  1. Thanks Guys, I am using a 2 prong and 6 prong chisel. I have been working on keeping them straight but need to get better!. thanks too for the tips on how best to deal with multiple layers. I did glue my back 2 pieces together prior to punching holes. did the top piece first and then used it as a guide to start the others. I will keep trying! Vee
  2. that is beautiful! I have not tried painting yet, need to learn that skill!
  3. hi all, The bug is getting me. Made a knife sheath for a knife I have had for years. Never made a sheath before and while the friction fit works well I should have make it a 1/4" wider on each side. there is NO excess room. I am not happy with the tooling and my cross stich lines but it looks hand made I guess. I drew this out and designed it myself. it is 3 layers of 9 oz leather. question, How are you guys keeping the back stitch lines straight. I have not figured that out yet. here is a pic:
  4. Thanks guys, I really enjoyed building this and trying to remember how to tool and such. this took 2 full days and now I have a stitching pony on order! I am going to be practicing more and see what else to make.
  5. Hello All, I decided to get back into leather working after 30 years as my son wanted a field quiver. As my first post I thought I would share. Found my old tools and visited Tandy to get some leather and I am proud of my work being away from it for so long. tooling could be sharper and def need to practice on my swivel knife but hey, he is happy! here is a pic.
