  1. It's a design from one of those Al Stohlman stencils, I'm not designing my own yet. It's 9oz leather. It just doesn't look right. I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I used to have an issue where I was tooling with the leather way too wet, so I stopped doing that and all my work looks improved, but I still feel like something is not "clicking"? Like I'm missing something about this. I have most of the Al Stohlman books including Figure Carving Finesse. Sometimes it's a bit overwhelming and confusing though, and most of all I wish I could see his work in real life, because I stare at the flat photos in the books and I wonder how deep the cuts are and such...and sometimes it's hard to make out what effect he's trying to teach? I feel like I need to see and touch to really understand, but that's not possible...I don't know any leatherworkers in my area either. I feel like maybe I'm striking too hard or cutting too deep? Beveling too deep? Using the wrong bevelers? Stohlman recommends certain specific bevelers for figure carving, but I don't have those exact ones (yet). I have these straight bevelers, B935 and the bigger/wider version of that one. Will it really look THAT much better if I use the triangle-shaped "figure bevelers" Stohlman says to use? Also I don't know what Stohlman means when he talks about using the modeling tool to "smooth and round off edges" of the beveling. Like, I see this ledge that occurs when you bevel, but I don't really understand how to make it round, when I try to use the modeling tool on it it just feels like I'm making the image less dynamic and pressing the edges down so they don't stand out as much. idk if that makes sense. Obviously the lines inside the animal (supposed to be muscle definition) is a hot mess. Also I suppose I should add some fur texture? So idk. Any and all advice and critique is welcomed. I kinda like how this turned out because I really like working with thick leather, it allows a lot of depth which is fun, but I still feel like I'm not understanding something about it.
  2. The Art of Making Leather Cases by Al Stohlman - Vol.1, 2 and 3 All 3 books are in excellent condition. The only signs of wear are on the exterior covers (shown in photos). The pages have been virtually untouched and are pretty much in mint condition. Asking $45 for the 3 volume set - shipping is included to the US (Priority Flat Rate Envelope/Mailer). Other countries PM me for additional shipping costs. Payment through Paypal preferred. Shipping &Tracking info will be uploaded through PayPal's website.
  3. Colour Chart

    Hi there, I am in the process of making a guitar strap using some patterns from Peter Main's book "Australian Leather Carving" and in the section on colouring he refers to Al Stohlmans book "Colouring Leather" and the colour reference chart in there. Has anyone made one of these charts and if so can you let me know what are the main colours used. I am particularly having trouble identifying the first colour which looks like an ochre. I mainly use raven oils as that is what I can get nearby, (Brisbane) I have been doing leatherwork on and off for a number of years but never really been concerned about specific colours before, but I would like to get the carving of the gums reasonably accurate. Cheers Mark
  4. I just noticed from the latest Leather Crafter Journal that our own Bob Park (alias Hidepounder) has received the 2015 Al Stohlman Award! Congratulations to one of the finest leather crafters out there! No one deserves this more than Bob Park not only for his talent and experience but his willingness to share them so freely. We've all benefitted in one way or another from his generosity right here on this forum. Thank You, HidePounder for setting the bar so high! Michelle

  8. Another thread led me to a thought, why did good leather instruction and pattern books begin and end with Al Stohlman? Am I right, or just not looking in the right place? My favourites are Al Stohlmans Handbook of Stitching, Cases 1, 2, and 3 and his Leathercraft Tools book. What are your favourites? While we are on the subject of leather 'knowledge', I do understand that here on this board is by far the best instruction if you can find and collate it. BW Claire
  9. Has anyone seen this book and know where I can get a copy? Amazon has none. http://www.amazon.com/Ann-Stohlman-Personal-Patterns-Portfolio/dp/B000M1BJ3E/ref=sr_1_22?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1389311011&sr=1-22&keywords=al+stohlman
  10. I have two Tandy / Stohlman Round Knives For Sale or Trade $40 each OBO plus shipping or $70 plus shipping for the pair. I am open to trades, let me know what you have. They are Tandy item 35014-00 for the bigger one and 35017-00 for the smaller one. Both have very limited use and look brand new. I got them with a set of tools I bought and didn't need these.
  11. Lately I've been taking my coffees on the go (traveling by bike). These ball jars have great covers for sticking in a bag somewhere. The only thing is they get too hot to hold... so i made a koozie for it. This is also my first attempt at some al stohlman horses.
  12. Was in my storage room the other day and peeked in the protective cases at these two Stohlman saddles I have had for years. It occurred to me that what a shame it was that I only look at them a few times a year and that nobody else has really ever seen these saddles. I have been told by a few that they are possibly the best Stohlman saddles in existence. Whether they are or are not they are beautiful and I wanted to share them with you guys who can appreciate them. I purchased these from Ellis Barnes of the legendary G & H tool company. I was in his shop with few other saddle makers and we were chewing the fat when he asked me to climb up a ladder into the loft of his shop and grab the saddles under the blanket. Imagine our surprise when they were two unridden saddles that Al had made Ellis and his wife, I guess they were all pretty tight. After some discussion with Ellis I ended up taking them home. Please enjoy them Sorry it wont accept my pics. They are small JPEGs, I will try to figure it out
