Thanks for the compliments. This is just a project amongst old friends. My brother is the bass player, and I've known the other two guys since we were kids. We played together during our adolescense, and went our separate ways for quite a few years. we started to get together again after we found ourselves all living fairly close to one another. But, one member has since relocated due to his career, and I am pretty busy with my full time (paying) band, so we are on the back burner again....the guitar player is still recording under the name with other guys. That is why there seems to be so many members in the band.

Way to go, Rock!

A friend of mine gave me a project I'm struggling with. His leather jacket needs a couple of minor repairs and one major one. One of the pockets is all shredded inside and needs fixing, however the jacket is lined so I'm going to have to open up the lining to get at the pocket and replace it.

I've been stalling because I'm not sure exactly how I will tackle this, but I posted the situation in a sewing forum thread and got back one helpful idea, and maybe more to come before I start.

I'll probably get started sometime tomorrow. I have a good idea now for where to start at least, but will probably get bogged down after I can see what needs to be done to replace the pocket.

I'm thinking I may (I hope) be able to use one of the front pockets of a pair of jeans I've started cannibalizing. Who knows, maybe I'll replace the other pocket too.

YAY. I got the jacket repaired. I opened a side seam of the lining and found that the pocket had been attached to leather flaps. It was fairly simple to just sew denim pieces to each flap then put them together (the denim) and sew around the sides of the pocket. Then all I had to do was blind hem the lining back together and do a little mending, so I'm DONE!

I also cannibalized another pair of back jeans pockets to use on a chambray shirt I have. It has breast pockets, but I want to add the back pockets near the bottom so I can put my hands in them when it's chilly.

Anybody else making progress or starting something new?

I build an Aron Kodesh for our synagogue recently. For those who are not familiar it is a cabinet where Torah scrolls are kept.

That sounds really nice. Do you have a picture you could post?

I do, but I don't think that is the completely finished one. I'll post it anyway.
There you go. There is a sliding open door, kind of like in entertainment center and that is where Torah scrolls are kept.
I'll try to take more pictures of the finished product and post it then.

It took me 3 years to finish it. Working few hours here and there. Also I have never worked with wood before, so I had to figure out each step. Here are coupple more pictures.
There is a step behind the Toras, so when we get more scrolls donated, I hope, there will be place to put more.

Wow! What a beautiful finish, too. You should be very proud!

Ah, finish is actually one thing I am not proud, it did not come out well, it just you cannot see it on the picture.
But thank you. Thank you very much.
