    Burnishing Chromexcel Edge

    Hello Everyone, I know this has been asked before but I could only find burnishing veg tan edges here in the search bar. I am using chromexcel and tried using Fiebing's Acrylic Dye, but hated it. So now I'm back to square one, and instead sanded the edges down -> applied water -> heated the edge with a jerry rigged tool I made up (gets up to about 350-450 Farenheit) -> apply beeswax -> heat again -> beeswax -> heat second time. My question is, will the beeswax eventually fail, and will the burnish come apart in a few years, or does this technique actually last a very long time? I'm making nato watch straps and obviously can't test each method for 10 years, I want your input and years of experience if you would be so kind! Thank you for your time and thoughts. PS. The chromexcel is roughly 2-3 oz. EDIT: Gum Trag, thoughts, process of putting on tanned leather such as chromexcel?

  9. Hello Everyone, I am very new both here and to leatherworking. I was tasked with making a leather tote bag for my sister for christmas. It was the only thing she requested so I felt obligated to take a crack at my first bag. I used: 5oz Dublin Horween Chromexcel 8oz Buffalo for the straps Copper rivets 1mm Cigar Tiger thread all stitches hand punched and saddle stitched There was quite the learning curve with the designing and assembly of this bag, I already know of a few things (mostly surrounding order of operatioins) that I will do different. Any advise is welcome since I hope to improve to the level of the things I see here! Edit: These are the only pictures I have from the build process, I have asked my sister for some pictures of it after a few weeks of use but nothing yet.
  10. Sewed from the outside in for the first time on a bifold. I normally sew from the inside out since going around pockets is easier that way. Happy with the outside stitching but need to fix up the inside on my next one.

    Gluing Chromexcel

    So I just got my hands on a side of Horween Chromexcel. While it is very nice to work with, the first challenge I have run into is that it doesn't seem to glue very well. I have always used Weldwood and never had any issues, but it just didn't want to stick to this CXL. The surface is kind of slick, but I have glued other chrome tanned leathers before. I tried roughing up the grain side. It didn't help much, but I probably didn't rough it up enough, I just went over it lightly with sandpaper. Anyone had this problem? What kind of glue are you using on CXL?
  12. So I've just gotten one of each of the Horween leathers I plan on offering 6 Different Leathers! Any one what to guess which one will be the most popular? The Red-Burgundy-Brown CXL you tend to see a lot- anyone know what to call it? Tan Predator Black (believe the Tannage is "Austin) Orange Predator Orignal Workboot Brown Austin Pecan CXL Let me know your thoughts! Also what do you think of "simplifying" the names of the leathers for customers? I think calling them easier names would be good for marketing especially for the Tan and Orange Predator, Austin Pecan, and Workboot Brown. Maybe?: Tan Predator as "Distressed Brown" Orange Predator as "Dark Tan" and Austin Pecan as "Natural or Tan Chromexcel" and Workboot Brown as "Red-Brown" or "Russet". Also not sure what to call the Burgundy Red CXL- I've seen it as just Brown, but I'm not sure? Think I'll be able to sell a few?
  13. Hi all, recently cranked out my first bifold and some long wallets in Burgundy CXL and Hermann Oak Veg tan, let me know what you think! Thanks for looking, Kevin
  14. Hi all! This is my personal card case, Horween Chromexcel (burgundy) outer and natural veg tan inner. Let me know what you all think! Thanks!
  15. I woke up at 3 am the other night and decided to work on something I have never tried before. I created the design and pattern in Illustrator and then got to work. When I finished at 6:30 am, this was the product. I'm very happy with how it turned out for it being my first time trying an inlay. There are a few spots where the stitching is too close for the inlay vs. the outside. The leather is 2 - 3 oz Horween Natural Horsehide Chromexcel and the denim is a USA Chambray Swift 12 oz indigo raw denim. Thread is natural 4 ply from Royalwood. All of it his handmade except for the burnishing in which I used a cocobolo burnishing bit. Any critiques or recommendations for when I do more inlays in the future? I have some more denim, duck canvas and wool to try doing inlays with.
