duaneballard : @knittinquintin Just a habit.
duaneballard : @knittinquintin A lot of the time I'll use the edge that's going to get cut off to try a tool to see if that's what I want to use.
knittinquintin : I saw another guy doing that and I didn't know if there was an advantage. I'd be worried to have it finished and make a mistake cutting it and have to start all over. Thanks for the answer, Duane.
burnoutleatherco : Nice clean work, always impressed
bigceazy : How did you get those teeth in there???
runs_like_a_rhino : @duaneballard I love your work. I've recently started tooling as a hobby and your work is so inspiring.
duaneballard : Thank you everyone! @runs_like_a_rhino @burnoutleatherco @madsquirrelleather @standardcycles
duaneballard : @knittinquintin Put the straight edge on the work side when you cut.
