I'm sitting here with the master leather crafter Sandy Morrissey, he spending the night in my home on our way to Pop's hammer in tommorow. He brought me 3 sheathes that he finished. A word of warning, NO DRULLING ON YOUR KEY BOARD....:D.
What a Master! I'm truly honored to call him my friend.

Fabulous work, I can only dream, ahwell, maybe in about 50 years ;)

Sandy those are truly exquisite. Nuff said!

Martyn it just takes time, patience, and doing it. Practice really does make perfect. Well almost perfect - I'm sure like me Sandy is his own worst critic - He KNOWS every bobble intimately even when other folks don't notice.

Again huzzah Old Man Leather.

Respectfully yours-

GEORGIA !!! Go Georgia--- Go Dawgs! And Chuck, don't you think that "antique" has a better ring than "Old" ? I am trying to salvage a little dignity here. Yuk-- Yuk. From "The antique leather man" Sandy P.S.---that doesn't ring like a bell either, maybe we should try "Mature" ?

Perhaps the line from "Out of Africa" would fit best -
"Cranky, Demanding old $@&!!"

That's what Linda calls me anyway. She also says I'm not mature just ripe!

Remember it ain't the years it's the mileage and I know your odometer has turned over quite a few times. The fingers are still working though. I just spent the last three hours wielding a swivel knife so mine are all cramped into claws.

Good to hear from you mi amigo.
