Please forgive me if the subforum I'm going to ask about exists - and I'm too ignorant to find it Happy.

Like many others, I'm a non-professional that makes his own scabbard cores, does his own grips, wraps both, modifies commercial offerings, does custom leatherwork - that sort of thing.

Offhand, I'm having trouble finding a forum area suitable for posting of results & critique of this sort of work. Do we have one? Would it be worthwhile to create one, if we do not?

Depending if your project is historical or more fantasy oriented, it goes either in Historical Arms Talk or Off-topic Talk.

That's sort of the problem.... BOTH Happy. For example - I have a full tutorial on making a poplar core scabbard, employing a router. And another on leather wrapping a core (new, or re-wrap). Things like this are totally generic - with the target sword up to the designer. If one considers the issue... METHODS, TOOLS, OPERATIONS all tend to fall into that category Sad.

I certainly would like to see those tutorials. With Albions coming without scabbards, this would be interesting.

We purposefully don't have a ton of subforums. We'd rather have fewer buckets that hold more than more that hold less.

If your scabbard tutorials produce results that are historical in nature, regardless of the methodology, put it in Historical Arms Talk.

Without seeing the content of your post, I can't say as a moderator where it would go for sue, though. I'd suggest:

1) Searching for similar threads and seeing where they were located.
2) Post it where you feel it's best. If it's not the best fit, one of us will move it. People seem to get all worked up about threads being moved. While we'd love for every thread to go exactly where it's best, it's also ludicrously simple to move them. We don't hold the moves against people nor do we keep score about how often someone's threads get moved. Honestly, threads get moved enough that I don't devote ant brain space to keeping mental records of them.

Happy
