  1. Wapiti-boy for win, again! Now I wish I had some of those... Jeff
  2. Nice work, again! Attached is a pic of my pancake knife...
  3. Enjoy! Yes, they're beasts. Sometimes you need a beast. Jeff
  4. Very dramatic carving on those sheaths. Nice job. Very even backgrounding, too! Jeff
  5. Lucky GF! That flap is fantastic, great impact against the chocolate.
  6. Heck, they don't always need a hole in a fence. I delivered a couple of dental chairs to Folsom in the '70's. Brought them in with a Chevy van. The boxes were plenty big enough to lay two or three cons in each. The guards lifted the hood, which was fairly tiny, took off the hub caps, checked the glove box, mirrored under the chassis, but never looked in the boxes, either coming in or going out! They had a nice old inmate help move the boxes into the clinic. I asked a guard what he was in for, they said he murdered his family, cut up the bodies and buried them in his back yard. Nicest old grandpa kinda guy you would ever want to meet.
  7. Ah, the mistakes I've made! I did a beautiful sheath for a hatchet, perfect basketweave...decided to put my initial on it. Upside down. Okay, I didn't really decide to put my initial upside down, that part was a no-charge bonus. I did show my trophy wife the pic of the pen line on your piece, though...she looked like I'd described a root canal, or maybe kidney stones. I feel your pain! Jeff
  8. Ah, but what about a stingray Ranger belt? From what I've heard, that stuff is not that easy to sew. Give the client the advert from Thailand, he can see if they'd make him a Ranger belt out the stingray for $250.
  9. Ya'll are gonna have to point out those mistakes you mentioned!!! Exceptional work, as usual. I'm glad you told us who it was for, my first impression was, "where is he going to sit"? Although, you're kinda a skinny dude, too. Jeff
  10. Great first effort on both the holster and the sheath. I'm guessing you learned a LOT on the first sheath. I'd suggest taking what you've learned, and do another identical one, implementing your new-found knowledge and experience. You'll be amazed at the improvement! The knife is rockin', too. Jeff
  11. I will second what Hildebrand said. I've done a few revolver holsters from that book.
  12. Well, Frodo, here's your problem, you're short a room! I've got various presses on two benches in the basement, so had to move the leather shop to a spare bedroom. Now, that's full, and I'm out of rooms! Actually, I've got more rooms, but I've been told by someone in authority that ain't happenin'. What is that mini rifle on the wall? Jeff
  13. Jeff, FYI Square cancelled my account because I had a firearms "related" company. Apparently holsters and training are sins. The other Jeff
