Mark don't knock it mate 🤔

That is a very intricate and difficult pattern to tool.....and needs patience and perseverance.....you cracked it mate :thumbsup:
Just go gently back over the tooling and blend out any obvious parts you are not sure of.
I reckon your Dad is going to be over the moon with that.....great job!! :thumbsup:

That really look's..... and is.... the business @Ark79 :thumbsup:

The pattern you have used on the leather compliments the Buckle design a treat.

I can see the "Old Fellas" chest popping out now when he tell's his friends that his Son made it for him :)
Have to agree with the "Old Man" though.......it does look good being darker 🤭

Nice work mate :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words bill 😁 would have liked it a tad lighter or two toned but it’s his call , can’t have everything my own way I suppose 😁

I’m taking it to him today at some point, will find out what he thinks then lol … am sure he will like it 👍🏻… he’s honestly harsh and doesn’t mince his words so I’m expecting a true response from him😂 little nervous to be honest 🤔 then it’s on to the next project 😁
