yet more riggers bag photos

heres the bag...it holds a ton of stuff handy...I sit it next to my chair and along with my candy box of awls I have about all i need to stitch away....everything except the kitchen sink....literally, i need to get up to use the sink to wet the leather as I work from piece to piece.

Riggers bag photos are posted

For everyone waiting on them, I thinks theres one or two of you... I have finally posted up some pictures of my riggers bag set up. They are under the traditional tools...I debated that, but decided that a bag like that makes sense and could be traditional....I know plunbers used them...and like most others stuff I use and love, I do have an antique example of an old timer canvas tool bag. If theres interest I can post photos of that too, but truthfully, the new version I have pictured here is wayyyyy better.
Thanks for your tolerance with my slow posts....sincerely
Tim

heres the canvas riggers bag full of my ...well alot of my leather stuff...

projects and then some

Well...Im real busy these days...I have lots of bags on order, and lots of writting due, but so far its working out...one of my projects is a small leather covered campaign chest. I have an original Im patterning after, but all of the leather from that one is missing...its pretty neat though, its lined with old news paper from 1812.

harness awls

harness awls

These are some harness awls...they work well, but dont taper from the spear point, but rather get wider as they go...thus making a wider slit
the farther you push them...thats a bit less controlled than the other awls and I dont really use them much. They are more suited to harness and coarser work...

Seminars

I have been thinking...I live in a pretty accessable area, and its pretty touristy...they want to make it a little Wisconsin Dells....so lodging etc...is available year round...

Well, on a small scale, I wonder if theres any interest in a bag makin' seminar at my place? I know the gun makers and knife guys all have thier "hammer in" type events...but leather work is usually relagated to a peripheral side class at a multi-class type event.

I wonder if anybody would be interested in a pouch event?
