    Thanks Jack!

    Thanks John its a little bit of both. I use a product called Pro Carv in my water. It gives many of the properties of traditionally cased leather to your project with out the wait. So nowadays the only time I still actually case something is like those tapaderos where there was a lot of shaping to do too.

    Thanks Dwight and thanks for the opportunity to share this with everyone.

    Thanks everyone.

    Great Tutorial, Dave. I like how you show the tools up close, as it's always hard to know exactly what tool someone is talking about when they are giving instructions. The up-close pics takes the guesswork out of it.

    I learned more from this thread than I have in a long time.

    Dave,

    Thank you so much for this. I have been wanted to try your style of carry and stitch for some time. Frankly, I plan on copying you a fair few times from this thread to learn your craft. I will always credit you and never sell these items. When I get your style down in a way I am comfortable with - I will then incorporate it into my craft.

    You are a true artist and I love your work. In fact, I just sent a customer to you last week who asked for Chaps. I hope they order.

    Thank you for being a mentor of mine without ever taking me on as a student.

    I do have a few questions:

    1) You dab your Antiquing recipe into the cut and carved sections of your middle with a foam brush? You don't have any overrun on to the pristine areas?

    2) You use a deck cleaner? What product is this and what does it remove?

    3) You leave a very generous gap around the finger guard for a welt and a stitch. Why not bring this closer? I am sure this was wisdom hard won over time - but I wanted to know your reasoning so that I may learn sir.
