  1. As fredk mentioned a work apron is a personal item and its design can relate directly to how you like to perform your work and what you'll actually be doing. Do you want something to simply protect your clothing or do you like to have pockets and such to have tools at the ready? Simple or complex make it fit your needs. Adam Savage has an interesting video about making an apron that you can find on YouTube. Also, Terrick from Chartermade has a free pattern on his website and a video about making one :
  2. I made some yesterday to try this method out. Worked well for me. Rolling on a slightly rough surface gave me the best result. I did try my marble slab first... was a more effort and not so great results. That prompted me to go into the shed and grab an extra garden paver stone - that did the trick. Thanks again to the OP for sharing.
  3. Are you able to provide the Rhino thread in .8 thickness?
  4. It's also available on Tony's website in the freebies section for a limited time: https://www.leather-patterns.com/freestuff
  5. Thanks for the heads up about this book. It will be an excellent addition to my library.
  6. Nice work! What did you use for dye? I really like the color.
  7. You could register your new business name as a DBA with your state. Paul’s Leather doing business as (DBA) “Super Fine Handbag Boutique”. DBA registration isn’t usually expensive and would allow you to use your new name as a business name instead of a just a product name. Check with your state for their rules about registering and operating under DBA’s. If your idea becomes successful then you can always formalize it with its own business structure, trademarks, etc.. Good Luck!
  8. Awesome looking Roorkhee chair. Nice work!
  9. After you install the software, the first time you start the program there is a box on the right hand side that tells you how to remove that limitation. But the program won’t do this automatically for you. You will have to manually delete the files for the “professional add-on” that are located in the “plugins” folder in the QCAD directory where it was installed on your computer. Sounds harder to do than it actually is. By removing those files the software then becomes the community version.
