Good to hear you are getting a sane level of hours, though I bet the wallet appreciated the 60+ weeks you had.

You'd be surprised... I know I got burned on taxes so bad for the one 80 hour week I did that I'll probably never go over 60 ever again. Just not worth it lol...

To be honest, wallet/bills needed it. This weeks looking to be just as crazy (was supposed to cut hours, but when boss has you stay for 11 hours it's not really cutting them...).
HOWEVER, I have been putting an hour here, a couple there as best I can, and am trying to get all work out asap, without sacrificing any quality.

The whole, how to project kind of fell through because it adds a bunch of time to take good pics in progress of stuff. still in my plan book, and it does show some basics of how I am doing Black Beard's rig.

The biggest bummer is now I have money, but no time to spend it. :P

Updates when I can/can stand looking at a computer screen after 11 hours of doing just that.

Sidenote, if anyone wants a refund on their work I have no problems with that. Even if I started cutting and stitching. The time taken has been a lot, so if anyone wants out I'd rather them end up happy (or as happy as can be...) than be upset. if you'd like to discuss this option, shoot me a Pm and we'll go from there.

Have you done a holster for a Redux yet? If so can you direct me to the pictures? If not and it's a project your interested in doing I made a wooden copy of one I could send you. Thanks, Feyd..........

My daily leather search before bed time again...


Yes, I have done a redux one, which is awaiting final approval and clean up, and of course, me to ship it, which makes me sad. It's so pretty

As far as future orders, I'm holding off until I've cleared some work. I took on too much (again :\ ) and combined with a new job it's proving difficult to get stuff done. That said, eventually yes, I'd be more than happy to do one. Wooden copy would need all the raised areas on it (sights, screws, etc) or well marked so I can account for all that.

Ugh ok so for an official word. My hours did NOT go down, they actually have increased. Been pushing the 70 mark the past two weeks and everything is at a standstill. I was told we were supposed to slow down beginning of May, it's now June and I'm working more.

As stated earlier, if someone does not wish to wait, I'll gladly refund your money, as well as add in something for interest. Totally up to the current buyers of course. Just shoot me a pm and I'll do the best I can as quickly as I can.

Update. Been able to get a solid like 2 hours a WEEK in the shop... and that's pushing it. Current orders will still be finished, however I won't be taking on anymore work. I can't even come close to keeping up, and coming home from a 12 hour day, day after day, I'm too worn out to even work on this stuff most of the time.

I may take orders down the road, but until further notice, I'm out. I'll be glad to answer any questions, or maybe, maybe do trades or something down the road, but for now, I gotta call it pause/quits.

Aw take care of yourself man!

I have just a general question. Was looking at my dad's old welding apron, and I'd love to find some leather leather like that, thick and rough. What would I be looking for name wise to find that type?
