Second version of my #leather cigar case. This leather is way thinner than the previous one and I wanted an all black lock. Still have to figure out how to close it, probably with magnetic rivets. But then I have to cover it somehow on the front.
After researching more gaming laptops with RTX3070s I ordered the Razer Blade 15 Pro.
The Razer Blade 15 might be a better choice, at least it has some upgradability in the case. But then I would like to have the pro version with QHD because only.that supports nvidia Advanced Optimus... 😑
The Alienware m15 line is interesting too, but the case & hinge looks stupid. Asus Zephyrus G15 is not for me, but the tech looks fine.
Well, my oura ring tells me to maybe take a break to recover. 😑 I'll take it really slow in the gym today, no #workout, just some technique practice and fun stuff like rope climbs and l-sits.
Had to take a nap after my #workout, although I didn't push it today. It was a grind as expected. If you need 30min to sweat, try this:
1.5mi run (I did 3k row instead), 40 push press 43kg, 50cal airbike, 30 push press.
Off to the gym. Todays #workout is a long grind, but fortunately without heavy weights. My recovery is not great and I need to get it back up again... 😑
First easy coding session while walking on my treadmill. Just for my youtube-dl project, nothing complicated.
I managed to get 4000 steps in. My oura ring is not tracking it right, because my hands are on the desk or keyboard most of the time, but I want to increase my daily activity, not track it exactly.
Another team #workout today. 300 wall ball shots split equally by 2. I wore my lifting shoes and it felt good. Probably more wall balls today than in the whole 6 months before.
My first #leather project, a cigar case. Not pretty, not for two cigars as planned, edges not finished (yet). The top cap is too large,the leather is too thick, I had no clamps nor wooden frame to form the leather.
But I learned a bunch, I used the tools and I already have ideas for the 2nd version of this. 😎
I need to redo the #leather top of my cigar case because I cut it out too narrow, now it won't fit over the bottom. 🙃 I stitched it already, but it was also my first stitch and it doesn't really look good. It's not really that bad, and I learned a couple things already.
Stitching those #leather pieces will take a lot longer than I expected. I guess I didn't pierce the holes good enough so have to redo every single one before I can thread the needle... 😬
Sitting with the stitching pony also is no joke, after a workout with lots of deadlifts, hang power cleans and push jerks. 🤷♂️
