I've just started to dabble, and I'll see if I can get some photos up shortly. Love some of the stuff you guys are doing, hope I can work a few of your techniques and wisdoms into my own process.
I've heard a lot of good things about some of the higher end leathers, and while buying them exclusively is somewhat pointless for me at the moment, would anyone be happy to sell me a couple of square feet each of a few leathers I can use to fiddle with a bit? Unfortunately easy leather access isn't a widespread thing in upside-down-land (Australia), and it'd be nice to have a play with a few things before I bother grabbing an entire hide (much less the shipping costs for them, jesus.). Happy to take offcuts and edges, don't want to be taking the prime cuts from the hides from you guys.
edit: There was a bit of a chat about patterns before. I was contemplating, if/when the time comes, to CAD mine up and have them lasercut onto stainless or aluminium (or something else that won't rust.).

Nice snaps, corter! I owe you one for convincing me to buy that Tandy hand press. I just set 60 snaps (120 halves) in about 45 min. What a dream to use...
Hell yea dude! Makes things so much more enjoyable. I remember back when I did the Japan bracelets I got to 200 sets/hr, could probably never do that now but it makes working so much more enjoyable. What are you making with the snaps?

I've made lots of products for friends, and recently decided to cast a wider net. Just started an Etsy storefront, and we'll see how that goes. Check it out here: http://www.etsy.com/...tarLeatherGoods
And some pics:
