Leather project 1 – Coin purse

My first leather project is a coin purse that can be hooked over a belt keeping the change out of your pocket so it does not cause any rips in the pocket lining.

The step by step process is detailed in both the video & the photos below.

Woodturning project #7 – Burning and ebonising

Well this weekend I have been playing with a couple of news items, a blow torch & ebonising spray and the results are below.

They are not too bad for a first attempt but I should have built up the ebony  layers much slower and a lot thinner.

 

Today’s inspiration has come from both Mike Waldt and Martin Saban-Smith both have fantastic videos to go through and gain some inspiration.

 

Woodturning project #4 – A wooden box

This weekend I have had the pleasure of being taught how to turn some wood.

I spent two days with Tom Pockley and have learned so very much that I hope I don’t forget. I guess the best way is to get some more practice in during the week all I need to do is finish work on time so I can play in the garage / wood shop.

This is project number 4 a wooden box from cherry wood, it box is 90 mm high with the lid being 50 mm high.

Woodturning project #3 – A wooden bowl

This weekend I have had the pleasure of being taught how to turn some wood.

I spent two days with Tom Pockley and have learned so very much that I hope I don’t forget. I guess the best way is to get some more practice in during the week all I need to do is finish work on time so I can play in the garage / wood shop.

This is item project 3 for me and I am quite happy with it, I also turned a box but that will be in the next post.
