    Leather Box

    Thank you all. This is my third box. I think if I can figure out how to hide the seam (other than not showing it in the picure) it will be perfect.

    Leather Box

    This is my third attempt at making a box of leather. I was inspired by the Florentine boxes I saw on the internet. I figured a man made those, well I can make one too. Well its not simple, many many steps. I took the pictures below purposely hiding the flaws. The biggest problem to solve yet is how to make the seam in the back (not shown) disappear. The four sides of the box are made by wrapping wet leather around a rectangular mold. The ends meet up in the back. For now they are square butted (I have tried feathering). Maybe the seam should be filled in with leather filler. I also like the diamond style tufted upholstery pattern so I made the floor out of pig skin. The box has a false bottom, pull it up and hide your valuables. Thanks for looking, you can see the progressing of this project at @rnlleather on Instagram.
  5. Awesome . . . I think he wants to go out and show off his new leather!
  6. I bought the whole standard Kindle Paperwhite case from Amazon. I tore it apart and replaced the back piece. But . . . don't do that if you make one. I should have just glued the back onto the existing leather for same affect and a lot less work. The front is glued and sewn.
  7. Thank you! Both sides are glued, The top is also sewed all the way around. The back is sewed just on the hinge.
  8. Made this for my Mom. She reads more than a book a week on her Kindle Paperwhite. It is 4/5 oz double shoulder from Tandy.
  9. The rivets are from Tandy? Go back to the store and ask them to show you how to set those exact rivets. They are excellent people and will help you solve the problem.
  10. that's pretty awesome . . . consider myself inspired!
