  1. Looks fantastic, you sure that’s your 1st projects?
  2. Swivel knife with swivel blade maker?

    The only one I know of with a swivel blade is Duane Watts. Bruce Cheaney has a demo of it on utube. Hope that’s the one you are wanting.
  3. How did you get into leather work?

    I made a few things, wallet, bible cover, etc over 30 years ago then kids came along, got busy with family and other things. After kids were all grown and I retired about a year ago I dug out the old tools, added a lot of new ones, bought some leather and some craft aids started making coasters, wallets , checkbook covers, book covers, etc. Now I spend about 6 or 7 hours a day in what my family calls the leather lair or devils den (it’s really the basement) tooling, cutting, cutting etc on leather, I love it! Thanks for asking! Sincerly, Rodney
  4. How to keep my ruler from sliding?

    I use non slip tape, it’s like sand paper and self adhesive. It comes in different widths or you can cut to fit. I think most good hardware stores carry it. I put it on the back of my square, works great. I cut my leather flesh sid down. Hope this helps!
