    place mat

    Thank you for your kind comments . The dragon was a practice piece for a laptop bag I made. I was quite happy with the way the dyeing turned out, trying to give the impression of smoke. T

    place mat

    Hi All, I have been playing with some stamps, and came up with this place mat . It's a bit of a copy of something I saw on youtube . Having said that, I am actually quite pleased with it. I want to get into more of this sort of thing as I approach retirement. It is made from 3.2mm thick veg shoulder. While I was here I also put up another one I done a while ago. What do you think ?

    Tooled and Wet Molded Multi-Tool Case

    This is really lovely work. I have made a couple myself but I've not been able to get the bottom corners anywhere near as clean as yours. What's the best way to go about it? T

    Nice work. That's a great idea about the gloves. my thumb joints have started aching where I apply pressure to grip the needle. Thanks . T
  5. All really great work. I particularly like the guitar strap and biker tool roll, I will have to try making those myself, though i'm nowhere near your level . T
  6. Really nice work. What type of leather have you made it from? T

    Jd62. Yes, another good idea. I'll practice a few options. I'll post the piece when I've done it,(ruined or not) to let you see the results. T

    Hi All, I have tooled this dragon onto 2mm veg for my daughters laptop cover. She would like it dyed black, but will it stand out in black? I was going to antique it then dye it light brown. What do you all think? Thanks. T
  12. Very nice. What type of leather is that? Did you dye it. T
  13. Hi. I used metropolitan leather near Northampton. Very good people. They will give you all the help you need. T
  14. Hi, I used 1.2 mm veg tan shoulder. Folded it, so as you have grain top and bottom. Also you have a lot of choice of colour.

    Not burnishing belt edges!

    I would also not skip this stage. You could try a drill to burnish, you could set the spindle speed slower so as not to burn.
