  7. Portfolio

    Here is another picture, the color is wrong, first pictures color was ok. I purposely dyed portfolio that way to get that effect, it looks really nice, the photo doesn’t do it justice
  8. This portfolio was done with 2 -3 oz veg tan with mahogany stain, I was going to throw it away but wife wanted it. Lightly pricked the holes but the problem was I prick top layer with holes leaning left bottom leather holes leaned opposite, so when inserting the awl the hole spacing changed. Inside ok outside the holes got closer together making the thread smaller. Thread .08 mm. Posting mistakes may help others. Next time I’ll punch all the way through, I just wanted to make sure spacing was same on both sides, oh well I glue the front and back with cry spray
  9. Thank you Rockoboy, I really appreciate the comment, I am not very good at following messenges, you have more interest then me, by the way how’s the fishing down there
  10. Crc spray on contact glue causes no mess, like any contact glue it sticks well, don't buy cheap contact glue, 3m works well. No brushing and trying to get glue to the edges. Just spray and put together.
  11. I bought 20 sq.ft. of 3 oz. Alligator print leather and made a belt with 6 oz. Veg. Tan leather. Used crc spray adhesive which works great. The edges of the print leather can't be slicked down so I edged dyed then used mod podge which I then sanded and edge dyed again to get smooth edges.sewed with .8 mm tiger thread.
  12. Another 1911 rig

  13. Cereal box patterns

    That a great idea, I think I'll try packaging tape on edges thank
  14. Wallet

    Sorry to be late answering, I never use edge paint, dye edges and burnish, the leather was 2 to 3 ounce veg.tan dyed medium brown, the lining was calf skin from ebay.
