  1. Looks good to me. That's precisely the look I'm going for. I'll experiment with that method as well.
  2. That's exactly what I needed. Thank you. Funny part is I actually watched that video just yesterday while searching for tips on how to do it but didn't pick up on the fact that he was reusing some holes to make it all match up. It's a topic that has proven surprisingly difficult to find much info on through searches and watching various videos. Seems to be one of those minor details that feels like a given to the seasoned leatherworker so it doesn't get much attention in writeups or videos. Thanks again!
  3. I've been a hobbyist for a few years now but have mostly used patterns for all of my work thus far. I'm working on a round box with lid (simple cylindrical box) with the round piece of the lid and bottom inset vs. laying on top of the cylinder. I don't want to use an overstitch and would prefer to use a box stitch. However, I don't understand the process for matching up the stitches between the inner circle/lid and the strip that forms the cylinder. The stitch line around the circle is a shorter distance than the line along the cylinder so if I use a pricking iron or wheel to lay out my stitches, I end up with more stitches on the strip than on the round inner piece. What is the traditional way of getting uniform stitches in this scenario? Or is it just a matter of practice and skill to do it by hand/eye vs. using a wheel or pricking iron for spacing?
