Leather Flask

Introduction: Leather Flask

About: Hi, I'm stephen, I'm a certified welder, working on my machinists cert, and working part time at a hardware store. Mixing in all of that with my hobbies of blacksmithing and knifemaking, only makes for more...

This is a leather flask, it's waterproofed with beeswax, and a has a cedar and cork stopper. To pretty it up I carved a celtic knot on the front of the flask. You can see the full instructable about how I made it here.

    *TIP* I found that getting all the lintals out WAS a pain but if I took a handful oh 4-40 nuts and put them into the flask then shake them around for a minute and poured them out, it really helped to clean out the flask. After doing this about 6 times you can rest easy knowing you removed at LEAST 99% of the lintals(if not ALL).

    After seeing the flame wars on the other post, I see why you did the re-post. Really great job, great info, beautiful work. Thanks. Generally for things I will be either drinking out of or storing liquids in, I prefer to line them with Brewers pitch. Grant it, it is a bit "touchier" to use. Again Thanks
