    Does anyone here have experience in the Avon, Ohio area concerning granite companies?

    Recommended Leather Suppliers (US)

    Have a look at District Leather Supply, they have quite the selection, and it changes fairly often. They have some tools and hardware as well, but the leather is generally in small sizes (4x18, 8x18 inches and some 12x24 inches), with a few whole hides. I am only a hobbyist so I only need the small pieces and have yet to try straight veg tan other than Conceria Walpier Buttero at 3.5-4 oz., which is a dream to burnish and cut.

    Damascus steel knife

    I have checked them out several times online, and though it would definitely be easier and simpler, I want to make my own head/round knife eventually, probably from an old circular saw blade without the carbide teeth. That project probably won't start for another year though.

    How did you get into leather work?

    Thank you! Good luck in college, and don't let it drag you down!

    4-5oz suede, 4 x 18": what to use it for?

    That's interesting...I'll keep the feather in mind. The Suede is a little too soft-tempered for a wallet or phone case I think. Very flexible. I thought maybe a multi-layered key fob. I'll keep all these mind though, thanks! Benny

    4-5oz suede, 4 x 18": what to use it for?

    Ok, I'm open to that idea; I do want to make another coin pouch. Any other ideas though?
  10. I have a piece of suede 4x18 inches and don't really know what to use it for. I don't have a splitter, so that's out of the question. Any ideas? Thanks, Benny

    Hello from Ohio

    Sweet! I didn't figure on having so many Ohioans here! I do key fobs as well, whether decoratory or useful, but I mostly just dabble and experiment.

    Scratch Awls!

    Nice. I've never made a handle myself, but I plan on making a head knife eventually and it will need a handle.

    Scratch Awls!

    Nice! Did you already have the handle lying around or did you turn it?

    Men's wallet, black and blue, with company logo (I think)

    Wow, that is a big ID!
