Hello everyone my name is Eric and I'm from Kansas' I recently started getting into leather work and have made a handful of items. I find it super relaxing and quite rewarding.  Just wanted to say hi and share a few small items I have done and hope to get some feed back.. I have only done a little tooling and needless to say I have allot to learn. I have made several simple wallets a single saddlebag for my Harley a bag/purse for my wife and done some scrap practice tooling. Will try and post more pics soon. Let me know what you think thanks.

Thanks.. I need to post pics of my saddle bag still... Actually still need to dye it as well... I just used the last of my leather on a a sketch book I just started. What seams to be the best bang for my buck when it comes to leather.. Preferably vegtan but want to try some oil dyed leather soon as well. All tips appreciated.

If you want to do any carving, stamping or wet-forming, AFAIK, you must have veg-tan, unless you want to open a whole new can of worms. You can get some results with heated stamps ... so I have heard.

I think what you might need, if you want pre-dyed leather is called drum dyed leather. As far as I am aware ( hopefully somebody who knows for sure will step up soon), drum dyed leather is veg-tan but dyed in the factory.

Oil-tanned leather is also drum dyed.
