    Lookie what I made...

    Inspired by the thread concerning vintage bags for vintage bikes, along with SixtyFiver's vintage CCM bicycle, I got the idea to try and make my own "vintage bicycle tool roll" of sorts. Being a fan of Carradice bags, and living in the Pacific Northwest...waterproofness is a must.

    What you're looking at is a bead of water sitting atop a small sample of canvas duck that I turned in to oil/wax canvas duck by hand. It's been sitting there for about 10 minutes now. This is turning out to be a fun project

    The current design is just a basic fold-n-roll tool roll. It's the easiest to design and construct. Just large enough to carry an extra tube or two, levers, multi-tool, axle nut wrench...and emergency coffee/beer money
