If someone does start a Leather Craft Forum, would it be a place to discuss stuff or like a classified venue?
I'd be on board to "peddle my wares" there!

I sent the idea to Bryan, I don't think he will have a problem with it. ::tu::
We just need to wait until he gets time to make the new forum.

I'm going to run an idea up the flagpole here and see if anybody salutes ...
How would you and anyone else reading this feel about a leather craft forum? For guys who make sheaths and want to show off how they do it so that other people could learn how to make their own, exactly like we have done in the knife repair forum.
New line
Would anyone be interested in a DIY sheath forum?

"Great idea". I love leather work and would love a leather forum. ::tu::

That is great work, for someone who has only been into it for 4 months, well done. ::tu::
