  1. Images for round knives https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=round+knife&rlz=1Y3GQQX_enGB535GB535&espv=1&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sboxchip=Images&sa=X&ei=X8x1VYbQB_CU7QbB_4PwBQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=360&bih=559
  2. Very cool thing to make, or did you slip with the round knife I like it a lot.
  3. Welcome to the forum, Peder!
  4. Thanks for describing that, very interesting. I'd like to make a removeable tank cover with a soft lining, perhaps suede or microfiber cloth to protect a custom paint job when its being used for general use.
  5. How did you manage to tool the formed leather after the wet forming? I'd have guessed the tooling would be done before forming, but then it may stretch.
  6. Thanks Wishful. After tooling, I gave a light application of neatsfoot oil, left it to soak for a week then I painted two coats of satin sheen onto the eagle and left it for a few days. Then I applied Fiebings black antique over the whole area and wiped off the excess and buffed it when dry. Then I lined it, cut the shape and punched the holes. Finally, I finished it in saddle lac and laced it.
  7. Ive used the triple loop lacing 'braid', but not really tried the mexican braid for a live project, I plan to as I think it makes any project look more classy. Hope its easy to splice.
  8. Thank you, Thats another one to try out. The moulding looks nice and smooth too.
  9. Very nicely done. May I ask what finish you used? It looks perfect!
  10. This is the Manowar Battle Hymns album cover picture that began as a test piece but it turned out ok so I finished it and dedicated to a friend who passed away last year. I'll be giving it to his widow. There are a few things I'll improve on my own patch when I make it and I may try a less glossy finish like super sheen. I used Saddle Lac for this one and although it will offer good protection, its a little shiny. I found it impossible to take good pictures without reflections!
