  1. Patterning the old way when the CAD is just too hard

    I can imagine why wife now... YOU SPENT HOW MUCH ON A LEATHER BAG? funny, when I read that back and reverse the situation when she buys a bag... You spent how much on a bag?
  2. Patterning the old way when the CAD is just too hard

    Looks fabulous! What do you do with the tester bag when all is finished? Send to Ireland??
  3. Patterning the old way when the CAD is just too hard

    That’s a beautiful looking bag. Your explanation of the process is soo helpful to those of us who are new to leatherworking. Thanks.
  4. Replacing Baseball cover

    Great idea! What weight leather and did you skive the edges?
  5. George Barnsley plough gauge

    Someone posted a link to some of his tools a few weeks ago, I ordered a selection of the cheaper tools because I didn’t really need anything specific... when I received them I was so disappointed. The quality was not good at all more like cheap tools from China. I spent around 100 pounds sterling, Maybe it was just me... but I couldn’t recommend his cheaper tools. Just know what you’re ordering first.
  6. Propper saddle stitch attempts

    Have you looked at Nigel Armitage’s videos? For the price if a coffee per month? He goes into detail on every aspect of the saddle stitch. When you’re struggling with the finer detail of leather work I think it’s worth spending a little to get it right. For me... I’ve spent a small fortune setting up my hobby so I thought why not spend a little on learning as well.
  7. Briefcase -satchel

    Yes his work is very impressive. You are well on you way to being great. If you don’t mind a little critique... concentrate on your stitching because not everyone knows how good you should be at tooling but everyone knows when your stitching is off.
  8. Billfold for a Friend

    Very nice! I like the carving but I especially like the shading / 3D effect on the horse.
  9. Briefcase -satchel

    That’s fabulous work for only a year practice! Love the detail in the carving. Really impressive! It will be interesting to see your work in another couple of years if you keep this level of work up...

    Looks great! And a lot of work. Good job.
  11. They have also refunded my VAT as i submitted a VAT number when ordering. So... I paid them a total of 9.90 euro in total for the samples.

  14. Edge paint VS Burnished edges showdown!!!

    Thank you for explaining your process. I used fiebings tan kote paint on a satchel and it feels tacky and rubs off against the leather. I’m not sure what finish I could use to cover the paint? I have ordered Giardini paint to try out for the future.
  15. Card wallet

    Very nice wallet. Can’t fault it from where I’m looking. (Except I favour hand stitching) Beautiful texture to the pigskin. What is the printed leather?
