    How did they do this technique? I want to duplicate it!

    Could be just a pear shader.

    Leatherman Case

    Those are very nice! Machine stitched? Would you mind showing the back to see how you did the strap?

    How to get this color?

    I like this color combination but I can't figure out how to get the lighter color on the A and the leaf. At first I thought it was just the natural veg tan with a resist or the dye painted to avoid those areas but it's not any color veg tan leather I've had. Mine are all darker and a different shade. I figure it can't be a dye because it's a lighter shade than the veg tan is. It looks like more of an ivory or cream color. Is it an acrylic paint with an antique over the top?

    Finished Sheath for Customer!

    You can be proud of that, looks awesome!
  6. I've been using Barge for some time but tried Weldwood recently and while it seems to work fine I don't think it's any stronger or better than Barge.

    Neat stitching without bended lines

    Could just be the type of leather, too soft.

    Cutting straps in thick leather

    I had some tandy leather sides that had some real thick and hard areas near the ends. It helped to start the cut at desired width with a knife then insert the strap cutter.

    Finishing a belt

    I like tan kote on the belt back after dye and firmly burnish it in with a wood hand tool.

    Saddle Stitching - Looks Good on the Backside

    I just posted this on a different thread... no pun intended: I've watched Armitage youtubes and stitch exactly how he shows but alway get a very pronounced zig zag on the back and a less pronounced almost straight on the front.....and, I'm over it! I guess that' just the way it's going to be. It's neat I can live with it. I used to use a drill press but have switched to chisels to mark the front and an awl to poke through and it looks whole lot neater. I just don' get a real pronounced zig zag on the front.

    Maths equation circle and stamps

    I usually just fit the stamp to whatever circle. I make sure to stop far enough in advance of the end to trial fit the stamp to see if I fudge it tight or a little loose to make it fit. Usually unnoticeable.

    How to keep my ruler from sliding?

    I use strips of silicone tape on metal ruler and square. It seems to stick well to the metal and not the leather.

    Hello from Belgrade

    Kuko si? Dobro work! Ha ha I'm serbian too and still remember some of the language. Both sets of grandparents migrated to the US. Anyway, nice work. I just started leather work myself. Someday I want to travel to Montenegro to see where my grandparents lived.
