  1. Since I posted the finished pics t oour site and Social media,, we have several on order now
  2. here is the finished items on the bike
  3. And here is the final product. The Kora clasps work great.. First time using them.. Will use them again. The straps will go around the rails of the fender rack and attach to hold the lid closed. Front straps secure it to the fender rack to stop forward/backwards movement. Tool roll straps slip thru securing straps on the base to attach to the trunk. The whole unit can be easily removed and used as a small suitcase.
  4. Any leather used with OIl tanned leather will have some of the oils leach into it, i used oil tan teather on heel portions of my mocs and the deertan leather absorbed some of the oils, giving it a darker tone 1-2 cms all around the oiled leather, I didn't mind, kind of like the look.
  5. Thanks Mato I am sewing it up today hope to have it finished in a day or so, tool roll is almost completed. client wante d tool roll to be able to mount separatly or to the thrunk. I redesigned the trunk bag lid so it has a longer side panel that will be home to the clasps that thr securing straps woll attach to.. Should have it completed by the first of the week. Cheers Rick & Heather Kings County Forge
  6. This is what i moc'd up for this project. the inner gusset will have a small lip to it while the top lid will have a side sewn on to drap over the side by an inch or so., the ends will taper off to meet on the rounded corners,
  7. Hey Folks I have this project and would like some input. ' Client sent this picture of a trunk/ tool roll kit, it wil lstrap to a rack as seen in the pic. Yes small pic, I could not find a larger one. Question has anyone used the Kora Heavy Duty Bag Clasp the twist kind... how well do you like them? The main bag/trunk has a handle facing towards the rider, and the closure for the lid is also here... my main concern are the edges of the top lid and how to keep weather out, I am considering the gusset flaps like a tool roll but looking for other options... what would your guys suggest? Cheers Rick KingsCountyForge
  8. The owner has decided to try one of the Thunder caps, And it is a English Sheperd dog.
  9. I have some craft paper templates that I have used on our Chow Chow. with success.... will be making the move to leather prototype tomorrow once I get back to the shop.
  10. The client is quite sane, he an his family along with the dog are going thru training and the dog is also being medicated, The dog trainer actually suggested it, in a change it may limit or eliminate the use of medication for the dog. He is simply trying to find alternate methods to limit the visual stimulation of the dog. To make it a happiers expereince all the way around. IF I was in the same situation I would bne seeking out alternatives as well.
  11. Great Idea, the client wants to limit the amount of visual stimulation, so this might be the ticket... thanks for the suggesstion
  12. I suggested a muzzle type to the client, he insisted he didn't want any sort of muzzle on the dog.... might make a collar with a dog bone visor shape, see how taht works out.. craft paper time...
  13. Has anyone made a set of blinders for a dog.... like the horse ones only smaller (i guess). I have a client looking for a set for his extremely over anxious dog, I am not even sure where to start on this type of project.... make a collar and run the blinders off each side... wondering how to keep them from being an addition to the problem with the dog. Any suggestions/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Rick KCF2013
  14. I used the tandy pattern for a reference and made my own pattern for a "bush hat" here is a pic of a couple finished hats and a pic of one that after I was almost done sewing the brim on..I realized I had the wrong size brim with the wrong crown.... lesson learned.

    I think on the next ones i will go with the resin, I have access to plenty of pitch to make my own brewers mix but I believe for everyday use the resin would win out in the long run, and able to use hot beverages as well. Although I have had water sitting in one for going on day 3, no signs of weakness or leaks, with just baked in beeswax
