  1. The skinning of the fish is probably beyond your control. It would be nice to see entire skins with the sturgeon's top row of scutes intact. A different species but close enough for an example.
  2. I haven't started it. It's 104* right now with more of the same for tomorrow. My shop is climate controlled. The climate controls how hot or cold it is inside. Too hot already and summer is just starting.
  3. It's not the natives so much as the Californians that migrate up here. They pretty much ruin everything they touch and are the real locusts. The thing I don't get is if California is so great why didn't they stay there instead of bringing everything that's wrong with California here with them? 40 years ago the wetside was a pretty nice place to live. If the east side ever secedes from the rest of Washington (you would be right to) I'm moving there. I'm in for a flyswatter. Rodney

    Egyptian Leather sells Tiger thread in small amounts on Etsy. The owner is a great guy, he's always been helpful to me. If you prefer twisted thread instead of braided, I recommend Maine thread. You can buy it fairly cheaply from BuckleGuy.com and it's made here in the USA.
  5. Totally agree on the older machinery. Unless you spend serious money the new stuff doesn't come close. Great job on the pony! I'm thinking about a better one for myself too.
  6. !'m surprised no one has answered this. I don't have any answers either but this will at least bump you back to the top.
  7. If you're limiting yourself to garment weight leather you might get away with using a domestic machine. The other limits you're going to run into would be thread, needle and stitch length sizes. As much as I like vintage domestic machines (I have around 30 in my collection), you're better off long term buying a machine designed for leather.
  8. Hi Otzi, I would like to get 1 of the better hides. Your link isn't currently working, at least not for me. Can you let me know price w/shipping to USA zip code 98531? Thanks! Rodney
  9. I didn't really make any leather gifts but I did buy a double shoulder and a few starter tools for the neighbor kid for Christmas.
