  1. You beat me to it immiketoo. That is exactly what I do and it works great.
  2. Please go ahead. Th pattern is for anyone to use.
  3. Your welcome. Your welcome, eh. Where are you located in Canada?
  4. Here is the pattern with notes fresh off my CAD system. Golf Scorecard Wallet 6x8.pdf
  5. If you need a pattern, I can PDF you one.
  6. I had a piece of vegtan and pig liner lefetover from my last notepad portfolio project so I would out a pattern for golf scorecard cover. Fits standard 6x8 and 5x8 scorecards.
  7. Thanks TexasCowboy62. The gluing was tricky but wax paper really saved the day. Works great to keep stuff from sticking together while you position it.
  8. Thanks for the work comment. That glue is also great when you want to sneak a piece in to the house from the garage to glue in front of the big screen when your wife doesn't allow that sort of thing.
  9. Rick, Unless to stick your nose in the bottle, there are no noticeable fumes to speak of. As noted below it's water based. That also means that nothing harsh for clean up, just water. I started to use it so I could glue in the house.
  10. Sonotube. Cardboard tubes used to pour concrete post for deck, etc. Very cheap to buy and available in a number of different diameters.
  11. Thanks. I use Lepage Pres-Tite Green Contact Cement. You can get it at Home Depot, etc. It is a water based contact cement. Brushes on very easily with a foam brush for big areas. I use a thin piece of plastic or a q-tip to apply to narrow or small areas. Let both sizes dry until clear and stick them together. I usually let it sit over night for a final cure. I also used it to glue the large pockets in place before stitching. It works really well. Never seen it come apart, even on my knife sheaths.
  12. First crack at a notepad portfolio cover. Designed to take a notepad or notebook up to 8.5"x11". Inside pocket with a card pocket plus an outside pen pocket. Veg tanned stained and oiled to try and give it give it a "worn" look from the beginning. Lined with pigskin and hand stitched. BTW, if you haven't done it, its really hard to line large pieces with paper thin leather and keep it smooth and not sticking where it's not suppose too. Near disaster on this a couple of times.
  13. Really hard to put a number on that. Never as deep as oil or spirit based dyes but seem to be adequate. I have been carrying around a black dyed front pocket wallet for the past several months. Shares a pocket with a knife and other pocket debris and and it's still going strong. I usually do a couple of coats applied with sheep's wool.
  14. Try giving the piece a light spray of water before applying the dye. Opens up the pores a bit. It will never penetrate like oil dye but I have used it a lot (very limited choices where I live) and never had a bad dye job or rub off.
  15. Precision stamping looks great, especially with the antique. Antiquing is something that I am just starting to try as well. Everyone seem to have an opinion for a resist. What di you use?
