That's really beautiful, Dave. I can see why your wife likes it. Double thumbs-ups to this.

Regarding the inside pockets, did you make them pleated to expand like cargo pockets or are they more flat against the inner sides?

Thanks Marshal.

The pockets are flat inside. She wanted them tight so her cellphone and whatnot doesn't fall out. The purse body itself does "accordion" open for easy entry and expansion for holding more junk.

That sounds well thought out. Very nice work, there. 8)

My son came to me and asked me if I would make something to cover the blade of his hatchet. He is 7 years old and I thought it would be a good project for us to do...... so we did. First one I have ever made. It is pretty crude. We whipped it together in about 45 min or so. He loves it.

By the way, No, he don't get to just use it by himself with no supervision.  ;)

That's really nice Rube. Out of curiosity, is that stump the remains of a cherry tree?

It is a mimosa tree stump that fell. After it fell I cut it down some more and now it has oak tree growing out of the mimosa stump. This spring I may take it all the way down unless the oak trees really start coming in good.

Thanks. That is all we were looking for. I may end up going back later and making him a nicer one to fit better but this one is effective and stays in place well. Turned out good enough considering I never made one and didn't even look at photos to have an idea in my head of how they are supposed to go.

Now I have looked at a few and if I make a new one in the future I will incorporate a few of those ideas.

A friend needed a pancake for his Sig-M18 with an optical site. This is the mock-up. I forgot to take pictures of the finished product.

That looks like a good design. Your friend should be pleased with that.

I made a belt for my wife's 70th birthday (tomorrow). This isn't her only gift but it's the only leather one. The buckle is solid silver with a stainless tang and attach bolt.

What thoughtful gift! The cool thing will be is when someone asks  "where did you get that beautiful belt" and she proudly answers "my husband made it".

Here's a percussion capper I made as a prize for our monthly postal shoot over on americanlongrifles.org.  It is made from 10 -12 oz backed with 8 to 10 oz.  The holes along the edge were drilled on a drill press using a #13 drill bit (IIRC).  These are super cappers for single shot rifle or pistol, they hang upside down so don't get wet and don't lose caps.  Simply slip the cap over the nipple, and pull the capper away sideways.  The cap comes free through the slit in the capper's edge.

That's a very cool design. It's easy to see how well they would work. Thanks for the pics.

Does the leather loosen some after a lot of use?
