  1. Hello everyone, i have a couple of questions. I buy years before raw leather for carving. I am a beginner. I want to make a journal. The thickness is 4-5 mm. I know for journal i must use under 4 mm. But i have this leather here and hope to make a good work with that. But is really stiff. Okay i know for 4-5 mm, it's normal that is stiff. But i think, the years that i have this huge piece it make it stiffer. I don't know what to do first. Should a make it more flexible/soften and than to carve or first carve and than make it flexible (i think i have this piece since 2010). I have fear too, that the leather can break later, after finish my project and use it. The Journal, should be 6 cm high. I want to prepare to make it more possible, or you say, sorry girl, your project fails sooner or later with this thickness of the leather. Sorry for my english. But i try my best.
  2. First attempt at carving a dog. My daughter was happy with it. Back to more practicing.

  4. This is a book cover for a journal for my sister. She is a big fan of the Mandalorian and I put some of the characters from the show on the cover. I hope to finish it soon for her birthday.
  5. I made this notebook cover for my local cattle farmer I deal with. He had worn out one from a maker from somewhere out west from years ago, he was very happy to get another one. The lighting was different when I took the second photo but the first one is the correct color of stain.
  6. Made this for one of my son in laws for his lawn service.
  7. My First leather projects that didn't included a baseball glove! Been re-lacing and breaking in gloves for years, decided to try my hand at tooling and absolutely love it! The Journal was the first tooling project and holster was the first sewing project! I also made a baseball glove "pounding pad" with molded foam blocks inside, just couldn't stay away from the gloves. Bonus Cattle Brand popping through the dye on latest learning project.
  8. Howdy guys and gals. One of my friends asked me to make this journal for his Christmas gift to his girlfriend. The leather is 8/9 oz. European single bend from Tandy. Let me know what you think. Critique and comments are always welcome. (Note the screwdriver petal lifter in the second pic. I got the idea from YinTx in his post.)
  9. Christmas time again already, and instead of doing the gift card thing, decided to make simple journal covers for each of my direct reports (there’s four, so I need to stitch quickly!). This was the prototype; fits a Moleskine Cahier journal (approx 9 x 14 cm), with room for a couple of cards on the left hand side. Trying to use up my scrap leather, this one is tumbled Horween Excel, with some scrap split (I think) for the journal pocket. Stitched using 3.0mm KS irons and 0.6mm Tiger thread.
  10. Hey, guys! Here is a recent product from my shop. A friend asked me to make him a journal with a custom design. Let me know what you think! -Ryan
  11. This is a journal cover I made as a gift for my sisters birthday. I used common over the counter acrylic paint from walmart (because that is what I had on hand at the time). Sealed with Satin Sheen, and the image seems to be holding up well. Interested to see what it will look like as it ages. The two issues I have with this one is the pen holder! I realized I just hate the design and am going to do something different on the next one. Also, a tooth on my stitching fork bent, which caused some a funky stitching line on the final product. Going to look for some better quality tools here shortly. Thanks for looking.
  12. I'm going to bind carved leather journals. I just need to know does anybody have suggestions about what type of paper to use, and where to buy it from. They will be a little shorter than your traditional Moleskine notebook but about the same width, idk if that matters. I was going to maybe just use printer paper and trim it to size but idk if maybe I should be using something nicer since they're handmade and all (if you think it's fine to use printer paper let me know though!) Also, if anybody knows of any good tutorials for different binding methods that would also be nice (I already know a couple but I'm always looking for different options). I will not be doing any super involved/advanced bindings though, I'm mostly just interested in the kind where you sew the paper into the spine with waxed thread.
  13. With so much rain up here I was able to get some bench time in and got this journal cover done. Flip down clips to hold the books or papers into the cover.
  14. Has anyone received the March/April issue of Leathers Crafters & Saddlers Journal yet ? Or know when they send them out ? There is an article I can't wait to read !
  15. I recently my wife asked me to make a wedding guestbook for my daughter's wedding. She didn't give me much lead time so I pushed some things a little hard. It is 5/6 oz veg tan except for pockets in front cover that is 3 oz veg tan that was quite soft which caused me some problems in stitching and edging. It is dyed Fiebrings British Tan. I had to re glue the edge of the 3 oz leather after stitching as it pulled up in some spots I think I got it down pretty good. The tooling on the back is not quite symmetrical. I'm still saddle stitching everything. Let me know what you think. Here are a couple more photos.
  16. I'm not sure this would be "showing off" after seeing much of the things produced by people in this forum, but here's my latest completed project. My daughters are big Harry Potter fans and I wanted to make them something out of leather for Christmas, as I've just gotten into this and enjoy it immensely. I came across the Midori Traveler's Notebook, which is nothing more than a piece of leather with a couple of elastic cords holding in small paper notebooks and keeping it closed. That led me to other notebook covers people had made and I thought that would make for a nice Christmas present, so I decided to make them Harry Potter themed notebook covers. I ordered a couple of Harry Potter sew-on patches (1 for Gryffindor and 1 for Ravenclaw...they had this "sorting hat" app that tests you and sorts you into your school houses...don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about), and I intended to adhere these patches to the covers. However, once I was done with the notebook covers, I just couldn't do it. They can use these things for almost forever and I didn't want some Harry Potter patch messing up the front. So, we bought a couple of Harry Potter wand pens to go with them and called it good. They're made with thin veg tan leather, stained and lined with suede.
  17. Just completed this journal. I really had fun with this design, but the next one I want to get more detail on the birds. Thanks for looking.
  18. Haven't posted in a while. Day job getting in my way. ha. Anyway, a journal cover for a customer birthday gift. 4oz veg and pig skin liner. Machine stitched. Nothing too fancy. Just trying to keep mistakes to a minimum. Pics didn't turn out too great. Some blue reflections from somewhere. Comments welcome. Thanks, Eddie
  19. Journal cover is 4 oz veg tanned finished with antique mahogany, with airbrushed tan kote and acrylic resoline and then machine stitched. Koozie is 4 oz veg tanned with an attempt at an airbrushed sunburst finish. hand stitched the vertical seam. that was a pain. Fairly pleased with out come. Thanks Eddie
  20. Finished up this journal for a client as a gift to her manager at work. I love making these things! Very happy with the colors on this one!
  21. I've got the opportunity to get a great deal on some back issues of the Leather Crafter's Journal and was wondering if anyone knew which issues contained Pete Gorrell's saddle making articles. I think they started in May of 1999, but how many issues was the series in, and were they in order one right after another? Thanks so much! Jamie
  22. Hi all, I'm just getting started in leatherwork and would like some advice. I have specific things that I want to learn to make in leatherwork and don't know which one to start with. My goal is to make all of the luggage for my family which will include duffles, backpacks, and briefcases as well as leather journals with wrap closures, and wallets. I will be needing the luggage in 3 months or so. Which piece would you advise that I start with and which to progress to next? Anything else you think I should know would be great to hear too! Thanks, Ben
  23. Anybody have any sketchbook or journal patterns to share? Just courious how everyone is doing them. I can't find any good patterns to go with and I'm looking for some help! Please share if you have any! Thanks!
