  1. bikermutt07, There is also This guy makes a lot of shoes and has some instructional videos for sale, along with tool and supplies. It's not much cheaper. Skyrme's book is pretty regarded in the bespoke shoe community. I plan on getting a copy someday myself. A good book for education purposes is "Handmade Shoes for Men".ászló-Vass/dp/3848003686/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1520968724&sr=1-1&keywords=Handmade+Shoes+for+Men . It does not have patterns but is great on history and understanding the process. And inspiration for your own designs.
  2. I got into making dog collars

    These look great! Is there padding under the pigskin?
  3. Cobbler flat brass tacks

    I know it's been 4 months, but did you ever find a supplier?
  4. I like the design and layout! I've been thinking about making one myself. Only thing I would have done differently is have a couple more hole options for the closure. That way if I overstuff it I can still latch it. My only question is what is the large circle on the post side?
  5. This looks great! That color combo is awesome!
  6. If it hasn't completely hardened you might be able to save it with cement thinner. Pour some in and let it set for a while.
  7. Springfield Leather no longer accepting PayPal?

    It appears that they got rid of the option. It does not show up for me either.
  8. Dopp Kit

    Is that a pigskin liner? EDIT: Never mind! I reread the description. Great job! Love the outside color!
  9. The 29k is a great patcher but may not be the best choice for what you're doing. Most everyone I've seen making or reconstructing shoes use a wheel feed. The wheel feed will offer constant pressure which might help with the straight stitching. Depending on what type of shoes you'll be remaking, a post bed may be more useful too.
