  1. I think it's missing a beer can holder but other than that, fantastic work!

    Are you going to use a peg board?

    Kind of depends on what you want to do. If this is part of a press I would go with something thicker, maybe over an inch or two, but if its just a backing for the chisels than I would think 3/8 would be plenty and I'm sure the 25" is more than enough. My board is scrap from a broken cutting board and is small enough to tuck away in a short shelf. I'm sure others here will also provide more experiences and insights.

    Hi I've a small kitchen table that I've been working on since the beginning and often wished I could stand over my projects with a tall stool. Definitely go with the taller version. As for a cutting mat you will want HPDE : https://www.tapplastics.com/custom-cut-to-size-plastic-sheets/hdpe-sheets lots of other factories to choose from, too.
  5. I see beautiful work here and each time I get humbled by the craftsmanship that I see. Yours, in particular, stands out. Very well done! Please post more!
  6. I recently filled an office floor with furniture. For the brainstorming for space utilization, we used grid paper to define the space (walls, doors, etc) Then we got the dimensions of the office desk, cabinets, etc and cut them out to same scaled dimensions and then were able to easily move things around. You could do the same here. Just a thought.

    I'll drink to that!
  8. Could you share the thickness size? I wanted to know for wet forming a container I want to make (taking your idea but making kind of a cup/dish, kind of like a really small valet) I attempted it could use an improvement.
  9. well, maybe the analogy of the salesman at the door may not be the best but I was more pointing out how I don't answer solicitations no matter if its online or at the door.
  10. I understand why some people may feel this is inappropriate but at the same time I'm not sure why this is such a big deal. I am treating this like the salesman who comes to my door. I don't answer it. He isn't making anyone give. If you want to, you can. If you don't want to, just move on. No need to be outraged. ~JL
  11. I like the art work and admire, too, anyone who can put such detailed finesse onto leather. I've always painted my colors before I put on a resist and antique. Not sure if that is the right order/process but figured it kept the paint/dye from rubbing off so easily? Just curious.
  12. Yes, so very nice and elegant. Do you use Herman Oak leather?
  13. Boy, that would be something I would be interested in for $1200. Missouri is a bit of drive for me, though.
