  1. Ordered a hide and i cant use it for tooling since it has been oiled. Is there anything i can do to it, to make it suitable for tooling again????

      I have some oil tanned/dyed. I'll experiement and see if I have a solution for you... might mean you'll have to buy a new bunch of tools though.

      Might pyrography work? Maybe you can burn decorations on. Will be stinky, this is an 'outside method', and a respirator might be a good idea too.

  2. need an idea for a new project.....

      when I'm stumped for ideas I make strappy things like bracelets.

      That just hurt thinking about that. Good thing I wear gloves when I work with stuff - too many nicks and cuts to want to feel that.
