  1. Finally got my shop set up!

    I like it! Looks like you have an awesome view out those windows too.
  2. I believe you're right Mattsbagger. I was just hoping to be able to use what I had, but I may just get some different dye. Thanks.
  3. Hey guys, I have a fella' wanting me to try and match this color on a rifle sling but I'm limited on my dyes/antiques. I have some saddle tan antique that is close to the figure carving in the middle of the sling pictured here, but I'm not sure what I'm gonna' do to get that darker color for the main body of the sling. I was thinking maybe neatsfoot oil or olive oil either over or under the antique...Anyways any suggestions or recommendations on color would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Thats nice garypl. Dang what a friend to make something that cool for a guys birthday, and thanks for sharing the dimensions with us!
  5. Knife Sheath for Esee 6

    Very nice! I really like that color with the white thread. Dig the Punisher skull too.
  6. Been practicing carving and tooling.

    Yeah when i was watching videos of it I noticed that it might be tricky to move your work piece with one hand and pull the lever with the other. When you say "throat", Im guessing thats the distance between the frame of the machine and where the needle is?

    That's looks cool. I have to take breaks from my projects all the time for whatever reasons. I think it helps sometimes to get up and get away from it for a bit. I did a belt for my wife with a repeating floral pattern that ran the whole length, and I definately had to take breaks here and there. I don't think it hurts a thing. I was just looking at the Tippmann last night online, but I'm just not ready to get a machine yet.

    Very Nice! Did you use Fiebings oil dye or their alchohol based dye?

    Thanks guys!
  11. New rifle sling finished

    Yes that way seems to work well. I actually learned how to do these by watching Chiefs videos. They were a big help. The Black River Laser templates are great. Thanks guys.

  13. New rifle sling finished

    Here's the latest rifle sling I finished this evening for a buddy of mine. I used Eco flo super sheen for the resist and Eco Flo med. brown antique gel over that. Buffed it good and topped it off with a couple of good coats of Aussie using a hair dryer to get it to penetrate better, then I buffed it again. The buck came from an old hunting book cover that was my grandfathers.
