  1. What types of products are you making? Accessories for those figurines, or larger scale items? I'm interested but I would need more information, AC is a two hour ride for me. Thanks, Keith
  2. Wouldn't you want your top piece smaller? I tried in another post to get answers on this and a couple of people said my top piece was too big, and I should subtract the thickness of the leather from the original circumference.
  3. Very very nice mike! How do you calculate your measurements for the pieces? The seat I just finished came out a little wrinkly at the end of lacing.
  4. Please draw the solution, I'm lost! Creepy? Ya think? Its a bar stool for a biker, so creepy works well!
  5. I made both top and bottom the same, bottom came out smooth, but not top, I think it has to do with the added padding, but I'm not sure why. My side piece was cut to the exact measurement of the circumference.
  6. I got wrinkles on the last bit of lacing, seat turned out great until the last ten holes! All holes were equal. What gives? https://db.tt/8FrJpa16 https://db.tt/8FrJpa16 https://db.tt/xKHRq9Dx
  7. Look up the Leather hut in Brooklyn, they sell some decent hides, no veg tan though. As far as tools go I haven't a clue. I'm only 45 mins from CS Osborne in Harrison NJ and I still pay$ 30 in shipping!! Figure that out.
  8. Your work is absolutely gorgeous no matter rookie or not, its the meaning that counts. At a time like that no one should judge any imperfections of your work. In my honest opinion it looks great, and i would pay top dollar . My condolences, Keith
  9. How far west in Jersey, I'm near Trenton and i love the idea. I haven't seen too many people from our area on this site. Hopefully this will attract more!
