Ive been a long time reader of this amazing resource and finally decided I should join the community. Ive worked with leather since I was a child (mostly out of necessity of living on a farm, it was NOT pretty) but only decided to pursue the artistic/finishing side of the craft in the past couple of years. Up until this point, I had been learning much about woodworking, metalworking, antiquity restoration and amateur motor mechanics which has earned me a rather nice workshop with a cool collection of tools and a sizeable, cringeworthy debt. After three years of learning about leathercraft, I know one thing; I know absolutely nothing about leathercraft haha.
I'm immensely excited to have discussions with all of you in the near future and look forward to your constructive criticism when as I post the progress of this amazing craft.
p.s I also have a deep passion for vintage and antique tools (leather tools of course) which I'll be posting up too.
