  1. Very nice, this would look good with my kilt.
  2. Great work! That much stitching would take a lot of people a long time, be proud!
  3. Nice, I like the addition of the challenge coin holder.
  4. Nice job, opens up a whole new world of possibilities to leather workers. There are many various medical devices this could have applications for.
  5. Good point on dropping the stitch into a groove, I will have to try that.
  6. These look very cool, especially the weathered flag and the Bill of Rights. I see a lot of possible applications that would sell. Great idea!
  7. I just recently started working with leather after my wife discovered the Midori Traveler's Notebooks. However, she did not want to order the refills online every time so she wanted to be able to go to a store and get the refill. So I went with the Field Notes or Moleskine 3.5" x 5.5" size. I used 4/5 oz. veggie tan leather for all projects. That being said I have decided to used Milled Veggie Tanned leather on any notebooks in the future because the leather became very stiff after staining, even with Neatsfoot oil. I know my saddle stitching and finishing needs work, but we all start somewhere right.
  8. Looks very professional. I know I would like something like this to take into meetings.
  9. These are very cool! I collected a bunch of patches from squadrons I worked with and I think they would be much better on leather after seeing yours.
  10. I was on the Connie, Kitty Hawk and Independence from 95 to 01
  11. Those are awesome pieces of art. Love the one with the anchor.
  12. They look great!
  13. I am also in Colorado. You can get glycerin bars at Sprouts or probably Natural Grocers. You can also look at Hobby Lobby at their glycerin melt and pour soap making section.
  14. Great Job! Really like the design of the Toiletry Bag. The handle is a great addition, this coming from someone who used to have to carry one from a berthing to the head/showers on an aircraft carrier.
  15. Looks great, where did you find those cool compass buttons?
