    The T series are no longer made by Tandy. They are Turnbacks. I will post some examples of how they are used when I get to the shop.
  12. Not deer hide, but something close. I did this one today, based on the really old one.
  13. “Raised” Effect/Beveling

    Thanks for the kind words. I should also point out that was done with no swivel knife cuts and a single pass with the beveler. I also lean the beveler back to get the other line.

    This one was several years earlier than to first... I think the flash on my camera washed them out a little bit.
