I have a "job job" and do this part time. My grandmother was a hobby leather worker and introduced me to sheridan carving in the 60s when I was a kid. At 10 years old its hard to get interested. When I turned 60, I was Digging thru old boxes of tools that were left to me I found an old Dixon head knife, Dixon Plough guage, assorted swivel knives and some stamps that were still in good condition. I have added to my lot of tools, a little at a time. There is always something to learn and I am amazed at the talent in this field. ITs a very soothing hobby and its really fun too!
