    Purchased a length of Basswood (imp USA) at the nearest Mega to make a strop for sharpening my carving and leathercraft tools ... no wonder they use this beautiful timber for decoy making etc ... it has a lovely scent ... I used veg tan leather ... flesh side on one side, finished side on the other ...

    I have now made three sets of the lead and collar ... latest and hopefully the final prototype for the Bottle Opener Pouch, MKl, ll and lll just did not do it ... thankfully I have quite alot of leather scraps to get it right! The opener is sourced from France ...
