Jenny's backpack

Just made a li'l backpack. It's about 12x12 and 4 inches thick. Usual stuff: 1000d Cordura and acrylic-coated poly.

 Trying out a simple one-piece zip pocket.

I did end up adding a sternum strap.

The bag came back

Some dickhole(s) stole my friend's bag out of his car this summer. It was just found in a nearby park. This is what it looked like after sitting outside for five months. Full of water and spiders, but not that bad. It's back in action.

Tool endorsement

I had to cut some vestigial ductwork outta my crawlspace last week and it would've been a real pain in the caboose without this Malco sheet metal nipper. It attaches to your drill. How cool is that! Thanks, Malco.

Wallet wear

Here's what five years of wear looks like on a label. Not too bad, I suppose.

The acrylic-coated poly looks great, though.

Pfaff table

Finally built a proper table with some scrap wood for my 335. Only took, like, five years. Time to use it more. :)
Practicing some woodworking skills: laminating plywood, routing, staining and using polycrylic. Good times.
