I was in the middle of my first lathe project and realized I had no way to turn the bottom of my bowl. I came up with this rubber jam chuck which should fit most bowls of a similar size. I will probably make a few more of different sizes as needed in the future.
When I released my recent leatherworking video I mentioned that I had mad a lot of mistakes, but since the video was in pretty high speed is wasn’t very clear what they were. I thought I would highlight my mess up’s so other people can learn from my mistakes.
This is just some testing I was doing to see if regular household tub and tile silicone caulk could be used to make a DIY silicone ring similar to the QALO rings.
My wife asked me to make her a minimal wallet that would hold just her CCW Permit, ID, and Bankcard. This was my very first true leather working project where I made the pattern, stained the leather myself, and saddle stitched everything. I just kinda dived in, and in the process made a ton of mistakes, had a lot of fun, and learned a bunch of valuable lessons. I’m looking forward to the next project.
Unfortunately, the audio was unusable (Kids playing and yelling a few feet away) so I published this in a more of a time-lapse format.

It been really hot in California and my sandals (Flip Flops) have just about given up the ghost. I’m making some new DIY ones out of a salvaged anti-fatigue mat, an adhesive traction pad, and some leather remnants.
