    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm actually quite interested in making my own leather stuff... Anyone know a good source to get some of that 'natural' leather? No I will not kill a cow.

    Hm....honestly, I dont get my leather source from online, so my opinions may not count. However, I tried to outsource from the net before and found there are a number of suppliers for leathercraft. Probably, u can try google for it [​IMG]

    ^I like that card/key pouch a lot, Obbi. Everything in one place [​IMG]

    I've been making some more card cases lately. It just occurred to me that I can also make them in black with black stitching...

    Here's a photo of the new one (top) next to mine, which has about a year's use on it.

    That bifold wallet is cool. How thick is it? A bifold like that with a conch-style button would be cool.

    Thanks, the bi-fold is made of cowhide leather, it is softer than veg tan leathers. Now it is around 1.5cm when folded. Customizing is possible to thicken it, I can use a thicker brown or even a thicker veg tan.
    Concho-style, yeah, I can do that!

    @zissou, can u show the internal pics of your card cases? They are looking good even when new, man!

    I just like the size of that wallet vs. the taller ones, but I do love the flap/concho button that keeps it shut. I'm not in the market just yet for a new wallet, but if I am I'll talk to you!
