    Ok then. Just for you
  3. Wow Rohn, that is a beauty, really like the lace on that, cute little gun!
  4. Finished this up the other day, WC 8oz, medium brown Eco Flo gel antique, sewn with tiger thread. I think it turned out great!
  5. Punch a row of holes in a piece of Tyvek and try to rip it, bet you won't be able to. It's pretty tough. I really don't trust just the tape either, but lots of makers do and it seems to work. I sew mine with a 5 SPI chisel, not so many holes, and quick!

    Problem with prickng irons

    I have a set the same. The black paint doesn't help them slide out, actually seems to make them stick. I sanded mine with 600 grit, then 800 grit till they were bare metal, then use beeswax on them fairly often. I also strop them every once in a while. They work fine now.

    So you wanna learn tooling....

    I'm not a carver, I'm a stamper! Haven't done any carving at all, but did watch Don's videos and thought I'm bored, hey why not give it a try? I don't have half the tools he recommends, don't even have a flower center, lol. I have been doing leather for many years and consider myself fairly good. Any way just for a laugh here is my take on this pattern. I'm not going to buy any more carving tools because I don't really enjoy carving. Not looking for corrective criticism because I won't be doing this again for a while. That all said Don's a pretty good teacher.
  8. Yes I've had the same problem, partially solved by using one of these.
  9. Looking at my bottle of Fiebing's Edge Kote, it says right there do not freeze! The rest of your items are correct.

    Wow looks great to me! The only thing I can see is maybe just a little tight on your stitching on the bottom, or maybe you haven't hammered it flat yet? Your stitching is very clean. Great looking project your buddy will love it!
  11. Matt S is right, they will all show when you dye. I always use gum trag as the last step after dyeing and before your finish coat. Doesn't show even if you get a little on the dyed portion.
  12. Wow nice job, the accent color looks great!
  13. Nice job, looks good in natural, it will age beautifully.
