  1. Veg Tan Leather Finish (for best patina)

    Thanks VabaX. Thats what i am after...having the product patina nicely by the customer....and not looking grubby. Are there any other options....products which can be used? Virgin Olive Oil...Dubbin ??? I am only new at this (hobby) and dont really want to outlay for all of the products etc for only a few items at this stage. Cheers
  2. Veg Tan Leather Finish (for best patina)

    Hi Northmount, I did a search and cant seem to find any topics....can you point me in the right direction? Cheers Ryan
  3. Hey All, I have some 1.2mm thick veg tan leather that i am planning to make some wallets and nbotbook covers from. I want to keep the natural veg colour and have it darken with age and use in a nice way...however, i have seen some peoples items from veg tan and they seem dirty and grotty....not nice patina at all.... What do i need to do to the leather so that it will patina in a nice way with use...before i pass onto the person.... Cheers

  5. Wallet Templates

    Thanks Flatwater. I am looking into it and will most likely get it. Thanks jpounder95. I downloaded them and see that the first set works well. However, the vertical wallet template seems to be missing a page. I did and up getting the makesupply wallet plans from etsy and found its very simular to yours. oh well.... Thanks to everyone for their comments and support.
  6. Wallet Templates

    Hi Guys, I have been searching for hours on end and am finding it very hard to get free wallet templates. Mainly looking for 6 card slot bi-fold. Also a 12 card vertical bi-fold. So i think i will need to purchase some templates. I have come across Armitage Leather which has a bundle for $18 (AUD). Has anyone used these? What are there thoughts? Cheers

  8. Wallets layers?

    Yes I did offset them. One left. One middle and one right. The final 2 are a left and middle. Once done I will post pics. Cheers for the support.
  9. Wallets layers?

    So I have cut down the pieces to ‘Ts’ and have turned 5 layers thick to only 2. Heaps thinner.
  10. Wallets layers?

    Thanks everyone for their comments. The leather I am using is kangaroo so it’s quite thin already. Sorry if this question has been asked before but was not sure what to search for. Cheers
  11. Wallets layers?

    Hey guys i am new to leather work and am looking at copying my favourite wallet. I have cut out ‘T’ Pieces to make 6 card slots but it is very thick as the t pieces overlap. What can I do?
