    Weaving Pattern Bifold

    I use AutoCAD to draw the pattern and punch out slits with an 8mm flat chisel. The slits are offset by 1mm.

    Some of my projects during the stay-at-home time.
  3. The entire back side of the weaving pattern is glued to another piece so the small spaces don't break.

    The leather is just regular pebble leather. The exterior is 1.2mm, and the interior is 0.4mm. It's difficult to find 0.4mm leather in the U.S.

    Splitting Leather?

    Hi guys, Do you have any recommendation for splitting leather down to 1 oz?
  14. This is how I made it: 0.8mm lamb skin for strips, pattern, and lining. total of 2.4mm when stacked 1. Used AutoCad to draw out pattern. (See image) Pay attention to the corner. 2. I used an 8mm flat chisel to punch slots. Make sure the slots are offset by a little bit. 3. cut 8mm strips and weave through the slots. 4. Adjust the strips so the weaving pattern is not crooked. 5. Glue a lining on the back. make sure to get all the strips so they don't move around. Please advise.
