Tent stakes 3 by Durnstaros
Tent stakes 3
Spent a weekend or so finishing up the tent stakes I will need for my trip to Visby.

Based on 2nd-3rd century Roman tent stakes.

Most of these are made in thinner material than the previous version, mostly to speed up production.
The top right is in the original thickness, but made longer than the previous version.

All of them forged in spring steel and point hardened.

As usual covered with graphite paste.

Simplistic belt by Durnstaros
Simplistic belt
Made a very low-tech leather belt that should be at home in almost any time period.

Buckle is forged steel wire, soldered and treated with graphite paste.. Leather is normal veg.tan treated with oil and grease, no dye.

Stitched with undyed linnen thread.

Project bag 3 improved by Durnstaros
Project bag 3 improved
My leather tool bag was rather cluttered and unorganised, not to mention a tad dull.

Added a carry handle, a version of my logo painted onto the lid, an extra front pocket (mostly hidden under the lid) and rows of tool holders inside.
Said holders visible only as a row of rivets on the outside.

Sorry for being rather quiet so far this year.

There are many more things coming, both models (been too long!), more leatherwork and various smithing projects.
Overly complicated axe sheath by Durnstaros
Overly complicated axe sheath
Sheath for a splitting axe with 'wings' which warranted a rather unusual shape to cover properly.

Done in an afternoon while on vacation.

Experimented with making all stitching holes with a fork awl this time. Worked surprisingly well.

No dye, just veg. tan leather and locally made leather grease.

Just thought I'd update a bit so a post from 2011 isn't on top...

Started working with leather a few weeks ago, which is why a bunch of leather stuff have been filling the gallery lately.
I'll probably continue with that but move to more advanced things. We'll see.
Still building models, just slower than before. Hopefully some new mechs and tanks will be finished before the year is over.

Also attended Sunset Park, an alternative music and fashion show in Umeå, and dressed up in black uniform with that msu/2p gas mask and a chainsword.
Was more popular than I thought and ended up getting photographed a lot, even in the local paper.

Will probably add more to that costume.

Hello!

I would like to congratulate you for your gallery. I thought it was very good and the most original work. I also feel a great attraction for the Imperial Guard, and your projects have greatly liked.

A greeting!
