  1. Choosing the right laser

    Thanks for sharing that information. I'm sure that there's a laser cutter in my future and every time I watch one in action I think of several things that I could do with one. I like how you use it for a big variety of different jobs. It was obviously a good investment for your shop.

  13. I like that.... could we see a few more pictures of it without the contents?
  14. Shabang! Leatherworks is what I decided to call my leather 'business'. I considered many alternate names that tied in some other areas of interest; guitars or computers. I'm a computer engineer in my day job and shabang had just enough geek potential to win the day. What's a shabang? Well, if you're writing a script (small program) on a unix computer system, the first line will contain the 'shabang'. It is a couple of characters (#!) that essentially tells the operating system how to interpret the script... which shell to run it in. The logo incorporates both the # and the !.... S#abang! My leatherworker.net handle, maxdaddy, is simply because I have a son named Max, and well, I'm his daddy. :-)
