  2. Im general what weight do you use for your leather? I have a project to recover a seat with good leather and I wanted to get it right.
  3. I know technically this should go into the motorcycle section, but here it is anyway. I am doing my first seat for a fellow, and all he really needs is a cover replacement. Can I use the same base that the current seat is on? (he said the whole things comes off.) Can I just take the old torn cover off of the padding and make a new cover while keeping the padding and the base it sits on? I was hoping to tool some nice designs into it also.
  4. So I work part time at a used book store and we have many beautiful books bound in italian leather, on one of them the spine is starting to dry out. what should I use to restore it?
  5. I've seen tom's work and I greatly admire it, I would like to make it myself, I just have trouble with 3D patterns. The pictures are useful though.
  6. I got an attache case from bighousedaddy.com
  7. I am also interested! Thank you for being so generous. I would also be interested in the steampunk stuff.
  8. O would love a set! Dagazlxl@gmail.com
  9. So I want to surprise my husband for his birthday with a full facial plague doctor mask but I'm struggling to get the pattern to come together right. Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, or maybe even a pattern that I could use?
  10. Has anybody used these new pro series stamps from tandy? What is the prevailing opinion? Are they worth getting or not?

      Wow! Congratulations!!

  12. So I'm not really sure if this is allowed to be posted. I know the book is really old so it is probably in the public domain by now, but it seems like kinda a rarer book, though I'm even unsure of that. My link
  13. Hey guys, I'm looking to make a leather cloak lined with reindeer fur. I will be using a full hide from waterhouse leather so that there will be no back seam and there will be a hood. My question is, how do I do the lining? also if I wanted to make the lining detachable so that I can take it out how would I do that?
  14. Bottom line question is, will the tandy brand embossing rolls work in the tippmann boss embosser
  15. okay, here are the pictures, I don't know how I got signed in under another name before. LOL ;P Again, these are all in veg tan leather but I will be making more of each in latigo. They are not completely finished, the veg tanned bracers will be custom carved while the latigo bracers will be plain here are a few more. I will also be making barrettes, and key fobs, and small items like that.
  16. So I got my hands on a really old book called "A complete guide to ornamental leather work; with twenty-three cuts." and it mentions using basil leather and I was wondering what on earth is basil leather and where can I find it?
  17. I looked at their site but could find no latigo leather. Thanks for the help though.
  18. Tandy's Leather craft Library currently has this on digital download for 3.99 Cheers! https://www.leathercraftlibrary.com/p-1721-shoulder-holster-pattern-4416.aspx
  19. I'm looking for good latigo leather. I know it's not cheep but It seems to be way expensive from commercial places. Anybody have any? If not then it's okay. I'll figure something out.
  20. Nicely done from what I can see. I hope my first saddle looks this good. I will be learning this coming summer.
  21. One more try. I think I figured it out. Thanks Panther for the advice. And the last
  22. Here are a few pictures of a recent back quiver project I've been working on. It has a three point chest strap and is adjustable. It was made to fit my brothers frame, but my smaller sister can also wear it if she cinches down the strap. this is the top.
