How to make a Penner

    The topic of period tools came up on the SCA Scribes list recently.  Master Ranthulf is at it again, showing off some absolutely beautiful reproductions.

      The topic of period tools came up on the SCA Scribes list recently.  Master Ranthulf is at it again, showing off some absolutely beautiful reproductions.  The pictures re-sparked my interest in collecting a more period illuminators kit.  The one piece I'd love to start with is a period penner (a case for quills worn on the belt, usually with an ink pot attached).  Can anyone direct me to a "how-to" for penners?  Any good research books would also be appreciated.

      Thank You - Christine of Marinus, Illuminator

        Christine,

        If you're in Atlantia, see if you can get up with Count Leaghrie (I'm sure I killed the named). He made a nice one a few years back. Aside from that, see if you can find someone with a copy of "Pouches in Pieces". I'm at work and forget the authors name. Anyhow, he gives a brief how to make a hardened leather case of just about the dimensions you'll need. It should be a transferable skill.

        About 1.5 cents,

        Cedric

            Speaking of leatherwork, I've been tempted by a project involving a leather drinking cup that appears to be glued up. Anyone know of a non-toxic glue for leather?
