    Chris, it is available from our local hardware store. In Kamloops BC Canada at the Rona building supply store. It's about 100 dollars for a 4x8 sheet.

    Thanks Chris, the granite slab is a grave marker that wasn't used.... I purchased it from the local shop, it's about 3.5 or 4 inches thick. The rest of the bench top is made from "area board", some call it "puck board". It's available in different thicknesses, it's basiclly hard plastic. My knife is not damaged by it, not does it cut too deep into it either. I dn't mind using it at all. The cutting table in the middle of the shop is also covered with the same stuff.

    Yes, the splitters comes out and there are other boards with different tools that also fit in that spot. A rounder for one and also a pinking machine as well. I think the magnetic tool holders work well for many things. Clearly not all tools though. It wasn't that expensive to build either. I hired a local fella with some skills and we used birch because it's plentiful around here and looks nice. I like having all the drawers for storage.

    Work bench

    I felt it was time to upload a couple pictures of the bench. It's been finished for years now, was just stumbling around here yesterday and found this post I started a few years ago. Here's what I've come up with.
  5. Thank you Dwight and Cody. I like to looks of the inside pocket. Nice finish to it.
  6. Hey folks, just recently got an request to put a pocket onto new pair of chinks. I've never been asked to do that before and don't know the best way to go about it. Is the pocket best on the inside or outside. I've seen some sew onto the inside of the leg, but don't know how to finish it so it doesn't tear in the cut out. If you have some pictures of how it's best constructed, that would be wonderful and helpful. I'd like to put a flap onto the pocket with snap cover. Your thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance to every. PS, I'll post some pictures of the results after the job is done. Bob

  9. What am I doing wrong? I obviously need help learning to bone properly. This is way too funny, "my boner don't work" I need help..... LOL this belongs in the adults only section...
  10. Often when I finish a new chap order, I use the parts left over to cut coasters. We have a clicker and die for cutting. The die is a circle of 3-3/4 inch diameter. We've made them from veg tan saddle skirting as well and they tool real nice. I would hate to have to cut circles by hand, it would be difficult to make them perfect each and every time. If any of you want I can cut some out and send them in the mail. Send me a message.
  11. Several ways? Only one to my knowledge. Two needles, thread and awl with a handle. I usually work in a clockwise direction, but thats up to you. Oh, i almost forgot, it maybe best to pull the old stitches out first.
  12. Jack, if you have a Cyclone for sale. Whats your price? For the 3 & 16 also?

    Glue

    Do what Ed says exactly..... solvent based contact cement is the best, just let it dry and use two coats.... I use weldwood and have no prlblems glueing anything, with the exception of latigo and oil tanned leather.
