  1. I'm alittle late on posting my PIF from rdb, but that job thing kept getting in the way. I received an excellent tooled pad with three perfect techniques for me to try. He has some great staining styles. It is bordered with arrowhead stamping that he has displayed on his excellent belt tutorial (which I am going to try). He says the leaf carving is free handed. Makes me realize I have work to do. I am using it as my mousepad for eternal inspiration. Thanks rdb for a really nice piece of work. Hope this pix thing works.
  2. Good to hear from you as well. Hope the girls still enjoy them. This weekend I hope to show mine from rdb. Some really good work. Take care my friend.
  3. I have a Singer 29K60 that needs alot of parts. Anyone know where I can get parts or a contact about having it rebuilt. I really would like to rebuild it myself, since I used to make a living servicing heavy fab equipment. Challenges can be fun.
  4. Hey Johanna, One of my projects for this year was a site. If you could get me the where fors, what nots, and how muchs, I would be interested. I already have a domain name.
  5. Sorry all, I guess I have the problem of figuring out this upload of pix thing. Do not worry about the time. Quality takes time and patience brings quality. I wish I could figure out how to download pix. But alas, I will avail.
  6. Here Robert, I will try to help with the pix. Hope this works. Tell your girls thanks, and if they want I will see how I can help them. I have spent alot of time helping FFA and Youth Rodeo groups and really enjoy seeing young folks grow into entrapenuaral individuals.
  7. Thanks everyone. I have made my mind up to spend more time right now on carving. Everything I've done up to this point has been stamping.
  8. I have been in stealth mode long enough. This forum is just what the doctor ordered. I am really impressed with the talent I have seen here. My name is Jim. I live in the Great State of Texas on the Gulf Coast. My careers include being a past small buissness owner, farrier, aviation mechanic, and presently work in the oil, gas and chemical inspection industry. Leather has been an ongoing interest for years. Only in the past year or so I have been pursuing the passion. I really like the holsters, belts, and sadlles I seen here and have found alot of inspiration from the members of this forum. Alot to learn, but alot of fun. (Carving right now is my nemisis). Thank you Leatherworks for this opportunity.
  9. I totally agree. If I don't miss my guess, alot of people are waking up from their rum dumb sleep and hearing the wake up call. But one thing is for sure, OUR TROOPS ROCK! Jim
  10. Thanks Robert. After looking at everyone else's work I kind of felt alittle wimpy. But that's why I joined this forum, so I can learn and broaden my horizens with Real Leather Eagles like you and many others. Hope your girls enjoy them and give them a "God Bless" from me to their father for his service to a Great Country! Jim Boots
  11. I am new to the forum but have been visiting for awhile. This group is truely inspiring. Count me in on the PIF and include me in the international shippers. Looks like I will be in this group for a long time. 1bootscootin (Real name Jim)
