  1. You may want to try "Dye Gone II" for removing dye from hands. It works great, and still available. - Bill
  2. Looks great, but the problem that I see here is that two of those weights will gradually get lighter and lose effectiveness over time. The others look really great, too. You also triggered a thought - maybe make a weight that is "indented" - sort of like a donut filled in on one side of the hole - that would make a weight that would also be a safer coaster, and might even be good to hold your smaller dye bottles more safely. - Bill
  3. If the leather is worn and not cracked, you might consider condition it and leave it alone. That wear tells a story! Just a though - Bill
  4. I could be wrong, but I believe it is a shoe making tool used for trimming the leather around the sole. - Bill
  5. Look for Arthur Porter on YouTube for bag making tutorials. There are also a number of books available. - Bill
  6. Hmmm. I wasn't aware of this! Might be fascinating to check that out. Thanks. - Bill
  7. Floral carving has been around for centuries. The differences are in how things are laid out, to some extent size, and a number of other factors. Some of it is individual style, some artists combine styles making it all the harder to pigeonhole things. So why pigeonhole them at all! Just as with paintings, styles and such can be hard to distinguish to the untrained eye but eventually it all starts to make sense. This may help - http://toolingtheus.com/ -Bill
  8. Very nice indeed! - Bill
  9. "There's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark out, we're wearing sunglasses and leather bowler hats." "Hit it"
  10. @toprank your website English option isn't working, you may want to check with your webmaster. - Bill
  11. There's actually a lot of truth in that one when that person also has a "work smarter not harder" mindset. - Bill
  12. When I die I want to go nice and quiet in my sleep just like dear old grandpa. Not yelling and screaming like his passengers. - Bill
  13. Well done! - Bill

    Medieval mask

    This mask would look right at home on the set of "Hellraiser". - Bill
