  1. It's done! Next on the list: a set of coasters for my sweet wife, and a replacement camera case for my son's antique Minolta SRT201. This was a fun project. It took so long because it's a hobby, not a job. I envy those of you who can turn around projects faster than this. I did find two serious design flaws. The three folds? gussets? (the places where it bends) are all the same 2-inch width. I should have made the inner one 1.5, the middle one 2.5, and the outer one 3.5 inches. I thought the 2 inches would be more than adequate for the tools inside. Related to that, I need to rethink the closure. I had been planning on using a simple Prusik knot to attach a 12-inch thong to the flap, and then wrapping the thong around a concho in the foreground of the waterfall. Now I don't know if I really want to do that. So for now, I've tied it shut with a bootlace. Got any advice for me? Some things I like about the design: The inner panels are removable and interchangeable. I'm going to make a second panel for stamping tools, to replace either the handled tools panel or the inner pouch. And if I decide to trade leatherwork for another hobby, I can design brand-new panels. The lacing looks so retro! I love it! My next project will be sewn, but I love the old-style look of this double-loop lacing. The carving and coloring is *chef's kiss*. After a hiatus of more than 30 years, I've still got it. But now I need to get serious about brushing up on Western Floral. Outside and inside One-third closed. This panel is hidden when it's fully closed. Front, back, and side when closed Tied shut with a bootlace I carved this little piece to match the base of the waterfall. I was going to color it to match, and cut out a circle in the right place, so I could use it as a concho . . .
  2. I started on this project before Christmas. I knew it would take me a while to finish it, and it's not finished yet. Consider this a progress report. I figured that if I tell you all about it, you will hold my feet to the fire and make sure it gets done someday. It's the outside of a triple-fold tool pouch. The design is two scenes from Rocky Mountain National Park, a lot of Colorado wildflowers, and some basketweave, all held together by some vinework which I wouldn't exactly call Western Floral, but it leans in that direction. You've seen a photo of the wild roses on the flap before. Every blossom is from a photograph, either one I took or one I swiped from the Web. The first panel (sorry, the photos are out of order and I can't fix it) is a collection of some of my favorite Rocky Mountain wildflowers. Starting at one o'clock, and going clockwise, I have: Common western wallflower Indian paintbrush Forget-me-nots (they are tucked into several little corners) Wild strawberry Heartleaf arnica Blue flax White geranium Wild geranium Potentilla or cinquefoil Aspen daisies above the heartleaf arnica Jacob's Ladder to the left of the aspen daisies Wild iris to the left of Jacob's Ladder The second panel is a tryptich, with basketweave on the left and right, and Ouzel Falls in the center. The third panel will be finished last. It's Longs Peak and the Keyboard of the Winds, framed by columbine on the left and larkspur on the right. You may recognize the mountains from the Colorado state quarter. It's difficult to keep the moisture content consistent on this huge piece of leather, especially in the dry Colorado winter. You will notice differences in the burnishing from spot to spot. Feedback is welcome. I can't go back and change anything, but I can make improvements going forward, and I can use your advice in future projects. EDITED TO ADD: I hate doing scrolls. I always messed them up when I was a kid. I don't know what possessed me to include six (SIX?!) scrolls in the vines, but there they are. I would appreciate pointers to resources on doing scrolls.
  3. I was gonna wait until this panel of the pouch was all finished but I'm so tickled, pleased, and gruntled with how well the basketweave turned out, that I had to post this picture tonight. It ain't perfect, but I like the way it looks. What do you think? Should the border stamp go all the way around the frame? Even around the scrolls and the tips of the small leaves? You can see that I'm still having trouble with my scrolls. I did the one on the right first, and everything was okay until I went a little Edward Scissorhands with the, um, "decorative" cuts. I pretty well mangled it. Too bad you can't erase boo-boos on leather. But I learned my lesson, and used a much lighter touch with the one on the left.
  4. Was working with Rex Jerome for several weeks to come up with a guitar strap, belt, wallet, phone case, etc. Rex had an accident and is unable to continue for an undetermined period. He recommended trying to find someone here. I can supply some pics , ideas, etc. to get us started. If any interest contact me here to start. littlereed
  5. Here’s a small folding knife sheath I just finished up. I tried to resist the basket weave and sorta accomplished it. Rivet is more for looks than anything else. Turned out ok. Comment/criticism welcome!
  6. I made this a few weeks ago and just got around to posting pics. I made it for myself so I didn't scrutinize everything and there are a few less than perfect things. I modeled it after Don Gonzalez's he makes in his video. I think I'd like a one part cover more but to be fair, I didn't follow his design to the letter and used 5/6 oz for the cover and spine and 3/4 oz for the liners and book holder/business card holder. I used a craftaid for the basketweave layout and then cut it in by hand and beveled with a checked beveler and did a border with some Craftool pro border tool (can supply the # if anyone is interested. I screwed up two of the 4 corners though :/ Please comment as you see fit.
  7. Here are some chink chaps I made for two of my sisters. I think they turned out pretty well and they are getting a lot of use. Let me know what you think. Critique is always welcome. Thanks for viewing! Ryan
  8. Couldn't find a backgammon board locally, so figured I'd just make one.
  9. Made this guitar strap thinking I would gild the treble clef. After several failed attempts I just resorted to painting it with Jacquard gold acrylic paint. Still looks good, but I wish the gilding would have worked... I don't have a guitar, so no 'action pics'.
  10. Looking to buy a basket weave tool that's larger than the standard Tandy size but not silly money
  11. Hi all. Thought I would share a recent project of mine. This is a briefcase I finished not too long ago. Comments welcome!
  12. Here is a sheath I made this past weekend. This is my 5th project I have made. I used a scrap leather piece that I got in a remnant bag. It holds my Buck 110
  13. I've got this old felt hat. Probably over 20 years old. It's been great, it's my fave, but the band, now that I've made a couple of other bands for other hats, is looking a little bland. So I made one with a design I've used for two belts. That didn't do it for me, so I sucked it up and tried my hand at the arrowhead basketweave design. It worked! I did watch a couple of videos online, first, though. That helped a lot. In the first pic, the original boring band, in the middle the interim one, and on the hat, the final product. I'm happy with it, the next one will be better, now that I know what to watch for when stamping.
  14. I hope this isn't a redundant question but I have been researching for two days and can't find answer. What determines the direction (down to the right or down to the left) of the basketweave? Or is there only one correct direction? Hope this question makes sense to someone out there and thank in advance for any advice. Paul
  15. Here's one I finished a few weeks ago. It is a leather notebook designed to hold an 8 1/2 x 11 refillable notepad. The front is a full floral design and the back has an inset pictorial carving of a mountain scene surrounded by basketweave stamping. The outer leather and interior pocket are Herman Oak, with a pigskin lining. The outer edge is laced with Whiskey colored Kangaroo lace from Packer in Australia. I made this as an entry in the World Leather Debut show in Sheridan, WY this year. It didn't place but it did score pretty well and I'm happy with it, though I do see a lot of room for improvement. I made it for my personal use so the customer is satisfied. The notebook was antiqued and in the pictures it looks pretty uneven, but most of that is just not setting up very good lighting when I took the pictures. Overall it came out pretty even color. Thanks, Bob
  16. Anyone know what stamp this is and where I can get it? I love how it gives a chevron look but I can't seem to track it down.
  17. This is for a 5x7 spiral notebook cover. Standard basketweave, craftaid corners, some custom lettering, and neats-foot for color. I like how the color turned out. Hope it doesnt fade too much. Thanks for looking! Eddie
  18. Hello all! Been working away at home, just thought I'd post some work I've done for friends and family ordered for Christmas. Comments, critiques and advice are welcom. My Grandmother asked me to make a belt for her husband, and gave no further instruction, other than it had to be no wider than an inch and a quarter. I'm still new to leatherwork so I decided to go for a plain finish of nothing but neatsfoot oil. Don't know how it will hold up, if anything goes wrong I'll just have another project on my hands. : ) This is a closeup of *ahem* a tractor, with a little bit of doodly stuff behind it. The rest has a basketweave pattern and his initials, HM are at the tip. I finished the edge with gum trag. This one is for a friends' brother. I treated it with vinegaroon and after the rinse cycle, tooled it the next day. Does anyone have advice for tooling/vinegaroon? I thought about tooling first and rooning later, but I can't see how soaking tooled leather would be a good idea. I just find that the leather is a little more difficult to tool than normal after the vinegaroon process. He wanted an arrowhead pattern with his brother's name centered on the back. I finished this one with neatsfoot as well. I read hidepounder's PDF(thanks for that!) on finishing edges and tried to adhere to his method as best I could with what I had. As I said I appreciate all comments and advice! God bless, and have a Merry Christmas!
  19. Here's a couple of shots of a sheath I knocked out for a customers 8" Bowie knife yesterday. Hand sewn with waxed linen. Although, these were made before the edges were burnished and it got its topcoat of 50/50 resolene. Hope you like! Bro.Tim
  20. This is the second holster and gun belt I made. It was time consuming but fun.
