  • How did you find leatherworker.net?
    Stumbled on it while searching for info on some of my old tools
  1. I'm stealing that idea. I'm also working in a small space, so your shelf unit will help me to get my tools organized. I love the way that you tilted the tool block to make it easier to see the stamps. /dwight
  2. Just for grins, here are some of the things that I did back before my hiatus. Maybe I'll be able to get back to this kind of stuff again. This was the panel on a briefcase that I used for many years. The briefcase eventually fell apart, but I liked the panel (even though it got fairly well stained over the years), so I kept it. Maybe I'll figure out something else to do with it some day. This is the clock that's in my office. I did several of these back then for family and friends, and I still see some of them being used today. This was a photo frame for an old-time photo my first wife and I did when we were first married. I lost her to cancer in 2010, but I'll keep this photo forever.
  3. Yeah, when I was signing up I tried for the username 'Dwight'. The site told me I couldn't have it. There aren't a whole lot of us out there. /dwight
  4. Hello all and Greetings from Meridian Idaho. I'm not completely new to leather work - I used to do a fair amount of leather tooling (mostly belts, wallets, and purses for friends and family), but until recently it had been something like 30 years since I last swung a mallet. However even back then I wouldn't consider myself to be any type of expert. Now that I've retired I've decided to get back into it again. So far I've really only done a practice round to get used to the idea of tooling, and made myself a wallet from a Tandy kit. I'm not completely happy with the wallet (it's a bit thicker than I would have liked and next time I'll use a different style of letters), but it will do the job for now. One of the things that I want to work on is leather cases. I ride with the Patriot Guard Riders to stand flag lines at the funerals of veterans and I'm thinking about making a leather flag case. I have Volume 1 of the Stohlman book on cases, and I'm thinking of a case based on the fishing rod case in that book. However I'll probably start with the Dice Cup described in the book just for the practice. I look forward to getting (and maybe eventually offering) advice and feedback on hopefully many leather projects. /dwight
