Looks pretty smooth for a first timer. The great thing about working with leather and biulding saddles it biulds a desire to try again. Most of the time you already know the places you want to improve next time.

I just posted my first saddle. Yours looks great and it looks like we are both fans of Al Stohlman's books :)
