Re: In memory?

What's the timeline?
Are you coordinating / can we send pieces to you?

I can send pennies this weekend, but if we have a few weeks breathing room I'll get a little scrap of illumination done as well.

Now I know how it felt to watch the elves sail from Middle-earth for the last time.

Re: Numenorean design motifs

Well this is cool - looking through Cedarlore's back catalog, I saw a reference to this thing he made some time back using some of the Professor's doodle-patterns: cedarlore-tolkien-floral-pattern-knife.jpg https://www.instagram.com/p/BNKt2vIFq-Q/ I have loved that flower-in-a-wedge pattern of his f...

Re: Exploring the Ancient Forest today

Oh those are some good woods to play in! Washington State, you say?

I've always adored the mountain skyline in the wooded foothills outside of Seattle - is that about where you are?

Re: Leather Snapsack wanted

For relatively inexpensive, you could give Matuls a try: https://www.etsy.com/listing/639655248/historical-sausage-leather-bag-small https://www.etsy.com/listing/639655118/historical-sausage-leather-bag-large I haven't seen their work in person, but I recently ordered a washtub from them and from pi...

Re: Twelve Silver Pennies: coins of the Breelands

Given that coinage in our world has always been quite closely tied to sovereignty, I still think it quite likely the pennies themselves were minted in the Breelands. Certainly Barliman's concern at the end of RotK concerning waves of newcomers absolutely indicates the Breelanders thought of themselv...

Twelve Silver Pennies: coins of the Breelands

So this is a project that's been a really long time coming. And now it's done! merf-silver-pennies-coin-purse.jpg Since the very first time I was curled up in the grade school library reading about poor Butterbur and his dear twelve silver pennies, I wanted a little "pony purse" of my own....

Re: My kit as of now

I am curious though how you ended up attaching your snapsack to the bedroll or vice a versa. So I promised an answer to this. What I *HAD* been doing was wrapping the blanket around the shoulder strap, giving it a quick tie to stay in place, then buckling on the goatskin cover. The bag is tied sepa...

Re: Water Canteen

I concur with Taurinor on all points, especially that a leather "gasket" over the stoppel's mating surface would be worth a try. Another possibility I've seen on wooden recorders from the pre-plastic-in-everything age is a gasket of cord or heavy thread wrap: often I think beeswax or other...

Re: Ranger of the Year for 2019 Nominations now open

While I'm very humbled at the nomination, I'd like to recuse myself again this year - if for no other reason than I got to provide the present, so it'd be kinda pointless. :mrgreen:

Good luck all!
