    Excellent work; I would like to make this - it has a certain stylish charm. What oil did you use for the reverse of the leather and what glue do you use for this project?

    They are the BEST - called chisel punches. They make them both for thread and lacing. :D

    That's great I'll have to get one. It sucks pushing those weird bladed leather needles through unassisted.
