  1. This is a cover I made for my xbolt SS Stalker 30-06 sprg with custom stain colour. cheers A.J
  2. I Made this cover of a Veg-tan leather for my Browning X-bolt SS Stalker 30-06 SPRG Rifle. I also started a new project for my Savage Mark II F .22 LR rifle. cheera.
  3. I crafted this Veg-tan cover for the buttstock of my X-Bolt SS Stalker 30-06 SPRG rifle. I am in the process of making different one for my savage Mark II F .22 Rifle.
  4. Thanks rob I have two accounts one is SAM76 and the other is AJ2018 just for clarification. cheer.
  5. I use Solidworks Expert 3D/2D software for leather pattern modeling then touch it up with Photoshop after then export the results to PDF using adobe . but the procedure i use is very complex to novice person, so i recommend something simpler even though solidworks output an extremely precise measurements. if you give it the right commands, but i don't recommend it for even intermediate users as certain features are extremely complex to achieve, and might put too much strains on you if you don't know what you doing. for example here is one design image i did in solidworks, but still need some more stitching. good luck with the image , indeed it was nice design. cheers, A.J2018
  6. some more pictures , still have to stitch the pad that is why i still have stitches on the holes. this cover has a different beautiful color finish as you see. but the color mix ratio is hard to get without having paint experience. what do you think guys, lets see what you got and lets learn from each others. cheers, A.J2018
  7. Hi Gary, here is a pic, the dye I am using is Fiebing alcohols based dye. Notice the ring marks left around the design. What is causing that ? Can it be fixed or should I cut a new piece. cheers, A.J
  8. Does anyone know why faded dye marks are left around my design ? , I knifed the design then I dyed it with alcohol based dye and when it dried out it showed the faded marks around the design, It looks like an offset marks from the design , did this happen to anyone before ? What causes it so I can fix the problem in later projects . Thanks
  9. does anyone know where can i get the best grommets setter tool for 5mm grommet, reason i am planing to use grommet over eyelets is because eyelets might leave scar on the buttstock as they don't come out clean after pressing them in, but instead i found grommets are safer to use. i am looking to get a clean fully round grommets after pressing it so it wont leave a scar on the stock when pulling the lace through. thanks for your input everyone. cheers, A.J
  10. Hi Gary, not sure if you got my last feedback about your question, because I don't see it here now, but i will repeat, the procedure to convert the computer screen sketch you see above from 3D to 2D is indeed a very long and complex procedure, but for me as a certified solideworks expert (passed the expert exam) i had to go through all the steps and come up with the 2D template. I would say drafting it from ground zero using solidworks takes alot of skills and math but i had to post the computer pic above to display the public how do i do it. its nice to see other share what they have and exchange data. cheers, A.J
  11. Design for the left side of the Savage Mark II F .22 rifle stock. come on guys, lets see what you have, its nice to share information. enjoy. cheers, AJ
