P.S. If you want to make me cry, ask me how annoyingly difficult it was to make.

Re: Card case


  Originally it was a cigarette case kit from Tandy Leather. I got it at my local store but if someone ordered it online they would go to

[sign in to see URL]

The case is item# 4119-00.

  I had dye it as it was a beige-like color. I used Tandy's Eco-Flo Dye in "Range Tan." (item# 2601-07 although that is for the quart bottle. I bought a 4oz bottle, but for some reason I couldn't find the 4oz on their site.)

  Then I used 2 coats of Eco-Flo "Satin Shene" leather finish (item# 2611-01).

  Instead of sewing it up with the included cord, I bought some medium (item# 1273-12) and large (item# 1275-12) rivets in nickel , a cheap rivet-setter tool (item# 8100-00) and anvil (item# 8056-00) and attached the rivets bottom side out so the holes would show.

  And, of course, I used a rubber mallet which, luckily, I already had lying about the house.

  It was really rather difficult to do the riveting, especially when you have done the bottom and one of the sides. At that point I had to find something to stick INTO the case to act as a makeshift anvil (I used a hunk of lumber from my shed that just happened to be a usable width).

  The photo for the kit shows it as having all this intricate leaf-work on it, but it comes flat blank so you can do whatever.

Thanks,

Re: Card case


Darn! Now we’re all going to have to get one! I knew this day was coming. How did you happen to fixate on, of all things, the card case?

I don't know really. I remember when I first watched the show how odd it was that they were in a leather case.

For a while I would search for leather card cases until I remember having made a cigarette case when I was a teenager. I remembered it being similar and the search began.

I will say one thing, it IS possible to get a pack of cards in it but it takes some WORK. I have a deck still in the box shoved inside it hoping that it will stretch it out a bit.

Soak it in warm water and form it over a piece of wood the same size as the deck of [sign in to see URL] will stretch as it dries and fit the deck perfect. leather is easy to form when wet (soaked thru)

Re: Card case


OK, I ordered one. Painting radios and riveting leather is not my dream job, but we have to do these things.

Re: Card case


This just occurred to me.

I've assumed all this time that the case was an Object.

But, do you think maybe it's just a case that the order was using to keep the Joker hidden?

I want to keep thinking it's an object, but I'm just not sure.

Having said that, would the order have had any sort of Non Object on display? Wouldn't that sully the purity of their room? I know that the lamps, bed, etc. aren't the actual Objects, but this is something on the actual shrine.

Man, I spend WAY too much time thinking about this stuff.

LOL
