  12. Hey guys im mark from the UK, i thought i would join this forum because im now a full time carer for my mrs and i need somthing more to do than just ride and play with motorcycles haha. i love the smell of leather but been watching a few youtube videos on how to choose tools and such :), the only thing im finding a problem is understanding the quailty of leather as ebay stuff never mentions if its 3oz or otherwise i love the whole leather carving aspect im yet to learn to hand stich leather as thats what i would rather do than machine as it is more unique :). i love the gun holsters but sadly being in the uk means i have next to no means to make them other than for cosplay im glad you guys have made this forum i spent about 12 hours on it last night just enjoying everything
