Hold please.. will post some pics soon.
Still in the works though. But this section needs a bump!

*insert Muzak*

Please continue to hold....
Thank you for your patience.

*more Muzak*

Long story short.... I ended up redoing this case a couple times. Front and back panels due to bad dyes, lack of experience, and I was never crazy about the original design anyway. So I changed it up, practiced a shit ton with new dyes, mixing techniques, and did a whole lot of tooling practice too. Which I still have a LONG LONG ways to go but I think my work is getting better. At least, I hope so.

Anyway, here is the revised/revised/revised version of the Biomech case v3.2 case. (so far)

I've been following along on facebook and this is going to be killer when done. Excellent work, my friend.

Hmmm....
I'm not sure if it's good or bad that I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not. :roll:

But yes, it's already sold! Woo hoo.

I took this case to the 13th Annual World Leather Debut in Sheridan Wyoming this past weekend which is one of the top leather competitions in the world. Was very honored to win a 3rd place finish in the 'Stand Alone/Tooled Leather' category. That's pretty respectful considering this is a very non~traditional piece. Of course, I will be back there next year with something new to try again! Again, thanks for looking and for the support. ~RG
