  1. I'm learning to brain-tan leather and was wondering about the advantages and disadvantages of using brain-tanned leather for tooling. I'm new to leatherworking, but am ultimately interested in transferring illustrations onto leather and carving them like this. Everything that I've read thus far indicates that I should be using veg-tanned leather rather than brain-tanned leather, but I'd like to be able to use the same leather for tooling that I'm using for garment construction. Any advice for a beginner?
  2. First Leather Carving Attempt

    well here it is , i bought a swivel knife and a few basic tools , some times i find the knife hops a little on the leather .... any idea why ?
  3. This is my first post so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have been doing a little leatherwork over the past 18 months or so. Mostly horse tack and items for personal use and for family. I would like to branch out maybe start selling some items to support my habit. Anyway here is a pancake holster I built for my brother-in-law's Taurus PT 140. I tried some new things for me. I have been drilling and stiching but on this one I built myself a stiching pony and used an awl. It is a little rough but it was good practice. Let me know what you think and what I need to improve on.
  4. (Actually calling myself a newbie is a misnomer as I just order some supplies yesterday and have yet to do anything.) Is "leather carving" and "leather tooling" the same thing? Are you actually carving away any material in "carving" or are you just smooshing down the leather? I didn't think I was interested in doing any of that "fancy stuff," but seeing some of the beautiful and original work on here makes me eager to try it all. My first project is going to be a relatively plain double layer dog collar decorated with a few rivets. One layer is going to be dyed black and one tan. Maybe my next one will have some carving/ tooling. Thanks!
  5. i like pure American style on floral carving, and i tried to draw this carving draft myself. i will be working and studing on it for better understanding Please crytic to help, thanks!
  6. Boy, when you guys say that you have to use it or you use it, it is the truth. I have been away from this for a couple of months and my carving, tooling and stamping have really suffered. However, the cover is still usable so I thought I would post it. Originally it was made with chrome tanned leather but was too flimsy, so I used that for the insert with a veggie tanned cover. This was my first attempt at double lacing and I really need to figure out how to finish off better. Also my first try with fiebings anique paste.
  7. I am making a duffle bag and would like to have the ends done completely in SHeridan style. the bag is going to be 12" tall X 14" wide X 23" long...... HOwever, I have not quite figured out the technique to laying out my own patters. And, yes, I do have the Sheridan Style Carving book, which is a lot of help with some really great information. SO, if you'd like to help me out, let me know. Thanks ahead of time!
  8. hi looking for leather carver in the UK willing to give lessons - basics already known, want to progress further - thks
  9. Hi, lovelies! After joining the April Challenge, Cheryl asked me to step in for Q this month. Welcome to the May Challenge; Figure Carving! I’m going change things up a little and actually give you a choice between a few different reference photos to study and work from – A full body nude, or Anatomy (hand, foot, arm, etc.) The whole point of the challenge is to mold and manipulate the leather to fit within the contours of whatever design/ photo you’ve picked. For example; I would take a thin (2 oz or so) piece of leather, case, cut and mold before attaching the leather to another, more thicker piece. (Photos and more detailed example to come a bit later.) Here’s the catch; you’re only allowed certain tools to work with: Swivel Knife Beveler - Be it regular or carving/smooth. Modeling Spoon/Tool Dye (If wanted) & Glue Photos: [Photo 1] [Photo 2 - You may pick one of the six photos.] [Photo 3] [Photo 4] That's it for now, let me know of your thoughts and I'll be posting my own images tomorrow, as well as answer any questions! ~Rae.
  10. This was done for a friend who is ex military, designed to be worn on the right side but as you can see the blade is pointing forward, this was done at my friends request as this is how he wore and used his knife when in the forces.
  11. After being away from leatherworking for more than 20 years, I've decided to get back into it as a form of sanity maintenance. (At present, the jury is still dilberating as to whether I made the right decision.) As a firearm journalist by profession, my primary interest in leatherworking is making holsters. In addition, part of my interest stems from my disability. Being wheelchair bound, most of the strong-side holsters I've reviewed, don't suit someone like me who's contantly seated. Since there don't seem to be any leatherworking classes in my area, I've had to rely primarily on how-to books and Internet forums, tutorials/videos for guidence. Despite a lack of strength and fine-motor skills due to both my disability and arthitus, I'm having fun and, in the end I suspose that's all that matters With the long-but-necessary back story out of the way, I'm curious to know if there are any really good books you can recommend on either the subject of holster making or carving/tooling? I say "really good," because I've come across some books, such as Al Stoehlman's "How To Make Holsters" lacking with regard to detailed explanation. I'm also been entertaining the idea of trying my hand at tooling. Given my unique set of circumstances, however, I'm uncertain about it. Nonetheless, my hope is that there are some others out there, who, while they may or no share a physical disability, may also rely on similar instruction venue for their instruction, enough to recommend some must-have books on making holsters—including a introduction to carving/tooling so I can undertand the process, in order to determine if it's something I'd like to pursue. Thanks, Bob Boyd
  12. Wc Carving Leather Question

    Hi Everyone - So I worked for this company using Horween veg-tanned leather (HF, Essex, Dublin) + I wanted to start exploring leather working on my own time. I purchased a side of Tooling/Carving Leather from WC, since I've read that this type of leather is used a lot for belts/handles and that's what I'm looking to make. When I got the leather, I was surprised by how rigid it is. When you knock on it, it sounds like you're knocking on cardboard. And since I'm new to carving leather, I wanted to ask if this is what its supposed to be like when you get it straight from the tannery?
  13. Props To Barry King!

    So, I just ordered a variety of stamps from Barry King and the guy I was talking to was extremely knowledgable and very helpful. I got a bunch of the things I need and while we were closing out the transaction I asked who I was speaking with. Turns out it was Barry himself! I don't know why I expected it to be someone else, but I was pleasantly surprised and the service was outstanding! Barry listened to what I was trying to do, and was able to guide me to the tools I need and he was able to explain WHY i need them in order of importance, AND work with my budget. I highly recommend you give him a call if you want to purchase high quality tools and deal with a first rate company! Mike .
  14. Hi all, I made a Dirk scabbard for a friend with Celtic carving on the front and his name on the back., we also make the dirks ( we buy in the blades and put the handles on ourselves). The knife sheath was for someone in the Royal Marines, the black one is for use when out on operations and the carved Celtic cross one is for more private use and to show off. Hope you enjoy them. Stuarty.
