  1. I got a medium size stingray today from a friend. I cut a small section off the end and man is it tough. How do you finish the edges on them? This is totally out of my wheelhouse. Please post any projects you have done with stingray I need some ideas lol.
  2. You have inspired me to make a wallet for my wife with a full harness on it. Good job it looks great.
  3. Funny you should mention that. I just made this for my wife. She drives/trains percherons I had a mirror cut to fit and put it in. She hasn't decided where to hang it yet so its living in the spare room with the dogs beds. ETA: I didn't make the collar I found it at at a garage sale here in town. Maybe one day lol
  4. Thanks for the kind words. You guys and all the information on this forum have been extremely helpful.
  5. Spent the weekend making this notebook cover for my mom. I've only been at leather work a few months. This is my 4th tooled project. The vine work got away from me a bit on the stump on the top flower I salvaged it best I could. My knife work and beveling need more practice but I'm thrilled with how it came out. What do you guys think?
  6. I'm having issues resizing the pictures to post. Sorry for the poor quality I'm having to screen shot the actual picture to post them. I need to figure out how to do it properly.
  7. It's a pattern I saw on makers leather supplies YouTube channel. I really liked it and I intend to use it again on the back of a bible cover I'm making for my mom for mother's day. The 2 stamps are Barry King seashell fillers both large and small. The stamps are spendy but I had money sitting in my PayPal so I figured this was as good a time as any to spend it. I cut a dimond pattern with the swivle knife and used the stamps on the corners of the diamonds. I didn't experiment first I intended for the dimond pattern to be more visible but I made them to small. I do like how it turned out though but next time I'll make the diamonds a quarter inch larger. You can see it better before I used the antique.
  8. Thank you all for the kind words. You guys on this forum have helped me a lot. I've spent hours reading old posts here to try and improve. I wish I would have discovered this hobby years ago. I'm going to be making a few more of these for family gifts, I'm thinking about adding a snap closure to my pattern. I haven't messed with setting snaps or rivets yet so that will be fun. Thanks again!
  9. I made this for her birthday coming up. I started doing lether work a few months ago when I needed a knife sheath and a hunting pouch for my flintlock. A few weeks and about $600 in tools and leather ( having a tandy store 5 minutes from my work is dangerous lol). This is my 3rd tooled project and I'm happy how it turned out.
