    Edge Paint Applicators

    I also use the bamboo handle style recommended by Tor - works really well and I think it only cost $5 or $6 on eBay. Gary

    Something Does Not Feel Right

    Every few months I get requests from some 3rd world country to buy my products, They want me to use their shipper, have me pay for shipping and will pay me by credit card. Of course they will dispute all charges and split money I would have paid to the shipping company. Unless I am dealing with a previous customer, I only ship product after I receive funds in my account via wire transfer. Once the funds hit my account there is nothing they can do to reverse it. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is! Gary

    Custom "Boxer" notepad cover

    Thanks for clearing that up Y! Reason I asked is that I am planning a journal notebook for my friend’s daughter who recently graduated from veterinarian school. I want to use some 8-10 oz leather to get a nicer base to carve, I was planning to use thinner leather for the spine - just mulling over how to attach it. Is the lighter color leather on the inside of your notebook the spine or is it the soft liner leather? My thought was to bevel the center edges of the front and back covers so it is easier on the hands when carrying it. Then lay the spine piece on top of the covers and stitch the cover center edges to the spine. Next, lay the left and right pockets on top of the notebook and stitch all the way around the outside edges. Does that make sense to you? Again, really nice job on your notebook! Gary

    Great job! How did you handle the fold with the heavier leather? Seems that folding over 9 oz leather would be difficult to lay flat. Gary

    Giardini Edge Paint On Oil Tan?

    I use Giardini edge paints on many projects and it adheres amazingly well, but I have never tried using it on oil tan. I suggest you test on some samples before applying to your project piece. Gary

    Double Sided Tape

    Just bought this tape on Amazon - 3 rolls for $7 - very sticky and sticks well to leather.
