  1. Just recently finished and shipped this bag out to it's new owner to be used and enjoyed. Happy to hear any thoughts. It's W&C dark brown English bridle leather 8-9 ounce, gussets I split down on my old dixon splitter (I really want a bell skiver, it will be my next purchase) It's all hand cut and saddle stitched with dyed burnished and waxed edges, solid brass hardware from Buckleguy.com (love them), leather I ordered from the Hide House in Napa, their customer service is awesome and they're close to me so shipping is super fast. Solid copper rivets. Leather wrapped aluminum reinforcement bar under flap. Not in the pictures is a small luggage strap that goes from the top d-rings around a slide out carry on handle for traveling. My work can also be seen on instagram or facebook as HideGear Detail Album
  2. Saddle stitching. "Dot the i's and cross the t's". https://youtu.be/7e3HC9tuSXA
  3. Having trouble figuring out why my nice white thread discolors as I sew dyed projects. Think I have allowed plenty of drying time for the dye. Help?
  4. Guys, I wanted to give a shout out to Nigel at Armitage Leather, aka @Dangerous Beans. I have been at leather work for a bit now and I have to say his teaching channel is Awesome. I thought I knew how to bevel properly, nope. I thought I knew how to do a lot of things. Nigel brings some really forehead smacking techniques to table. His teaching style is wonderful and his voice is just a joy to listen too. I have spent plenty of money on tooling over the years. Now I am learning how to apply them properly. This channel is worth way more than the cost of admission. 4 bucks pays for the whole seat, but you only need the edge. https://www.armitageleather.com/courses Thanks Nigel.
  5. I’ve been making some stirrup style dice bags recently which require me to sew chrome tanned garment leather or suede to the veg tan strip in the middle. I’ve been using diamond chisels to make my holes in the veg tan, but it doesn’t work well on the softer leathers so I’ve been saddle stitching them together with glover’s needles. I go through the diamond chiseled hole of the veg tan and use the sharp glover’s point to get through the suede etc. Is there a better or easier way to do this? Sewing machine is not an option. Thanks!
  6. Hey guys, I did a video review of a new titanium (not the blade though!) saddlers awl from France. So I thought I would share with the community here. What do you think? Revolutionary or a waste of money? Click the image below to watch.
  7. I have been asked many times to produce a DVD of the skills I use and teach here in the workshop. It is a very good idea, but given the audience I reach is global, the shipping will often cost more than the DVD. Also, it would mean multiple DVD's to get all the skills in. So... I settled on an online tutorial channel on Vimeo, in the long run you will get far more from it. It is still at the early stages but videos are being added frequently, at a rate of 4 a month. The cost is £2:99 a month irrelevant of the quantity of videos on the channel, whether it be 25 or 250, it will always be £2:99. I have a current working list of videos to make of 124, this grows as people ask for specific techniques to be shown. The idea is to look at each technique as a standalone practice piece to be brought together when attempting a project. Up until now, I have shown you how to work through a project whilst not paying enough attention to the specific skills used. This should help with that. Enjoy Nigel Armitage
  8. I have been stitching by hand for over 3 decades. I thought I would share a couple of little tricks that I use. The first pic shows where I mounted an earth magnet, one on each side to keep track of my needles when I am stitching. The second pic shows, (somewhat), the hydraulic table that I used as my base for my stitching poy. It works much the same as an office chair. This happened to come from a boat. Fully extended it is the right height for me to stand while stitching. When collapsed it is short enough to stash under my bench. The last pic is some tools I use when stitching.I use the edger as a thread cutter, able to get very close to the leather surface with this. The pliers are a normal pair of slip joint pliers that I disabled the slip joint so they only operate in the small jaw configuration. The small divot you see on the pliers, ( one on each side), I use as a way to push the needles through the tough spots, such as when backstitching. The little piece of scrap I use to push the needle through the back side of my stash. The hole is a thumb hole and it rests in my palm when working.
  9. This is a sheath I enjoy making and it has proven to be efficient design that stays out of the way of a side arm or a backpack. Comments are welcome. Hoping each of you are doing well. Scott
  10. Hey all, I wanted to provide an update for the leather tool bag work that I am doing. A number of you have provide much appreciated feedback and advise, for which I am quite grateful and indebted. I elected to write up my update as a series of brief posts each attached to an appropriate photo. Due to the file size format of this forum, I am going to link to the Imgur album that I created. Hopefully, this format works well for everyone and remains in keeping with the forum. TOOL BAG UPDATE Best regards, Patrick
  11. Greetings all! I have been searching high and low for the proper name and technique for a two colored saddle stitch (Each hand has a different color). The closest I've come to finding it was in this thread by Martyn: Here's the thread. I'm having trouble figuring out how to start a stitch like this, as a knot would be too thick and dying thread is just a recipe for disaster. Any thoughts or experience would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, and happy New Year! PLW
  12. Hello, This is a project I started a LONG time ago but didn't get back to it until this year -- kinda embarrassing since my wife's initials have changed since I started this when we were dating. Plenty of things to blame such as teaching high school science but excuses aside, I finally started to get back to the craft. Probably helps that I'm looking to make a career change and I'm hopeful that I can make leather work a big part of that change. I'm currently trying to learn about tack and saddlery because there's high demand in my area but doesn't seem to be anyone to supply to that demand. I'm still trying to find someone near-ish Cincinnati, OH, USA to learn from so if you have any leads, please let me know. Anyhow, back to the project and my questions for you: I made the front and back panels and originally intended to use them for a three ring binder with laced edges. I then learned that my wife preferred to have a portfolio similar to my personal portfolio but with stitched edges and pockets/pouches for her pencils, calculator, and phone (she's an actuary so she does a lot of calculating). Also, she really doesn't like pen/pencil loops so the internal snap pouch is what I came up with. What do you think about the coloring and finish, particularly the silhouette on the back panel and fading on the horse? How can I make the transition to a new thread for my saddle stitch less apparent? What do you think of the construction? Is this something you would have used an edge kote on -- I don't have any yet and I'm unfamiliar with its behavior?
  13. I am looking for some used European style pricking irons, 7 stitches/inch and 10 stitches per inch, not too particular on which, and would consider other sizes if the price is right. If you are looking for other tools or leather, perhaps we could work a trade. (I have caimen, ostrich pieces, veg tan, chrome tan, many tools) PM me if you have some you would like to be rid of! YinTx
  14. Hello everyone Here is a recent woman's bag I made using tumbled Horween Essex. The leather is about 6/7oz and slightly spongy. Its sewn at 6 spi (7 tpi) with fil au chinois linen thread; size 432 Fully lined with interior pocket. And a shot of the hide Thanks for looking
  15. I want to cover a cork lid with leather (both flesh and grain sides). I am a rank beginner and the only thing I've figured out is to stitch all around. However, I really want it to be smooth -- for example, like a bicycle seat. How would I do this? Thickness of leather? Thanks in advance for your feedback!
  16. Here is what I have been up to today, working on my saddle stitching. I know, gotta watch my corners!
  17. A custom wallet I made a while ago. The requirement has been to adapt one of my existing designs to just about fitting Dollar notes unfolded. The wallet is 17cm (6.7") long. For the interested, I've used an aniline colored, Italian, full grain, vegetable tanned, shoulder leather that have been drum dyed. Weight is 4.5-5 ounce (1.8-2mm) all the way through, all hardware is nickel plated brass, including the YKK zipper. The thread is artificial Sinew, everything is saddle stitched by hand. I've used a small Vergez Blanchard awl and a fork as stitch marker (not kidding). roughly 5mm stitching or 5.08 spi. Edges are dyed with a permanent marker pen, and burnished with saddle soap and polished with some wax. The only treatment of the leather have been some final wiping with some Carnauba cream. Although not visible in the pictures, there is a third 'hidden' card pocket in between the main body and the zippered coin department. Hopefully the pictures will inspire someone, but don't copy - don't be lazy and a tool. Instead, try to always do things your own way - that is part of the fun! Cheers.
  18. So a friend of mine got his bag stolen so I told him I'd make him one. This is my first attempt at a bag, I'll admit I hadn't thought about how to handle the corners. I have a lovely maul that I forgot at work so I did all the hole pricking with a crappy rubber hammer, hence the junk job with the stitching. Hey, at least it's solid! I know I didn't do the leather justice, but I had fun with it. Oh, and I kinda feel like a jerk for making theblacing and edging green, since my friend is red/green colorblind. >;)
  19. I made an aluminum cribbage board for a friend back in machinist days. Now, in my "leatherworker" days he asked for a case Fun project! All 8/9 oz veg tan with briar brown EcoFlo antique gel, cream Ritza 1.0mm thread, carnauba cream finish. All the best, Tanner @claridge_leather (Instagram)
  20. A new holster with rubberized nylon straps and pull-the-dot snaps. Black pro oil dye, space gray Ritza thread. Thanks for looking!
  21. Here's a new holster with a lizard inlay (from the Springfield Leather scrap bag). It's Fiebing's mahogany oil dye, Ritza 1.0mm cream thread. I was especially trying to keep clean edges and stitching on this one. Always something to improve! All the best, Tanner @claridge_leather (Instagram)
  22. So Windrider's posts on making boxes lit a fire under me, since they coincided with me fiddling around with something at work. When cutting moulding on a miter saw, you end up with triangle shapes. If you get four of them and put them back to back, the rabbet of the moulding ends up pointed out and makes a snazzy lid! This is my first attempt, I happened to have some burgundy latigo scrap and one of the lids that went nice with that color, so I went at it. I'm frankly astounded that it turned out as well as it did, since I completely guessed at the height/angle of the curve for the sides. I cut the edges at an angle (which was a challenge) and saddle stitched them together, then burnished all the edges. The lid pops right in but not so snug that it's a pain to get on and off. Size is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" by 2" tall.
  23. Just a quick video for those asking how I am stitching my leather. Just one of many techniques I have learned in the last year I have been doing leather work. I am using Coats Barbour 18/3 Ecru linen thread. This is a 3.38mm stitching iron making the marks, and using a 35mm Vergez Blanchard Awl. I get a very nice separated angled stitch with this technique. For straight stitches or angled stitches that the thread stays touching, I use different methods. Hopefully the link works. YinTx
  24. Here's my latest little project-- this makes it pretty nice to carry that half pound brick of a multitool. Plus, I can't resist making a sheath or holster for every knife and gun I own (probably like many of you)! Cheers! Tanner
