    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.

    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

    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.

    Well done
  10. Very nice as always. And I still love your style.
  11. 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.
  12. Sweet! I like the stone and blue color a lot

    Ah yeah. ,Zippers aren't too hard really. Just this one was for some reason. I made it just a tad short which made it difficult to get in place. But it was already my second time doing the zipper on it so, ok made it work haha

    Bible cover

    It taught me a thing or two. The hardest part was getting that zipper gusset right. And it's still a tad short I think. But it works so, the next one will be better haha.
