  1. Leerworker, Saw your post which prompted me to go back to some PDFs saved several years ago. I saw the attached file and hope it may provide some benefit. Lonesome Dove... 2shews method.pdf
  2. Great job on the chest! I really like your bench set-up as well.
  3. I can recommend this eBay seller. I bought one his "vintage" leather knives similar to the one in this listing and about the same price. Sharpest blade I have ever used and at least as sharp as the Lisa Sorrell skiving knives; which were excellent right out of the box. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Vintage-Japanese-Skiving-knife-Leather-craft-37-180mm-Saburo/202620461502?hash=item2f2d1ee1be:g:OXEAAOSwfvlbvVAP&frcectupt=true
  4. This is what I used. Thin with an adhesive back and inexpensive. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0079XLR3A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Hope this helps.
  5. Excellent work. Stitching is fabulous!
  6. I could be wrong as I do not own one one of each, but I'd still bet it's very likely Ivan was supplying and custom branding the "Stohlman" knife for Tandy. I will certainly agree you can't go wrong with a Henley. Excellent knife with great blades.
  7. And you can buy the same knife at Ivan Leather in Taiwan. http://www.ivan.tw/index.php?route=product/product/detail&id=19001 I do not know what the price is, but they will quote it if you inquire through a contact email.
  8. These are photos of the finished stamp rack. I used red chestnut oil stain with 3 coats of polyurethane. Not too bad I think for what started out as a truck wheel chock.
  9. Thanks eglideride. The block face is actually 16" tall x 6-1/2 wide x 3-1/14" deep. With the back tilt, height from the desktop is 14 ". The footprint is 10" deep x 6-1/2" wide. The height was determined by what I could look at comfortably and to allow it to slide under a shelf on the top of my work desk. I live in an apartment and my work area is in a small bedroom with very limited space.
  10. I'm working on a new stamp holder and thought I'd share a few photos of it in progress. Solid oak, 13" tall, with a 30 degree back tilt. Stamp holes were drilled 2-1/2 inches deep, and swivel knife holes were drilled 1-3/4 inches deep. It will hold around 150 stamps when completed, 5 swivel knives, and 10 swivel knife blades. I still have finish sanding, sealer, oil stain, and polyurethane yet to go. I'll update with a photo of the completed piece. I have a pdf of the drill pattern if anyone would like a copy.
  11. A Tandy hefty handle will fit that stamp. I have ordered online from this company before. http://www.ivan.tw/index.php?route=product/product&cid=12. Or take a piece of pipe and cut the end like the end shown so the notches in the pipe fit over the supports bracing the circle. http://www.ivan.tw/index.php?route=product/product/detail&id=10618

  13. It's called a stippler and used as a backgrounding tool. Nice find! https://www.google.com/search?q=leathercraft+stippler&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjX_c3lmOXKAhXJRyYKHfazDosQ_AUICCgC&biw=1600&bih=749#imgrc=PRm_HUZqyGgNBM%3A
  14. Nice one on Ebay right now. You would have to arrange for shipping however. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Saddle-Maker-Bench-Leather-Stitching-Horse-Primitive-Dated-1777-/301862026512?hash=item464860fd10:g:aAQAAOSwJcZWebVm
