished man-cave is where I am currently set up. I took this pic today. It is a bit messy at the moment because this is where it all happens. I have just finished 2 cool projects - a Drum Stick Quiver that attaches to a set, and forearm gauntlets carved with a cool CFH design that was made by a graphic artist that will do the final painting work. I'll post those in the critique forum soon. I have been looking at some of these fabulous workshops here and have many ideas in how I am going to build out my long term workshop. Thanks for all of the ideas! Chris
  13. Today I became a NewB to this cool site. What an excellent place for us who share the same passions and frustrations! I look forward to being a part of this site!
