Thanks Anne-Sophie.

To ensure the tops fit the way I want them to I finish the lower sections and then form the upper section around them.

 

First is an Emperor case in all black.

Next is a pair one Emperor case and one for a Montblanc 149.

Finally a special colour option. Light colours are especially difficult to get right as any tooling will cause the leather to darken.

The last one is, Wow!

 

I hope you will share the closures you make for them, those cases are unique, even more so with the special closures.

As requested here are the closure systems, The wooden toggles are shaped to form pen rests the metal cones fit on the thong to cover the knots in the ends. There are also small leather tags with initials on them which are not in the picture.

I am fully caught up on my outstanding orders now so will be doing a few different projects in the next few weeks.

This project is one I started a few years ago a friend gave me some used shotgun shells and sais "see what you can do with these" so this is what I did.

I call it shotgun chess :) I am not really a fan of either but it was an interesting project.

Thank you so much Michel!

 

Those closures for your unique, pen like, pen cases are truly a wonderful work of minutiae and innovation.

 

The same could be said, looking at your latest project, impressive idea and a truly heirloom chess set.

I  think it is the first time I have seen a bicolor pen case, in that style, I can't think of anything more perfect for a bicolor pen.

 

Heading over to your blog for the briefcase project.

 

I realized I haven't posted on your thread for two months, I let it move further than page 2 or 3 in the topic.

 

Involved in voting right advocacy for quite some time, usually, two months before an election, it is a strong focus  of mine and other things go by the wayside.

Hi Anne-Sophie. I am sorry to say there is nothing new on the blog or the website. There was a problem getting the red suede for the inside of the briefcase I have two suppliers and neither had it. 

I am sorry to say there are no pen case orders at the moment so there has been nothing to share.

Was the red suede requested by the people who wanted the restored briefcase? Or is it your color preference?

 

I really feel guilty about not making sure your post stayed on the first page by commenting on it, in the last two months, which are the months people would check for Holidays gifts ideas.

 

I hope your family is doing well, health wise, especially, because it is really important.

Please dont worry Anne-Sophie this thread has been running for many years. Over the years I have taken a number of breaks, and have had periods when there are no orders for pen cases or other things I think might be of interest.

 

I know there is interest in the briefcase here. It took a long time to strip the case making sure all of the small pieces of thread were removed.

A number of areas had split and these needed to be repaired using thin pieces of leather like this.

Once all the repairs were complete and the customers choice of suede had arrived I started wrapping the inside with suede. The two dividers are wrapped as is the front and rear panels.

Stitching is a long process on this restoration.
