Thanks for starting your own thread and for coming to Denimbro. Your work looks pretty darn good and in the pictures you've posted so far it has definitely transformed some otherwise ordinary looking boots into something else altogether.
Is there anyway you could give us a ballpark price range for what this type of thing costs? It would be much appreciated.

indeed, I would like to know the prices for repair works as well. I'm a big fan of your works and would even consider sending them over from Europe to have them done by you

Nice work Brian, Without blowing any trade secrets...Can we see some of your work in progress, pictures of dismantled boots and to satisfy my inner tool geek can you post some pictures of the hand tools or machinery that you use with a bit of background on how you got to where you are now.

Thank you for those patiently waiting for Role Club Engineer Boot's release. I will announce the official release date very soon. I will only be able to construct about 10 pairs every 2 months because each pair will be handmade by me.

Thank you to everyone around the world who has given me the privilege to work on their boots. I started repairing/constructing boots because I grew a deep passion for the craftsmanship. I tend to have a hard time departing from each pair of boots I work on. I don't make boots for money making. I do it because it's my life. All of you are a part of Role Club history. I sincerely thank you.

Hey Brian, Hows progress of the Role Club Engineer going? Do you have a rough idea when the first one will roll off the bench? I would like to see the HH, hardwear, soles ect. You know... some kind of boot aperitif, but i will understand if you don't want to divulge before the great unveiling.

At the moment I am in the process of creating my very own Role Club Halfsoles and heels.
They will come in solid Brass roller buckles I bought from Japan. My first release will be on a flat toe last. The leather options are Horween Brown or black horsehide, and Dark Olive Steerhide. Handmade by me from start to finish. Each pair will be made to order with the customer's size specifications. Thank you for those patiently waiting.

I'm surprised that someone had that work done and didn't ask for better buckles.  It hurts to see those on such an otherwise nice boot.

It's a long shot, but is there anyone in the uk doing work like this? Finding a good cobbler (ie someone who does more than glue on soles and cut keys) is like finding a unicorn.

I converted these Chippewa Engineer Boots to a 40's Style.
This pair is a bit different from the other 40's conversion I have done in the past. The owner gave me the privilege to add my own twist with this project. I added two thin leather soles like the original Chips. I also stacked the the heel with more leather and put a thin Catspaw rubber heel. To finish it off, the owner sent me these sweet roller buckles very identical to the originals.

Here is a picture of the process I go through with every resole I do. I handwelt every pair of shoes/boots for more durability. For instance I converted the stitcher construction on these Vibergs to a handwelt construction.

My first post to echo the rest of this thread: Brian is incredibly easy to deal with, has reasonable rates,  and does (obviously) fantastic work.

Since I'm here, a little bit on these boots ^: I purchased them via ebay about 7 years ago. They were unworn but came from an "old gentleman's custom boot collection" according to the seller in Elko, Nevada.

The only sign of "brand" is a small stamp on the leather which reads "Northwest". Is anybody aware of a boot maker or boot line by that name?

Regardless, thanks to Brian for breathing some new life into my main boots!

Do you have pics of the stamp DVD? Pics of the original sole setup and the inside would be helpful too to date them a bit better.
 
They look a bit like Knapp's from the instep stap shape, but the counter shape and other features disagree with the normal Knapp features.
 
You might want to do some digging on the brand name on the stamp. There were lots of smaller makers that were producing these through the better part of the 20th century. Many of them closed and/or were merged into other brands.

Ray, here's the stamp. Pretty nondescript!
Unfortunately I didn't have the foresight to take photos of the original soles way back when.
