  1. Oh hell, send me your mistake pieces I'll pay for them. LOL. No, really I will. And by the way what stamps do you use for your basketweave?
  2. Hi there Yin, first I have to say, Beautiful work. I am not even going to ask about the leaf because it's ten years of experience beyond me. But I need to know what I am doing wrong with basketweave. I am putting in a picture that frankly I am embarrassed to put in public. First, it's on 2/3 oz leather, I know it's very thin but it's a handle wrap for a hiking stick and I just can't leave it plain. How do I keep the lines so straight? You literally don't have a crooked line in this entire cover! HOW? Thanks Mark

  4. I'll get a list of sizes together and post it.. Thanks
  5. My stock of machine threads have to go. My machine died and being unemployed now is forcing me to clear out a bunch of my leather working tools, supplies and leather. Any one interested send me an offer.
  6. I am putting together a large order of Sajou Lin Cable waxed thread. If anyone needs a certain color let me know and I'll include it the order. When I get them I will be listing them on either ebay or etsy..
  7. I shop around online, like jo Ann fabrics, fabrics.com and others. If I see a pattern I like I buy a few yards and try it out. It doesn’t have to be canvas.
  8. Contact cement will bleed thru. I tried every type of glue and spray adhesive there is before I found what works. The heavy duty iron on bond works best. If an edge comes loose you just re heat with an iron and it’s stuck.
  9. Well, I finished this piece, and it's the first I'm going to sell. A simple journal cover is done with 3/4oz embossed veg tan and lined with printed lightweight canvas. The hard part was getting the dye the right way. Tried to get it to look like a real alligator belly with the lighter in the middle.
  10. You know after looking at it closely for about forever it feels like, I have to say your tooling control is amazing. The texture on the face and around the mouth is great!
  11. Here are some shots comparing Crimson 3.85, Seiwa #4 and cheap ebay 4mm
  12. I'm going to post some new shots with a ruler.
  13. Here are some larger irons and just in case someone out there is confused I threw in some lacing irons. When I get a minute I'm going to thread these pieces all with the same size thread to show the difference in hole size to thread. . Nice comparison. Thx.
  14. Okay, so maybe I'm not so dumb.. LOL
