I'm adopting 'Taurandir' as a given surname. It's a common habit in Midle-earth, it seems...Beleg Strongbow, Turin Turambar, Gandalf Greyhame, etc. I'm having a darned difficult time settling on a first name I can stomach. Tirathon is a good approximation of the meaning of 'Gregory', so that fits w...

I was scrolling facebook just now when I happened upon an ad for some new leather stamps being sold through the Springfield Leather Company, and they caught my eye because I felt they had a vaguely Tolkien-esque/Numenorean-esque aesthetic. Thought I would share them here for anyone who might be inte...

So - a little follow-up to this saga! Yesterday I was talking to a woman who is a really talented jeweler and smith who also does 14th century reenactment, who recently made some really beautiful buckles for me which I intended to use on my new quiver (I ended up only using one of the three, but tha...

Okay folks! I’m getting super excited about these pictures as I edit them, so I’ve got to cave and dump a bunch more of them! But first, a little explanation: I have been trying to organize a Ranger outing of some kind since like... September of last year, and EVERY SINGLE TIME it has fallen through...
What I would recommend going forward would be to ditch the slits and instead sew on stylized belt loops. Every time we stitch something to the outside, it stiffens things, rather than allowing that crumpling. It's fantastic craftsmanship...I just don't see the functional need to cut slits in the si...
Looking at your pictures again... I'm really thinking what happened was you had maybe a softer spot or twist in your leather, and as you worked your way stitching down from the top you slowly put in a stretch on one side. Something like this: quiver-craft.jpg edit: also note how the two pairs of sl...
Oh no! That's heartbreaking! :shock: There have absolutely been those crafting moments when I wished the physical world had an "undo" button... and more than a few almost-done projects that went into the garbage bin or onto a shelf to try and fix "someday." It's part of the game...
Yeah, I really like this take. I wonder how Elven disstaffs would look, or even if they would use them? Because i think it is quite likely they spun in the same way as in Europe, with a disstaff holding and wool and two hands on the string. I quite like this depiction of a woman using her head as a ...
WELLLLL. This... is not going well, unfortunately. I was getting SO CLOSE to the end of this project, and I was pretty excited, although a little apprehensive about a few details - but then I managed to completely screw up several steps that are, unfortunately... well, they’re completely irreparable...
