  1. Chuck: Thanks for showing the tooling on something I will actually likely do. I have seen so many videos on the typical “Western Floral” style which doesn’t appeal to my personal taste. While that style, when done well, is amazing, it’s hard to extrapolate the techniques to something more in line with my Celtic and medieval interests. This video was that “a-ha” moment for approaching that design style. Thanks a lot.

  2. do you have a pattern for a face mask one the a person can change filters and if you what would it cost to order and would it have the instruction with i can’t down load a pdf file

      1. Reply to Larry Dennett Face mask patterns are all over the internet for free. Just download and modify to one piece. Line the mask with fabric for comfort and add an extra piece of fabric for a filter pocket. Hepa vac bags work great. Also you can moisten the leather and form it to your face – let dry. Happy tooling Hope this helps

    1. THERE IS A GUY ON YOUTUBE THAT HAS FREE PATTERNS FOR MASKS. I DOWNLOADED 2 DIFFERENT ONES BUT HAVE NOT MADE THEM YET.

  3. Thanks you do much for this video. I have doing carving so many years because I love the carving but have’nt been taught — Just a few books that doesn’t speak!!!! I am going to follow your video’s very seriously. You have taught me do much in this basic floral pattern. In South Africa there are many teachers like you and do not know if there are any and where to get them. Luckily I come across your Weavers Ad, thanks again.
