Welcome to my workbench where I got started with a desire to give a clean steel border to gator. I knew I didn't want any glue used so it had to be some form of pressure ring setup to connect them. I used thumb tacks and a spacer the thickness of gator (it's fun saying gator). From there it was setup time and holding my breath as I welded these tiny pieces, then grinding down the excess elements. It was fun getting the leather to fit right in. It was dyed then removed and a tedious weld job for the mini-ring was my last heated situation. Following that was a quick re-heat and quench x 2. I've gone with a less bulky 2mm copper choker. Would photograph better in the daylight but am excited to get this live. The name for it is Guide, the opposite of drivenness. The enemy drives and pushes. The Lord guides and leads. During this time creating today, I felt guided along every step of the way and am thankful. Hope you're doing well. Many blessings!
