    Yes, they should. Just for fun, I took a paint pen & wrote "ACME" on it.

    That tiny 2 lb anvil rocks!
    I bet it's easier to move than mine, too...

    @Bax I think you are right! How much does yours weigh & how do you use it?
    I completed an eyeglass case yesterday, from a Tandy Kit.

    Good job on the eyeglass case, Sara! It looks like you're proficient with the stamping and tooling!
    Yay!

    Oh, and my anvil is for farm use... general whacking and a little bit of blacksmithing. Sometimes it's just a place to put my drink, when I'm working on one of the tractors. ;-)

    Thanks @Bax. I am almost done with 2 valet trays, made from scratch. Coming out nice, despite some mistakes made from limited experience.

    I just completed the first of 2 valet trays. The second one is nearly done. Here is the one I made for my husband. It s made to honor Blackbeard’s lesser-known cousin, Brown Mustache;

    I should have used thinner leather, as it was hard to shape it. To get it into the desired shape, I put it in a vise & kept moving it along until it was bending where it needed to.

    I took a trip to Lyndhurst todays & bought more goodies- some embossing wheels, a T-Rex stamp & some leather sheets. I took some soft, chrome-tanned leather and sewed a pouch for my nice brass caliper.

    Latest project was a multi-tool pouch with a loop for a pen or small flashlight.

    @swarden43 I was wondering of you have been to Tandy’s Philly store yet?

    Not yet.
    Busy summer, and the older I get, the faster it goes!
    I'd still like to get up there, just don't know when.

    Ok, just wondering. In the Lyndhurst store, we got very good customer service, so I will be curious how that is, in the other stores.

    Here is the document case I made. I cut a 13” x 24” piece of leather from a single-shoulder. Rounded the corners, punched holes, stamped, dyed, burnished, etc.

    I made a leather basket. The critters approve…and have appropriated it.
