  1. Small projects to keep hands busy while "staying at home" these are all oil tanned and fun to make, the inspiration came from Art Shell, Mascon Leather. I took some "liberties" on the design made my changes and here they are. In the end they are still just dressed up thread burners! STAY HOME STAY SAFE
  2. I make my own tools from knives of all kinds to figure carving stamps... To many photos to upload just look at some of my older posts....
  3. AGREED. The one I purchased when I first started is an actual "groover" it cuts a groove into the leather so your stitches lay below the surface of the leather. @Bant If you zoom in you can see the tiny hole and cutting edge.

    Cutting mat

    @paloma thank you so much! The cost of shipping the mat was a little higher than I can afford currently but guaranteed I will be back to revisit this option! For now I have redone my cutting table with a local purchase from Joann's fabrics and using a coupon code I only paid $30 USD for a large 36"x59" cutting mat. Cleaning table top Mat placed with carpet tape as suggested by @Dwight Table back in place. Sample cut, shows the mat does scar but I think I will get my $30 of use out of it.

    @paloma you should show the mat after a cut has been made on it!

    Love the setup. My cutting table is 35"x55" UHMW 3/4" thick top 2x6 and 4x4 legs I'm looking at the cutting mats that @paloma posted the link for, to cover the UHMW.

  10. @Rolandranch gorgeous work! I've been away for a long time and can see the progress! Keep it up!!!
  11. Thanks, I still am making the vast majority of my tools and will continue to do so the knives are industrial bandsaw blade and hold an edge sooo good. I needed pull knives and have about 20 ft of blade stock so I made these. Thanks the coin pouch is oil tanned along with the wallet/organizer. The edges are burnished smooth

    How did your knives perform on this type of mat? Also they seem to be in the UK?
  13. It's been a long while since I posted so I figured I would share at least one or two pics of what I've been doing for fun.
