    WIP Custom Cowboy Rig

    This is ART! Not what I would want to pack the big iron in when I were roving around in the wild west, but nevertheless proof of exceptional craftsmanship! My favorite is the eagle-skull.

    Quick Arrow Head Belt

    Thank you all for your kind words! I filled the whole strap with impressions, cut off the excess and made a keeper of it. It would be my pleasure if you could make use of the idea!

    Quick Arrow Head Belt

    The template made of a plastic folder and two rulers helped a lot. Comments welcome.
  7. Gorgeous bag, great video -- thanks for the descriptive presentation of the production process!
  8. Why I like it complicated and don't simply scribe a middle line on a belt (with angled BW) I explained in anaother thread ("simple basketweave belt"). Here I present another Philosopher's Stone. Actually I'm aiming for a machine in which the stamp clicks in and is then moved automatically from position zu position. In the Video I show a more simple prototype : https://youtu.be/BDUniAceKmo
  9. Yeah … the obsession ... I'll throw something together. But I do not consider myself being qualified as a teacher here. I'm happy with every little progress I make and from time to time I discover the Philosopher's Stone which, after a while, proves to be just a stone ...
  10. Thanks for the compliments! Since I had ruined a belt recently, I reassessed the angle I had found (paper ) on leather as well - its exactly the same! To me this is important because I want the impressions to run along the fold line. As I said ... it's an obsession. ..
  11. Thank you @noobleather and @Smartee! I didn't do much in the meantime. Just oiled the piece and did the single-layer-edges: Moistened, slicked, dyed with oil dye, rubbed in a mixture of bees wax and glycerin soap (which might be nonsense from a scientific point of view but seems to work well [Woody Allen: "Whatever Works" ]).
  12. Thank you, @hawgrider !
  13. @SickMick, @fredk and @YinTx thank you for the compliments! @fredk you are right. I should have added some more rows on the backside and completed the border stamping.
  14. Thank you both, Vyo and Rohn , for your kind words!
