  1. That is a really nice case. If you aren't worried about the water try American Bison. I think it would look great and it is strong.
  2. Tips from Uncle Dave

    I purchased a four by eight sheet of canvas for burnishing very cheap, compared to any leather outlet store. Hobby Lobby or any store that sells tent supplies sells it.
  3. Recommendations for dremel burnishers

    I am not sure where I saw this video, A guy made one with a nail and a piece of wood.Check you tube. I couldn't believe how easy it looked.He had no other tools, glue and sand paper and a drill. Jim
  4. LOL I had to make a belt for a friend and he wanted a brownish red look. I went with the Mahogany and added OX Blood. I only used an eye dropper full to about 4 oz Mahogany. We belong to a metal detecting club. When they say his belt, I had about another five people ask for the same color.I made one for myself, it came out nice. Jim
  5. Tan-Kote sprays well, use a little water. Remember that Tan-Kote is used to thin antique paste. I wouldn't use it over anything that I antiqued.
  6. I have been using it for a while, I love it. I add a little red to get a reddish hilight. Jim
  7. THIS belt design..

    Check out Als Book, Belts Galore on page 10. It is not the exact but close.

  9. Crimson hides pricking iron

    I just purchased a pair of Seiwa stitching chisels. They seem to be very well made for the price. Jim

  11. Alphabet stamping on a Firefighter Shield

    Thank you very much for the great tutorial. I have to make something similar for my metal detecting club. Where did you buy your stamps from? I will need the same size. I have to put mine in a circle. Jim
  12. I have the same glue pot. I don't use it, garbage. I am going to try something else.

    Hi Bruce, Great tip, do you normally do the both borders first? Jim
  15. Renewing rawhide mallets

    You did a good job, looks great. I felt the same way as Catskin. I soaked some rawhide overnight and wrapped it over the old surface. It is a little heavy, but it works fine. Jim
