    You might want to check out Leather Laces Direct on the American Leather Direct website. Offers many colors.

    longer stitching punch?

    Try rubbing the punch across some beeswax.
  7. Interesting info, Harry. Have you heard about Logwood?
  8. Rockoboy, one of the earliest people to inspire me was a lady from Fremantle who I communicated with through the mail long before this internet thing. I had the pleasure of meeting her and her husband when they visited the States. The greatest benefit of this forum IMHO is that it brings our collective knowledge, aspirations, and inspiration together in one place in almost real time. I especially enjoy your profile entry of " repurposing somebody's junk". That should serve you well.
  9. Don Gonzales is another great one. He has this unassuming down home demeanor when he shows his techniques that makes it easy to understand. Just a quick note to you mutt.... I have seen time and time again how you encourage others on this forum. I would just like to encourage you to keep it up.
  10. Ian and Nigel are gifted teachers for sure and certain. Their Youtube videos are a treasure trove of experience and knowledge. Nigel is a member here; but I can't recall if Ian is or not. Thank You for the input.
  11. I second this. Thank you for a well reasoned response. I have seen some of your posts on the tools that you make and just want to say excellent work.
  12. In another topic here on the forum about a Push knife, member Mattsbagger attributes a video by noted holster maker Sam Andrews for getting him started into leather working. Even those of us who claim to be self taught have received inspiration in the craft from others. Many members here are very generous in sharing their knowledge and encouragement. How many people have inspired you along the way as you work to make each project better than the last? Whether through personal mentoring, books, videos, conversations here on the forum, or whatever --- name some names. Living or deceased, who has contributed to your skill and knowledge?

    You are entirely welcome. Give it a try and hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised at how much control you will have with a bit of practice.
