  1. That looks awesome. nice clean design. I've yet to get into knife sheath making. I hope mine turns out half as good as yours.
  2. So I'm new to leather for the most part. I have a year or so under my belt. My boss asked me to make him a saddle horn bag and holster. I whipped this up. If I had it to do over I'd make the area where it attaches to the saddle horn different. I got concerned about the pocket and was going to put a snapped lid on it. Then I thought I should have put something to hold bullets. So I changed up and made it where it would hold bullets on the holster side. The holster also comes off and can be worn on a belt. My work isn't as clean, nice and neat like y'alls here. I'm working to improve. I do know it's strong and should hold up to plenty of abuse.
  3. Hey thanks for the reply. I will give it a try.
  4. I'm new to leather work. I've got a year or so under my belt. I'm coming along okay but still have a lot of things to learn. I made a leather briefcase a while back. I used oil tanned leather. I didn't line it with anything. Anytime I use it the dye on it contaminates my paperwork. The briefcase works well for me and I'd like to be able to have a solution so I could use it. Hindsight I should have lined it with some pigskin or thin leather that wont bleed. It would be a nightmare to try and do that now. What would anyone suggest for this? another question. I've still have some of this leather. What glue should I use to line this with thin leather? Thanks in advance. Z
  5. My first time using softer tempered leather. It was designed on the fly.
  6. Incredible work. One day I might get to that level. I suspect in around 7-10 years of hard work.
  7. Thanks for the kind words. Yes. I've only been at since last February. I did put together a kit in middle school decades ago. I've been reading and watching tons of tutorials.
  8. Yes it is. I have the 3 Motoko bags patterns. I have yet to make the other two. Thanks for the kind words. I modified it a bit. I made a whiskey flask and eye glass holder out of moulded leather. Thanks.
  9. I'm relatively new to leather craft. Here's a couple of bags I've made.
  10. I'm in Lawrenceville now. I recently moved up from Albany so I was living down in your neck of the woods. Thanks for the welcome.
  11. Hello everyone. I'm kind of a newbie. I had some leather working classes in middle school when i lived in Wyoming for a couple of years. I'm just now getting back into it all. I'm working on a cool project I got a pattern from etsy. I hope to learn a lot from you all. Z
