  1. Thanks. Initially he wanted the letters to stand out a lot. So I didn't have the scrollwork about the letters. Then he saw one I did with it this way and liked it better so that's what I did haha. I think it looks better this way myself Thanks plink.
  2. Thanks! I spent longer drawing the pattern than tooling it but it was a fun project
  3. Been a while for me since I've posted anything. Here's a sling I did for an uncle. I drew the pattern up myself too. That was a chore. Lots of room for improvement but I'm still mostly happy with how it came out. My bench seating arrangement isn't comfortable and I think I rushed it because of that. Anywho, thanks for looking. Stats: leather was 8/10 oz veg tan that was sent to me as part of a tandy kit. I used indelible resist and indelible dark brown wax antique to antique the piece.

    Nice to see ya again! Good stuff as usual
  5. Thanks, I had some examples from a workshop with Jim that I used for the finger carving. Still needs work but overall it's an improvement for me. And inspired me to go about drawing my own patterns now. Thanks! Its already been swiped by my dad haha. I just need to send it to him lol.

  7. Thanks! Much appreciated.
  8. It fits nicely in a shirt pocket actually. It isn't as this as you would think. But I would agree. I didn't have any 2/3 oz to line with or I would have used that haha. Give it a shot with your own design. It is fun
  9. I did some tooling the other day and it's not the best. But I decided to make a project out of it anyway. A small spiral pocket not book cover. I drew the pattern and carved it and added figer carving on the inside for fun. Always open to comment and critique. I hope you like it. Stats: 4/5 oz wickett Craig russet for body lining and pocket. Finished with dark brown wax antique by indelible leather finishes and edges done with their burnishing compound. Hand stitched with.8mm Tig thread Havana color.

    Looks great. Nice swivel knife work
  11. Very nice as always. And I still love your style.
  12. Stitching looks great to me. As for cutting soft stretchy leather, I find a rotary cutter works nice. More downward pressure like chopping rather than lateral slicing style cut keeps it from stretching and being cut wrong. At least for me. I'm sure a rediculously sharp knife would work all the same too with enough pressure on the straight edge to keep it in place. I have problems cutting softer and thinner pieces still but the rotary cutter helps me out.
  13. Sweet! I like the stone and blue color a lot
