  3. From our friend Jim Linnell: The last instructional video that Robb Barr ever did was the Great Horned Owl. He passed away shortly after it was recorded. That carving is proudly displayed at Elktracks Studio and the video of that class is available once again. You can find it at https://elktracksstudio.com/.../great-horned-owl-robb-barr
  4. Free Sample from Orion Calf Have you asked for your sample yet? This is an interesting leather because it's said to accept dye better than traditionally tanned leather. I'm curious to know what you folks think of it.
  5. Just give me the name you want. If it's not in use, you can have it.
  6. Someone pointed this out to me, and now I know what it is and why it's so cheap. Makes the explanation easy now. Thanks guys. I didn't know the keywords to search.

  8. I made it a subforum of this one, and it's public. https://leatherworker.net/forum/forum/224-political-posts/
  9. The US held elections last week, and the results aren't final. People all over the world have strong opinions about our president, and leatherworkers experiencing cognitive dissonance are seeking their peers for discussions. That's fine, but this is a leatherwork forum, and some people come here to get away from all the hoopla. We've had some posts that are controversial, and we hate censorship, but we don't want to keep flogging our members with political posts. SO, I'm going to create a new section in the "off topic" area where you can post about politics. If you want to participate or ignore, the choice is up to you. We're not going to censor it but we will not allow personal attacks or running with scissors. You might want to ignore that section if your skin isn't thick. I'm going to reveal and move the political posts in a few minutes. Suggestions welcome. ~J
  10. I used to manage a Tandy store in the 90s. We were open 54 hours a week and expected to run the store, teach classes and ship orders. I discovered it could take me an hour to sell a bag of rivets and a setter, and then I had to teach the customer how to do it. This was necessary retail service, but didn't help my numbers and made me look bad to corporate. So I made sure the coffee was fresh, and I let my regulars sit at the cutting table and work on their projects and tell fish tales. When I was busy, I could yell "Hey, Mike, will you show this gentlemen how to set a rivet?" My guys were great. Sometimes when I'd get back to the table they had convinced the customer to max out his credit card on shiny new tools. That was possible because the customers had confidence they were getting what they needed, and that people would help them learn as they went along. So, inadvertently, that's how this forum was born. I wanted it to be friendly like the back table, and give people the confidence to try the project, or a place to show off just how awesome their project turned out. If some rivets are swapped or hides are traded, all the better. If friendships are made, mentorships happen or we establish world peace through coordinated hammer taps, I will not have lived in vain. ~J
  11. I damaged the ad server during the server migration. I tried to fix it, but it wasn't cooperative, so I uninstalled it and made a new one. People ask me how they can help the forum? Participation makes it more fun for everybody and is the most important thing you can do. Share what worked, what didn't, and what you made. And if the forum has helped you, please click the ads, and please tell our sponsors when you place your order that you appreciate them supporting the forum. Let them know they are making a difference in your day. Thank you! ~J
  12. We are on the new server now. Waiting for DNS to get around the world. A bit of content from 7/21-22 may be lost but this elephant appears to be moved.
  13. I arranged to the new server, and am downloading the stuff I need now. We're going to be offline for a day or two, but when we come back, we'll be faster and slicker than before. I will put up an announcement of what to expect as soon as I have an idea. It is perfectly safe to override the security warnings the browsers are showing. There is nothing on this site that can do anything to your computer. Thank you everyone for your good wishes. I need everyone to put on their tinfoil hat and cross their fingers as soon as we go offline. ~J
  14. I'm working on this issue right now. The site is secure, but the protocol it is using is outdated, and that's why you're getting the error. We've reached the point where we need to move to a new server. I'll be scheduling that soon and I'll put a note up when we can expect downtime. In the meantime, the best I can suggest is to use a browser like Chrome, or do like Chuck and tell Edge it's okay and don't bug you again. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. We know getting errors is annoying. ~J
