How to stamp and decorate your leather

Have you ever seen beautifully ornamented leather objects such as saddles, high-end purses or belts and thought “I wish I could do that…”. Well thanx to Bruce Cheaney here is a simple beginners tutorial on how a pattern can be cutted and stamped into leather. In this video, a tool called a “Swivel knife” is also used, and if you don’t know what that is, we have collected the demonstration for you here: What is a swivel knife?

How to scribe, cut and fold metal sheets

In this video, Will from Tested.com follows Adam Savage ( Mythbusters ) as he make a new quick access holder for his multi-tool. We like Adam, because even though he makes really specific things, he takes the time to teach general tips and tricks as he goes along. This video is just such a tutorial, and even if you do not want a multi-tool holder, watching this will teach you a lot about the process of scribing, cutting and folding metal sheets. In this case  the metal is aluminium, but the techniques he demonstrates here is the same for any metal sheet, except for the use of a chisel as a metal bending tool. Not mentioned in this video is how to remove the layout fluid after the piece is done, but almost any solvent will do, even nail polish remover. Adam will also, unwittingly, teach you the value of thinking things through before taking actions 🙂
