Does anyone here dabble in a bit of leatherwork? If so pictures please! ( kinky bedroom leather excluded )
I decided i needed an inside hobby besides Netflix so I’ve just done my first saddle stitch last night it ain’t much but it’s a start!
@juststarting photos are messed up! Won’t led me upload like usual from my phone
Might want to fix the image, @AusTac. And I would have thought that the bedroom stuff would be the first thing you’d want to see. I guess you’re boring like that.
I made a set of mittens out of some roo skin. They didnt fit the best but were very warm and water snow proof. I just used the sewing machine.
If you hurry up and pull your finger out and get your firearm licence sorted you can start reloading as your inside hobby
My brother in law had a tobacco pouch made from a Roos nutsack, after a while he decided he didn’t like the fur & had a brainwave to shave it for a more “leather look” but once he did he realised it looked way too much like a blokes nutsack so had to bin it
Ive made a couple of them they are really hard to get the balls out especially without damaging the skin. Then they are not as as big as I would have liked. I stretched them out with steel ball bearings that I had for a slingshot a long time ago. That worked well but still a bit on the small side.
His must’ve been from the John Holmes of roos because it was a pretty impressive sized nutsack. It was a long time ago & i could be wrong but i’m sure he used to stuff about half a pouch plus his Tallyhos in it.
I’ve got a roo sack somewhere that I wanted to keep shot in for the .64 BP
Many moons ago I spent some time with our town saddler, he taught me how to sew and other basics. I grew up with horses, both saddle and harness, and have made a fair bit of gear over the years,
made my first saddle when I was 18, still got it although I don’t ride anymore. Here 'tis…
Another one I made for the missus to fit her Arab stallion
Still do a bit, mostly sheaths for the knives that I make.
Leather is good stuff to work with. I dabble a bit with slings and pouches and belts.
Cool things like this? Ammo belts??
A guy in the US, is sending me one of these for my 357 cadet…Lots nicer than the elastic shit on Ebay…
Damn you guys are talented!! Puts me to shame
Some tools i use and stuff I make
Love the Mick Dundee sling mate!! Nice work.
Love your work Jizz…where do you get your supplies, tools etc…??
Wanted a new sheath for this forest scandi, not perfect but turned out usable
That’s a lot nicer than just “usable”.
I dont but I would like to one day…where does one get the tools of the trade??? Horse saddle places??
