Re: I makeded this. Breeish Wood Axe Sheath

I have already experienced the blade popping out, so I will be making more of a trough for it to sit more securely. ...but you don’t ...

Re: I makeded this. Breeish Wood Axe Sheath

Nice work looks clean^^ What kind of wood did you use? Did you do it in one piece oe did you glue on the holes for the rope? This was made from some hickory I had left over from another project. It’s all one piece, and was done with modern tools, mostly a router, power drill, and scroll saw. I inte...

Just built a wood Axe sheath based on Haibathu(?) Norse finds. For my breelander kit. Still finishing up, but I like it.

Based off research from these guys:

Re: Numenorean design motifs

Jack, what's the size on the size on that Irish example? Trying to get an idea of how small those design would be engraved. The original is in the Walter’s Art Museum in Baltimore. The diameter is 65mm, and the pin is 125mm. The dunedain spiralwork is MUCH more intricate than the original triskelio...

Re: Numenorean design motifs

One more because I can't get it out of my head. This one overlaid on the 9th c. irish penannular that inspired it.

Re: Numenorean design motifs

The recent question on Dunedain penannulars had me thinking, tried top stretch into some Numenorean territory beyond the simple arclines and lotus I've been playing with to this point.

Re: Faramir's Nail-Knife: Essential Kit or Ithilen field mod?

Finally got around to making a nail-knife. I Went with a small knife/patch knife idea. Sorta inspired by a kiridashi as well.

Re: Looking for a Middle-earth Appropriate Penannular Brooch

I don't do custom work any more. I know my personality, and it's much more important for me to get something right than to get it finished. And for some weird reason, most people do not appreciate 2+ year turn-arounds. ( Personally I don't get it. :shock: ) That said, this got me thinking. This is p...

What's in your (Need) Wallet?

....though how to get it smaller and still have room for a couple crackers and a cordial I've not yet figured out... I think one of the tricks with size is that it takes a great deal more mass of wafers made using the techniques and foodstuffs available to US in this day and age to create something...

Re: Joining the need wallet club

As for the reference to them being tightly sealed... Hmmmm. I’m actually kind of wondering now if it make make more sense to just let the leather case be just that - a case - and then inside that case there would be a much softer, lighter-weight package, either made of waxed cloth or some sort of t...

Re: Need Wallet and Sheath

I never posted a pattern for the wallet. Since there's a renewed interest, here it is. Oh, the pattern for the wallet and accordion is really simple. I do all my work with veg tanned leather, any suppleness is by working fat/leather dressing in afterward. The accordion is simply wet formed. I just w...

Re: Working on a Bree-lander kit

Hey Guys, Long time, I've settled on the look of the Breelander kit, and am midway through the sewing the bottom layers. Figured I'd share my plan. Taurinor's sharing of the Quintfall Hill clothing sent me in a new(ish) direction and here's what I'm working toward. Suggestions & criticism are we...

Re: Numenorean design motifs

Inspiration from an unlikely source I was researching Victorian and Edwardian metal engraving, specifically on guns, for a steampunk costume I've been working on and here's the page of sketches I ended up with after studying a lot of pictures on google: And I still can't get over how similar some o...
