    Looks like a lot of people pulled the trigger because they're all sold out except for the camo one :furious: Hopefully they get them back in stock...I'm ready to order a few!

    My 2016 calendar. Front half is a monthly calendar back half is for notes. Still needs some fine tuning to do. I need to adjust some of the placing.

    Boredom the insane prices charged for field notes here in Greece and all of you guys made me attempt to make my own. Here is the first batch. Sorry for the lousy cellphone pics

    And then I thought "I need a cover for these" So I made this

    It takes two notebooks

    For first time it is pretty usable but I think I will try one with better bias tape,elasic closure and pen holder (hat tip to Recycled Firefighter)

    The cover is made of tarp material that is used for tractor trailers. My brother has a small hauling company so there were scraps lying around. The bias tape is thin polyester and I sew it with my mothers ancient LADA sewing machine.

    Very nice. Im going to have to look into that. Leather can just be a little to thick

    These came in the mail last week while I was out of town. They were a gift from our very own jdcarpe! I really dig 'em brother! I think they're my new favorite! Sorry it took me a couple days to post pics, I've been away from a computer for a week (When I'm on vacation, I try to keep away from these things and use my phone minimally). I just realized today that the cover is manila folder! Love that!!! Thanks again bro!!!

    Those look perfect. They have the dot grid too! I really like the dot grid notebooks. I think they are my favorite now. :)

    hey tom, how do you like it so far? I have a hidebound notebook sleeve, but found Odin on instagram and was considering buying one. is the leather thin and malleable or is it thicker? Can you post a top down picture with a book inside? Thanks!!

    I am liking it so far! It rides in my back pocket every day and it is starting to conform. The leather is thin and malleable. Odin is local to me and I enjoyed talking to him at the craft fair. Here are the pics;
