Re: Hobbit woodworking tools

I LOVE my planes! They're a bit newer than these, but my family has a shadowbox filled with half a dozen old wooden-framed planes made by my great-great uncle, and they're gorgeous. LOVE old tools!

Re: Ithilien Quiver

The film ones look a good deal longer than mine, but I don't have measurements handy at the moment (AND I know I owe you some measurements already...)

I don't have a WETA pattern, per say, but I made my own and all four of my iterations have had the same initial dimensions when flat. It's lying around here somewhere...

Re: Ithilien Quiver

I've never seen an image of the backside of one (and I've definitely looked), but the way their straps are attached is not at all how most folks do their quiver straps. They attached them in a way that seems the LEAST practical, to me, because they don't have a third strap holding it in place, but i...

Re: Anyone making anything fun lately?

I’ve been busy with a few things, but the others kinda need their own thread and aren’t quite ready for that. Here’s a fun thing, though! This is my first batch of salt pork made using townsend’s method. It’s open-air, not a sealed jar, and when I’m getting ready to trek with it I’m thinking I’ll sm...

I can definitely see the similarities...but do you have a source that indicates that this was his actual inspiration for the Karma?

Re: Fur ideas

Definitely looks like Rabbit to me!

The fellowship left Rivendell with "fur lined cloaks" furnished by Elrond. Maybe some kind of shoulder-hugging mantle to be worn under your cloak, fur-facing-in, for warmth?

Re: Torches and light sources

It's an interesting topic. Torches with a true 'fuel' (ie. oil soaked rag, etc.) are, as you say, difficult to carry around or keep ready, but they have another problem. They're TOO bright. They'll literally blind you to everything around you outside their field of light, making them arguably more o...
