    Link: DIY Waterproof Canvas

    http://www.instructables.com/id/Tincloth/?ALLSTEPS

    It was in my instructables newsletter from today. I thought for those folk with Canvas pods or anoraks it would be a cool DIY for you.

    Thanks for posting this. I am going to try making a canvas bag with a leather top and stip on front/back. I was going to try using beeswax and will now add in BLO.

    Would be useful for packs , rifle cases and the like but you don't want to do it for pods or anoraks as it stops the breathability. and flexibility. I made a canvas case for my DIY bucksaw and it was good for that.

    Point Taken Bill. I will remember that and I didn't think about it. It has so many possibilities.
