  1. Is this leather any good?

    I checked the different grades descriptions and I do plan to order half of each but the low 3 grade, which should be ok for wallets at least I hope so. There are no extra costs except of maybe 6 eur or so for shipping and gladly don't have to stock buy that since I'm from Slovakia. Yeah, I've seen that video, also plan to buy his wallet templates. I know people generally prefer the Tiger thread (can't remember full name) but I plan to buy some from leathercraftstool, together with the whole equipment (I'm bit tight on a budget, everything including leather needs to be under 200e). Do you think it would be better to contact her or to buy a specific higher grade thread? The one I plan to buy is 4e/48m waxed thread.

    I'm from Europe actually, so Italy based company is ok
  3. Is this leather any good?

    I'm looking to get myself into leathercraft and and I would like to know if leather I plan to pick is any good, or should look elsewhere since it's cheapest from what I found. What do you think about the quality if that can be told just from the look on the website? I intend to do wallets and these will be my first projects so it doesn't have to be top quality, but I also don't want to spend my money on useless stuff. I picked 2 different thickness for outside/inside. https://buyleatheronline.com/en/home/41-natural-vegetable-thin-baby-calfskin.html#/8-color-beige_natural/33-average_size_of_the_whole_piece-13_m_144_sq_ft_16_yd/161-size-whole_piece/76-grade_quality-low_3_grade https://buyleatheronline.com/en/home/135-vegetable-tan-calf-sides.html#/8-color-beige_natural/40-average_size_of_the_whole_piece-2_m_22_sq_ft_24_yd/76-grade_quality-low_3_grade/162-size-half_piece
  4. Wallet craft time?

    I live in central Europe (Slovakia) and I do believe there is space to sell some, especially when i see what are people around willing to pay for useless and essentially garbage items. The biggest mystery for me however is the production time so i can make some calculations before I take this road.
  5. Wallet craft time?

    Hi, I'm considering to try to make some wallets to sell, I have no experience with leathercraft however. What would you say is the approx time to create some? both simple and more complex ones? Also if you would recommend tools i will need for this, I have seen some videos read couple articles but otherwise I'm complete beginner. Do you think it is possible and effective to make some extra bucks this way?
