    Dopp Kit Cover

    Thanks. This piece took 10 hrs to trace, cut and tool. I usually average about 1 hour per circle plus the fill in areas.

    Thanks It's a Chuck Smith flower center with a Barry King center shader around it.

    Dopp Kit Cover

    I tooled this piece to make myself a dopp kit but have gotten to lazy to finish it. Still trying to find some soft chromium tanned leather to make the gusset out of. I made one from some veg tanned leather and dyed it the same color but it was some cheap Tandy leather and it's pretty stiff.

    Seats and Door Panels

    It was for a job. I would love to have this vehicle. LS-1 motor with a Pro charger, overdrive trannny and Ford 9". Not all that big won it sitting on the ground but it's not mine.

    Tooled Door Panels

    These are the door panels to match the tooled seats in the International Travel All. The car has to be in Houston on Feb. 21 so I should have some finished pictures of the seats and door panels in a couple of weeks. The section with arm rest will be hair on hide and the section with the wi9ndow crank will be walnut wood.

    Bolt Bags

    Thanks for the comments. Embossing is when you push the image out from the back. Then you build a plug that fits in the image so it doesn't collapse. The plugs in the brown set are made of 6/7 oz. with another 6/7 oz. on top of that for the hardhat and the another little strip on top of that for the brim of the hardhat.
  8. Here's a couple of sets of bolt bags. They wanted durable. They are 6/7 oz. Hermann Oak with the top trim out of some cheaper Tandy 3/4 oz. because it seems to stay a little stiffer after I wet it to fold over the top. The skulls in both sets are embossed. They are lined with Flame Retardant Kevlar material.
  9. Prototype for some bolt bags I'm getting ready to start making This one is unlined made out of 6/7 oz. Herman Oak and the light colored leather trim is some 3/4 oz. Tandy leather. I'm wanting to make them out of 4/5 oz. lined with some 2/3 oz.. Looking for something thin (canvas maybe) to line them with so the outside can be 6/7 oz.

    Tooled Wallet

    I was just looking at the presser foot and it was tilted to the back with just the back touching. Changed that presser foot right before sewing that guitar strap and this wallet. One of those ID10T errors. Been using that machine for years and have never had that problem. The edges are burnished using Glycerin soap, canvas and wax. I can't seem to get the Wyo Sheen to look good on the edges so I usually just put some Atom Wax on the edges when finished.

    Tooled Wallet

    Thanks Gary, If your talking about the beveling around the tooling I use Barry King Bevelers then a spoon modeling tool one pass to smooth it up and then a ball point modeling tool to bevel the edge of the tooling so it doesn't look so flat and that also widens the beveling and smoothes it up more.

    Tooled Guitar Strap

    This strap is for my wife's brother and Christmas presents are suppose to be a surprise. So I couldn't make it custom fit. He'll just have to deal with it. I'll tell him I will make a new tail piece if it's to long.
  13. New wallet for myself. This one has Kangaroo for the inside.
