    Lovely video of making a feather blanket

    I watched all the way through, fascinated. The process of it and the tools needed have a remarkable resonance in some aspects of applied knotting work, even the use of that "third hand" (Swedish fid) and the baton (splicing sabre). And, yes, I too can vouch for the aching fingers in the doing...

    Moods that cause regret

    Ha. The book was Herrmann's Intuitive Archery....the one I had from Son, was Herrigel's Zen in Archery, And as I pointed out, when apologising, I said that , if I had come across the book that I believed was sent in error, then I would probably have ordered it anyway. On the other hand, the book...

    Moods that cause regret

    One of the pleasant things of mellowing with the passing years, is that I rarely have cause to be irked by the irritating situations that life throws at one from time to time. I ordered a a book to do with some of the mystical things which associate with intuitive archery...hmmm, it sounded just...

    Preparing thread for leather working. The Wayland Method.

    By golly, I do like the ditty bag...the build quality and substance looks as if it would easily cope with a direct hit from a twelve inch , HE shell. Regards Ceeg

    Preparing thread for leather working. The Wayland Method.

    Nice one! this is exactly the set-up that I use for "leathering" a wire eye splice. This is always done with the Baseball stitch, except I start from the centre and work towards the ends and I find it easier to keep the twin strands parallel, if they're drawn over a thin screw drive until just...

    canvas repairs advice

    Uncleboob, you've probably done the task already. I found that a folded hem will staple in position very easily while you sew, basting tape is better, but expensive for small repairs. Ceeg

    Put sheath on belt without undoing belt - ideas wanted

    On the other hand, could you not sew a short but stout leather strap to an appropriate position on the belt? , with a holdfast arrangement, ( buckle or Sam Brown stud), to secure t'other end . Just slot the strap directly through the sheath, or the axe frog , no hooks ,Carra's, danglers or...

    Handle project

    Job done. I reasoned that antler handles had been around for much longer than modern adhesives and I sought to try out the method of boiling the crown, knowing that you get just one shot at it. Another thought, was that I couldn't see First Nations successfully winkling-out all that core...

    Handle project

    I've been given a 'crown-end' of an antler and it seems to be shouting, "Nessmuk". Having never worked with this material, I would be most glad of some pointers to bear in mind and any pitfalls to be avoided. The section came via a stick maker up in Mull, though I don't know what beastie type it...

    Homestead, home grown mince pies!

    Cheers H. Many thanks for posting this. For a few moments I was re-cherishing half forgotten memories of the scent of hot ovens, caramelised sugar and spices and the whiff of Grandma's special Port wine. Seasonal Best Wishes Ceeg

    Burnt Ear ?

    I wonder if the OP is having a bit of a laugh....I reckon that he actually "burnt" the wound by dabbing it with 50:50 water and domestos...it's what I have done since donks ago, for minor wounds. Sure, it stings a little, but really cleans up and , I suppose, kind of singes-shut an open wound...
