How durable is the stitching? Thanks for the 'ible. I had some trouble following the pattern part, right close to "This next part is a tad trickier.". Maybe you could add some arrows to your diagram? Thanks, interesting 'ible.
Thanks for the 'ible. I had never thought of combining woodworking and leather work.
Very cool 'ible. Can you build up your block with a couple of batches of plastic? can you heat up and press enough for 1/2" layer, then repeat? Will it stick together? The marble bock looks really nice.
I do like the folded and glued edges. This makes the wallet look more refined. There are very few designs that have folded and glued edges.
"Mark the material to show which edge will be the reference edge on each piece."I'm not quite clear about how you determine which edge will be the reference edge, but this point seems to be very important, so I want to ensure I understand it. Do each of the 4 boards have a single reference edge? For the first pair of boards the reference edge is always pointing right and gets a finger first? For the second pair of boards the reference edge is always pointing to the right and gets a space first?Also, just for clarity, when you flip a piece you flip it top to bottom, ensuring the arrow still points to the right, is that correct?Thanks. This is on my woodworking bucket list of things to do.
That looks pretty neat. Nice video as well. You look like you are having fun.
Great 'ible for a material type I have had issues with in the past. I'll try the knit or stretch needles first, but am also thinking of the walking foot, which might help me.

If I have the choice of screw between a Philips (x head) or Robertson (square head) I always choose the Robertson. It is easier to remove.For wood I often use a larger drill bit, drill out the head, then with the screw post going right through, remove the piece of wood. After exposing the screw post, use vice grips. I have also hammered a flat head screwdriver into the screw head. All these techniques are very useful.
Very clear explanation of how to sew the baffles in a logical manner. I've been searching for an hour on how to make a baffled down duvet and those sewers can't explain clearly. Your simple illustration was excellent. 'ibles to the rescue. Thanks.
Great trick. Thanks for the 'ible.
Good job and 'ible. It looks great. Hopefully the dye won't rub off onto your skin or clothing. If you want a back brace you will need to make both sides horizontally shorter, to be able to cinch it up tighter. This would make a strong corset. Sew in some stiffer plastic for fake whalebone, which will give it more stiffness. Add a pocket for a small dagger, just to keep the guys in check.
You could use welding gloves to handle the hot alum frame, or silicone kitchen mitts. Both will keep your hands safe from burns.
Good 'ible. I never thought of using a toaster oven.Using a technique from the orthotics (artificial limbs/braces) world if you sew a cotton sock/stocking over your plaster forms you might be able to get more detail into your form. The vacuum goes through the stocking to all parts of the mould and therefore sucks in the plastic. The sock might leave thin lines in your plastic, so there is a tradeoff.
Thanks for the explanation. This scientific reasoning should be added to your description. I do like the 'ible and might make one just to test the science. We do not have so many flies here in Toronto.
