I like it.  "Fun" interiors are interesting and I'll guarantee it will get comments when the owner opens it.  Nice execution too.

yes it will definitely get some looks. i cant to see it when the wax wears off the ghost camo and the leather starts to patina.

I'm still a noob.  Could you explain what the uniters heatable edge paint is and how it works and why I would use that instead of just edge Kote?

Is the customer trying to hide the the fact that he has money in his wallet, so he does not have to get the next round in.

Nice work by the way.

So with heatable edge paint youre able to work, smooth and move the paint around after its dried with the use of a fileteuse or in my case i use the side of my edge creaser heated up with a candle.

admittedly i have very limited experience with edge kote because early on i learned that higher end makers use edge paint to finish there products.

i used some edge kote maybe once on the first or second project and got really bad results so i never used it again.

Okay cool, thanks for the explanation.  I'll have to do some more research but its still a hobby and my bar is still pretty low.  :P

The wallet looks great and you should have a happy customer. As to the precision of the build, a super wow. Beautiful!

yes he was very happy and thank you for you compliment.

i strive to make my products as nice as possible. its detrimental to my pocket at times lol because of the amount of time i spend on the fit and finish.

But hopefully it will pay off. if not it makes me feel better knowing i did my best.

take care

thank you !

several layers of uniters paint (3 or 4) sanded in between with 600 and 800 grit then finished with 1200 grit sandpaper.

then i apply a layer of wax and smooth with the side of my warmed up edge creaser then buff with canvas.
