    Very cool. Going to take a shot at also.

    Key Fob

    I am using some "found" leather that is gosh been around for 15 years. Funny I did not notice the cracking till I took the pics. I want to use this leather up though. So I am trying to slather on a bunch of neetsfoot oil before any hard bending. I like it, but maybe not politically correct these days. OH well............

    Gun Leather & stuff

    Both great. I like the second one. Simple but effective design.

    Photos with my new light box

    I bought one as well and really like it. I am still playing around with camera settings to try to get it optimized.

    Key Fob

    Just finished this from a pattern from Fischer Workshops. He has great content on You Tube and really nice patterns and templates.
  6. I bought some of the thread similar to the Amazon post as above. I make mainly small pouches and knife sheaths. The stuff works perfectly fine in my opinion.

    Dye before burnishing?

    This is the same method I use. Always seems like good results. I like the final with beeswax, it softens and blends the color of the edges in my opinion.

    Which needles for hand stitching

    Started also using the JJ 002 and what a huge difference. I too made the mistake at first of buying the JJ #2 size!

    leather stamping tools, price vs quality

    My opinion is that the Tandy pro tools are really quite nice and at the current sale price they are a real bargain.
  12. Thanks for the comments Brian. I am still having a heck of a time with the basket weave. Keeping straight and consistent depth ect. But this attempt was better then most! Will leave a little more edge width next time. I have seem the camo stamp done on this before. But actually I forgot about it.
  13. Tried something different with this one:

    New Knife Sheath

    Yes some people might/could use it for a thigh tie. This sheath has a dangler carry so I guess if one was concerned about being stealthy a thigh tie could be employed. Truthfully for me for the most part, I just like the way it looks.
