Chinks part 2

  Here's an update of how the chinks are coming along. The pictures above are of the side panels and yokes oiled and sealed.  The next picture is with a little blig added.
Here's the yoke and side panel sewn on. Man oh man do I need to learn to sew!!! The last time I think I used a sewing machine was in Mrs. Jeters Home Eck class..... That was jr high. Still got a ways to go to finish these buggers, but I'm pretty happy with them. I know I could do a better job on them but I want to use them and to get them perfect would take forever. So Im doing the best that I can and gonna be happy with them. I really like the fact that I am building them myself and not buying them. Its lat and Im tired so I'll finish these buggers and get them posted next time. Take care

Looking good. And don't worry, according to Gommy on the RC board, I can't sew a straight line either! ;-)

Hey Jake! Great job so far on the Chinks. Can you tell me what you did to make that dark brown scalloped edges around the edge of the leather yoke/accents? I love the look.

Adrienne- If you look at the picture you can see the brown leather is under the yoke. The scallops was made with half a hole punch. I got them finished and am using them.
