What are we doing?

Postby Eric C » Sat Nov 23, 2019 6:17 pm

Greetings fellow rangers! I'm interested to know if anyone has any ranger-related projects going on. At the moment I'm in the house listening to the rain and getting ready for lunch. I personally am working on two commission blades and yuletide gift exchange items. Elyon and I have started something that I am very excited about. We are working on our first full sword length blades. They are Anglo-Saxon inspired ranger blades. These blades will be written into their owners' histories. They are not pattern welded for a couple of reasons, not the least of which is that I'm not willing to tackle pattern welding and long blades in one big bite.

As usual, before anyone says it, I know, "Pics or it didn't happen." As soon as I figure out how we are posting pics now, I'll gladly share. The process is also being videoed for my forge's YouTube channel.

So, yeah. What have you got going on?

Hi Eric: I'm working on a project that will be revealed in the form of a upcoming contest prize. It will most likely be a pick a number between and the closest will win the prize. I want to keep it real simple as everyone has a lot on their plate this time of year.

I've been quite distracted of late, with a big steampunk costume project, and the MERF gift exchange, this week I got both of those out of the way and am planning some projects, and hopefully will be continuing with this one: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4298

This is the method I use most often to upload pics: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4303 other than that you can still up-load them direct to the board but the image file size limits are quite tight

I'm contemplating a need-wallet and patterning some cloaks...steeling myself to buy the vast quantities of expensive cloth required for that endeavor.

I run a leather workshop, so I tend to have at least one ranger-y project going at a time, the most recent was the pouch here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4339

Some time soon I plan to make a replica of faramirs duster from the two Towers for a customer.

I'm busy, actually!

I'm regularly hunting with this year's hawk (2-3 times a week), I'm treating some homebrew oilcloth for a new groundsheet, I have a batch of pocketsoup in the works, and I just ordered some new wool socks for this winter's outings! Planning to dip some new candles for a new lantern soon, and I just ordered a spool of heavy linen thread so I can splice up a new bowstring.

As for progress on the gift exchange...I'm not telling!
Now the sword shall come from under the cloak.

I have a Polish Lavvu tent, so I am making a "footprint" to make up for the fact that it has no floor. I'm also working on a way to incorporate the mosquito netting in order to make it a truly, "4 season" tent.
