  1. Saddle Seat

    either way will hold the weight of the rider, although i have heard that in a very moist, wet environment over long periods of time the all leather seat will get soft
  2. Saddle #2 Started

    did you design the rigging pattern?
  3. Braiding Soap

    you might already know this but ray holes makes some stuff called rawhide cream u can use that stuff but it might be a little expensive, also you dont necesarly need animal fat, just take ivory soap and scrape it, possibly with a poatato peeler or something, and mix it wth some water over the stove, i have not made this stuff but the guy that taught me to braid uses it , i have a friend that makes a mix with snowseal and something else, ill get back to you with the mix
  4. Another Rawhide Honda Crossover

    braided another rawhide honda with the plastic burner, i just crowned the strings on the neck continuously till i had it long enough, dont be afraid to say what you think needs to change
  5. Copper Rivet Domer

    thank you, i guess i never though of using the dremel
  6. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    yeah some old fellow showed me how to make these, ive never really used bruce grants book for braiding, too hard to understand
  7. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    yeah i think your right, i doesnt look too bad either
  8. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    right away i find the middle of the strings, then i do a slit braid right in the middle of them, you could also braid 4 strands in the middle
  9. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    i bought them at my local feed store, i think some of the big chain stores like big r have them and i know buckaroobusinesses.com carries them
  10. Copper Rivet Domer

    Does anybody here know how to make copper rivet domers, i guess you could just drill out the end of some stock but that wouldnt be very round, i like to make my own stuff so this would be something i could save 30 bucks on
  11. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    no its not too bad, i have a long tapered spike i use, and i usually can get it all the way through, then i take out the spike and put in my 3/8 plug, the spike is a little larger than 3/8 so i have to hurry and put in the plug but i can usually get it done. i think the knots look better if you tie them before you put the plug in
  12. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

    I normally use rawhide burners on my rawhide hondas, but recently i have been using plastic burners, Plastic burners are really the way to go, you get the weight of a rawhide honda with the speed of a plastic burner, and when the honda gets wet it doesnt get so sticky and slow, please tell me whatcha think
  13. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas

  14. How I Braid Rawhide Hondas
