    Very, VERY nice!!
  2. Common injector-type blades work well in the wooden strap cutter. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Taconic-Shave-Injector-Razor-Blades/dp/B07VQPFK68/ref=asc_df_B07VQPFK68?tag=bngsmtphsnus-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=79920869053527&hvnetw=s&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=m&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583520395582267&psc=1
  3. Very nice work! Try medium or dark brown. It’ll make a big difference. You’re right - the mahogany is too light.
  4. Thank you, and yes - LOTS of stitching. Makes for strong & tough fingertips. lol. The patch is from an actual glove, but not one of my own old ones - although I have plenty. I’ve only had the heart to dismantle one of those and it was too “well loved” to use on this bag. Maybe on a wallet or coaster someday? Thanks to all for the kind words - it really means a lot coming from the folks on here!

  6. Thank you very much! It’s Horween baseball glove (light color) from The Tannery Row (https://www.thetanneryrow.com/all-leather/horween-x-baseball-glove) and a really nice “2 for $99” sale side from Makers Leather Supply that I ordered along with the pattern for the bag. I watched Aaron Heizer’s videos on making the bag at least 3 times before I started it. Lots of hours hand stitching. Kind of a knockoff on this:
