First I would like to say I am sorry for not posting much. There have been two reasons. One my job gets real hard this time of the year and it has been a bit to hot for shop duties.
Now on to today’s post.
I had tried to make a chisel pouch out of some heavy canvass on my wife’s sewing machine. All I managed to do was bog it down and get the needle stuck. So I was in harbor freight and saw the sewing awl. It is perfect for hand stitching heavy materials. Now that I have some practice in a tool pouch of my own design is in reach.
With summer hear I have been camping when time allows. There are a few guys online that I watch for there skills in bushcraft. Dave Canterbury is one of them. He has a belt pouch he wears that I love. I had a few pieces of leather and thought I would give it a try. It worked out really well.
Now that I have practiced a bit. I will be able to design and make any tool pouch I want. This is an easy skill and you will probably find many uses for it. You can make bags, pouches, repair tents, shoes or hundreds of any other projects that require heavy stitching.
Sorry for the wind noise.
