  1. @Railrider1920, here's that quick tutorial I promised you. I hope it helps you on your journey. If you have ANY questions, feel free to ask. Mike
  2. I’ve been making a bunch of these totes lately. They’re a lot of fun to build, especially turning them right side out. The Raven was dyed red and block dyed black. I was initially wanting everything but the bird black. Due to some low spots in the leather it came out blotchy. Call it a happy accident! The thistle was hand painted. Veg tan flaps, bridle leather straps, pebble grain black leathers from Tandy for the body.
  3. Here's the front section, with an Angelus Burgundy background.
  4. After a few prototypes and studies I finally finished a complete, full-sized mask. Not completely satisfied with how poorly eco-flo super sheene performed blocking the brown hi-lite color stain in the white areas despite having applied 5 coats. Next time I'll try resolene.
  5. FINALLY got this present finished, but I messed it up so much that I told my guy that I'll make him a better one based off the same pattern and color. (turns out he wants a stag and owl on it anyway) I probably went about making this thing ass-backwards, but in the end it turned out alright. In any case, it holds the knife tight and looks a hell of a lot more harmonious with it than the cheapo nylon sheath that came with it. I underestimated how close I had made the knotwork to the edge, and just how much tooling it would expand the leather so I ended up stitching over the very tip of the knotwork at the bottom. I'm not so pleased with how the tooling itself came out, either, but I'm still progressing with it.
  6. Some of my project's I've made this week. No experience before I bought the starter kit on a bit of a whim. I'm hooked is about all I can say. My minds full of idea's for projects, Knife sheaths and rifle scabbards, Shooting bags, Slings,belts and hat bands. So much to make. I'm trying to figure out what kind of Gear I can make for my Motocross gear. Art on my Boots?:D Some rounds with Celtic Knot desgins. My "heratige belt" with Shamrocks, Celtic Knots and a Scottish Thistle. Part of my family's Native American, I'm a big fan of that style art, So I made a Hawk, Orka and Chinook Salmon. The Animals/Tree was done just drawing the design. I had to use a template on the Knots. The Native art's gotten quite a bit of attention from my family, I'm going to make a bunch of Keychains for Gifts this Christmas. Should Keep me busy for the winter down time.
  7. Here are a couple photos of the Celtic knotwork belt I just finished. Shown with it is a belt pouch I also made, though that was a while ago.
  8. Hello again, here is another of the projects I did for myself over the holiday break. I've been wanting to create an alternative for carrying some of my everyday items like phone, wallet, keys, earbuds, etc. that replaces the full pack I usually carry. I've tried this out and about a couple of times now and I am pleased with it. Let me know what you think. :-)
  9. Greetings everyone! My name is Paul Alfred, and I am a new member here. I took an interest in leatherworking from my father, who used to run a taxidermy shop. Often he would have extra buckskin left over and would use it to make wallets, pouches, bags, backpacks, etc. I loved watching him make these things, and I enjoyed "helping" (often it was less than helpful, I'm sure). Years later, while I was in the US Air Force, I found out that a mentor of mine was also a saddler. When I mentioned my interest in leatherworking he began taking me to his shop and showing me the ropes. I enjoyed working with him, and with the leather, and I learned much over the next three years before deployments, and life, took me away to far and distant places. I have an interest in two types of leatherworking primarily. First is Medieval and Celtic leatherworking, for use at SCA and Renaissance Festival events. I have no intention of making leather armor (cool stuff, but not my thing). Instead, I enjoy making more practical things; bags, pouches, belts, book covers, etc. I also enjoy drawing Celtic knotwork, and many of my bits of artwork are drawn for leatherworking projects. My second interest in leatherworking is for reenacting, be it Celtic/Viking (or possibly Roman) items, or American Civil War and Texas Frontier items. I am starting to learn how to do classic Western leatherwork tooling, and hope to be able to create pieces for SASS members as well (I have a few friends in the SASS who are kindly asking me to learn this, lol). As of yet, I do not have a website. I have one under construction, though it will be at least a few weeks before it is up. I do have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/alfredleatherworks), a Google+ (https://plus.google.com/u/1/113615960789211711186/posts), and a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/AlfredLworks). Once the website is up I'll post it here for y'all to take a look at. Also, I thought I'd post a couple pictures of me, just for fun.
  10. Hello everyone! I'm still fairly new to the forum and I am enjoying seeing what everyone else is working on, or has done in the past. At the moment I am working on a commission from an old Air Force buddy of mine, a Celtic knotwork belt with a dragon head at the ends of the two knots. This is really version "2.0" of this belt as the first one I made was much simpler and not nearly as nice of a finished product. The first belt had the same knotwork design, minus the dragon heads, the edges were never burnished, and I used Ecoflow Kova Colors instead of dye or stain. Over the years the Kova Colors have cracked a bit, the rough edges of the belt have frayed, and overall I am not satisfied with how it has held up. Thankfully my friend who I made it for still loves it. This time around I am going to burnish the edges of the belt, I added the dragon heads to the design, and I am coloring it using Ecoflow Water Stain. From my research, the Ecoflow Water Stain is a quality product that will last through the wear and tear of regular usage. Also, the additions to the knotwork design, though a pain to draw up at first, were actually very easy to tool in and the look is a hundred times better in my opinion. The first photo is of the original belt that I made, while the others are of the current belt project, the "2.0 version".
  11. I set out to make a strap for my black SG and this is what I came up with…….. It pained me to dye it black as the carving/tooling detail almost disappeared in the black. I had my mind set on black with white stitching, the studs were an after thought. I have tried the studs on a few cuffs and was going to add them to a strap sooner or later. My daughter told me it is very cool and asked where I got the patern for the studs. I told her it was just what came to me when I started placing them in the open areas, she was impressed. This is the first time I have done a wide border on a strap and happy with the out come. This is a cut to length strap that is meant for one guitar and is really nice without the extra clutter of length adjustment detail. I used 9-10 oz leather with 3-4oz deertan cow for lining, this makes for a substantial strap. The strap locks can be a challenge to get on as you run out of neck on the collar that goes through the strap button hole. I had my machinist friend make me a punch to compress the leather at the mounting area, makes it just thin enough to get the nut on to tighten it down. you can see the compressed leather in the first couple pics. I know the celtic and studs are a different mix, but I think being black it makes it ok. It looks very sharp on the guitar. Thanks for looking Allan
  12. Hi y'all! I'm a medieval geek from Montréal with a passion for costuming,swordfight and more recently leatherworking. I've always been fascinated with leather armors and all the intricate techniques that are implied un their making. In the past month, I finally geared up with the essential. I am now crafting pieces of armor and celtic-themed accessories of my own. Anybody else in the area? Anyhow, I can't wait tout get criticism from you people! By the way, I'm looking for good armor patterns, anybody has some good websites that could help In my quest for the most epic armor In the universe?
  13. Sona


    So this is a comission I got a little crazy about as I just ruined it totally bye trying to harden it....-.- (and I made a test piece... -.-) So actually it had to be made twice. The second time I skipped the hardening stuff, just soaked it a bit and baked it on a lower temperature so it would get stiffer, but not hardened (and not ruined) All in all I am quite happy how it turned out due to the fact that this is my first attempt on celtic ornaments (others than just celtic knotwork). It is for a larp-sax, so it is not that thin. But anyway... hope you like it
  14. Here is a new belt by Taurus Custom Motorcycle Seat Covers. Fully handmade. Any critique is welcomed.
  15. Hey all...figured here was about as good as any place to post my first piece of leatherwork... Got into this craft about 2 months ago, just in time for the SO to buy me stuff for Xmas...finally got around to finishing the first project - a simple celtic-patterned belt... Here's a pic from an album of photos I took... Aside from not being very good at it, I had no real issue with the tooling (aside from a few mistakes).. The dye was a real PITA tho - Tandy's water-based...the purple didn't want to adhere to all my piece, and after I resisted with super-sheen, the black wouldn't take properly either (I was v. careful with resist!); it's almost like parts of the leather, especially the parts in-between the spirals that I'd backgrounded, didn't want to dye...the dye wouldn't soak in, but just sat on the surface. Maybe I got oil on it from my hands or something. Anyway, it didn't look great, so I dug out the acrylics and gave it a good coat of black, then 3 coats of super sheen and it looks fine now... Then I had trouble with the snaps going on....the 2 backs went on OK, then one of the female caps simply wouldn't - wasted 3 snaps hammering it in till it would sit... OK, so this is turning into a novel. Sorry.
  16. This was done for a friend who is ex military, designed to be worn on the right side but as you can see the blade is pointing forward, this was done at my friends request as this is how he wore and used his knife when in the forces.
