you can place the link in between these symbols without the * symbol in there & it should work,
Like this:    [*IMG]  your link  [*/IMG]


make sure to remove the *'s.
 ;)


or use the "Image" button up in the second row above, just above the smiley row & below the "I" < Italics button. It looks like a lil picture, & the Youtube button is to the left of it. Just click on that & paste your link in the little window that pops up & your pic should show.


Try that.

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

It's a neat, time tested design. I haven't tried making one yet, but I do like they way they look. I believe jontok posted a pictorial of one he made.

That was just the beltloop. :) (though I do have some pics of sheaths I've made, if you're interested in seeing them.)

Backwoodschuck: Nice sheaths you got there. Only thing I'd like to mention is that, if that's a beltloop on the big one there, then it should be on the same side as the seam. :)

Here's a few of mine, first ones are from really thin 2mm leather, lots of people said "oh thats far too thin and you will cut it in no time", well it's still going strong and there is not one cut in any of them, one of of them i use on a daily basis with my Hugo Little Whittler neck knife.





This one i made for my stacked handle knife



I have now disposed of the loop and use this as a neck sheath

Here's a (kinda) tutorial for that belt loop.
