  1. D&D Costume WiP

    Great job. Really like the overall look. I wish Steampunk had been a thing back in my renfair days, I really like the blend of history, fantasy and sci fi.
  2. Satchel

    Ok, I see what you're talking about. That is a nice touch. I had noticed the look, but was blind to how it was achieved. Very nice detail. Thanks for explaining Plinkercases. Great job Kncorey.
  3. Satchel

    I love the bag! What do you mean about the "return on the gusset"?
  4. I've been wanting to do a bag for my wife. If it comes out half as nice as that did I'll be very pleased. Good job.
  5. Just about finished a couple of phone cases for some coworkers. The one with the barb wire is completed, still need to finish the edges on the other one. The guy who ordered the tooled case lost his home to Hurricane Irma. So it has changed from a job to a gift.
  6. Happy little accident

    If you had been doing leather work for 20 years I would be impressed by your work. Being a newbie, I am doubly impressed. Looking good! Keep posting you progress.
  7. Double shoulder holster

    Nice design. Is that your design, or is that from a commercial pattern?
  8. Another great looking piece! Fantastic attention to detail, as usual.
  9. Good job. I really like your decorative cuts. I struggle with mine. Keep up the great work.
  10. Panama straw

    With your pricing I'm not surprised you sell everything you make. Your work is exceptional, and worth every penny. Love the creativity of both the straw and the coconut. You've sparked my imagination, now I need to try to bring it to a finished product.
  11. Thanks Roland. Color is diluted fiebings British tan, Resolene resist, then Fiebings medium brown antique. Letters colored with Fiebings cordovan.
  12. Thanks Halitech and YinTx. I appreciate the kind words. That damn triweave is my bane! I love the look when it's done well, but you're right about getting off in a few spots. I used the medium size Craftool, which seems to be easier to keep on line than the small one. One of these days I am going to splurge on one of Barry King's, but for now I can't justify the expense. To critique myself, I wish I had not used the serpentine in the very corner. I prefer the look of a solid "spade" shape in the corner, but I got in a hurry and put the stamp in one corner without thinking it through, so I had to do it in all four corners. Oh well, another learning experience.
  13. Just finished this for one of the truck drivers at my work. Interior is from Springfield Leather.
  14. Looks great. Just to float an idea for the liner- how about a micro-fiber cloth? They are soft enough to be used as lens cleaning cloths, so should be good for protecting expensive lenses from scratches.
  15. iPad case

    That looks great. I have done a lot of borders with barbed wire stamps, but don'tthink I've ever seen carved barbed wire before. Came out really nice.
