  1. Thanks for the cleaning suggestions! I was able to take a couple pictures of mine now. It was still in the original plastic wrapping and no marks on it, so we're pretty sure it's never been used. Unfortunately, no grain numbers on the box, so thanks for the tip on taking it to a cabinet maker.
  2. My dad found an old whetstone in his parents' house and brought it home. It says "Norton Alundum Oilstone" on the box and looks like this (not my picture, but it's definitely the same stone). From what little info I could find, it seems it may have been manufactured somewhere between 1910-1935? It's in pretty good shape overall, just need a bit of a wash. Any chance anyone can tell me more about it? Is it worth cleaning up a bit and keeping for sharpening purposes?
  3. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Much appreciated! I'll try a couple things and see how it turns out.
  4. I'd like to design my own laptop bag and have a vague idea of what it should end up looking like, but I'm incredibly bad at math, even if it's double- or triple-checked, so things end up too small or crooked. Happily all I've wasted so far are paper bags and scrap leather. Anyone have any tips that might help?
  5. Thank you for sharing! I'm downloading everything I can.
  6. Thanks for posting this template. The end result looks nice and the directions are easy to follow. I got a different template out of a Stohlman book, so I'm going to try making both.

    Hi everyone! I actually joined over a year ago, but was just lurking the forums 'til now and I'm hoping to be more active now. As to interests in crafting, most of mine aren't very practical or useful in everyday life--masks, armor (human and animal), things you might find at a Renaissance Festival. I would eventually like to learn to make bags and shoes. So far, the only semi-interesting things I've done are a pair of bracers and a jerkin that needs re-stitching and probably a bit of refitting. Back to lurking I go.
