    My Favorite Barstool So Far.

    Love your border, the tooling with the lacing. Done superbly (did I spell that correctly)?

    Wedding Gift I'm Working On

    Very nice, what a great wedding gift. I'll leave the dyeing to you. Dyeing that far into a project, scares the bejeezers out of me everytime. The thought of something not going right after all that work. Whew....I always cringe. Good luck, your friends will love it.

    I have the same issue with my wife. She handles all business stuff, we have two homebase businesses. But, doesn't know too much about the technical stuff with leatherwork, (what tools do what, etc.) But, what drives me nuts is when I find my tools around the place (out of place) because she decided a particular tools would work great for X,Y,Z. Like using leaather shears to cut card board, etc. Oh My...But, I love her, so I just cringe and keep my mouth shut, then just remind her the cost of leather shears, (or whatever tool) versus the proper tool for what she needs.

    Any Trick To Removing Small Scratches ?

    I would dampen the leather and then rub out the scratches with a modeling spoon. (oops, I should ask, are we talking veggie tanned leather?)

    Beginner Tool List

    I personally love having a fid for lacing, I don't agree that a modeling spoon works just as well. but thats just my opinion.
