    First sheath of this type

    Unusual that you placed a Star stamp in the middle of the "arrowhead" formed by the basket weave.

    "Must have" stamps?

    Kinda depends on what type of tooling you wanna do. Bevelers are used for every stamping, tooling or carving. Steep slope smooth are the most useful. Textured add nice dimension. If you get any kind of figure stamp or basket weave, you will need at least one camo or border stamp If you plan on doing any Sheridan style, you will need the basic 7 set: Bevel, camo, pear, seeder, background, crescent, veiner. Most Sheridan also incorporates a mule foot. Some people develop a collector or hoarder mentality. For instance I have at least 18 different basket weave stamps. Straight, slanted, X-small, small, medium, large, X-large, traditional, tri-weave, celtic, star, etc. Ebay can feed that beast only too well. At last count I have over 300 different stamps.

    Woolly mammoth stamp

    Have never seen a wholly mammoth 3D stamp. I have seen T-Rex (8414), Pterodactyl (8426), and Brontosaurus (8415). There was an elephant (8467). All of these stamps area out of production but can be found on Ebay from time to time.

    Fiskar's hatchet cover

    Seems the lacing is in danger of being cut by the edge of the blade. Did you put is an extra layer of leather along the side to protect the lacing from the edge?

    First Time Tooling

    The leather was too wet and therefore mushy. The leather should return to "normal" color after wetting before you tool.

    New Molded Falconry Hood Protector And Matching Hood.

    The case is obviously wet molded. Do you tool the case while on the mold? or do you have some other neat trick?
  10. Reminds me a bit of a 3d stamp

    Big Ugly Nasty Ugly Tool Roll ;)

    Sure is ugly. But it seems to work.

    Dollar Store Polly Mallet

    Any idea what they weigh? Heavy mallets make stamping/tooling easier.

    Looks good. Leather may have been a bit too wet for the middle two.
  14. Agreed that your art background shows through. A little bit of chatter on the beveler but for a first project, that is astounding.
