After much thinking, I decided to bust out my Barry King Geometric tool for the center design. The border tools are both Barnes -Hacbarth. The veiner is an older Barry King tool. Now, I have to cut out the small cavity above the area were the badge will go and on to the liner.

Here is a new toy added to my collection. Chuck Smith Tools just put on the market an updated version for sale. This little baby has a lever action which is controlled by a spring that will reset it after each action. It also has a spring adjustment for spacing of holes. This particular unit came from an owner/user. It only came with a 3/32" blade but it adjustable for other sizes. I am still cleaning it up, but I am excited to actually see it in action against leather.

I have slowly unpacking my leather stuff after rebuilding my work bench. After working on a couple of swivel knife blades, I decided to replenish my key chain stock.
Things are still a bit busy, but I have some project ideas on the list. I hope to start them as soon as I can make a bit more room to work.
I hope everyone's weekend is going well.
