  1. 1871 specifically and I'm not familiar with north/south for California so whatever death valley would be considered.
  2. I am considering a project for a hotel out west. They pride them selves on having everything period correct and thus my question. I'm thinking about making a lateher covered guest registery for the hotel and want to tool the cover as well as include the hotels original logo. Does anyone have any examples or can guide me in the right direction to figure out what the tooling style would have been in the late 1800's in California? I've tried to do my own research but have really only found the more modern styles. Please help! And thanks in advance for any and all info you may have.
  3. Hardrada I'm not exactly pressed on time just trying to get some product up on my etsy page to keep my store relevant in the algorithms. Jcuk the single layers are about a 1/4" thick but everything has already been glued. The chisels I have are just basic ones from amazon, nothing special. I can upload some pics, they're paddles so wasn't sure if that would be appropriate to post outside of the adult section. Dont wont offend anyone.
  4. I'm working on a couple projects and needing to hand sew what I consider extremely thick leather. Project one is about 1/2" total and project 2 is about 3/4" total... 3 and 4mm diamond chisels but the prongs on those wont go all the way through, I've got a basic awl but not a diamond one. I'd like to know what everyone recommends as far as 1.creating the stitching holes 2. What type and thickness thread should I be using? The stitches are more visual than structural but still need to be able to take some stress.

  6. I've got most of a whole deer hide I bought to use in making floggers. Its onyx black in color and from horween... it has got to be some of the softest leather I've ever felt (I'm still extremely new) what are some thing that could be made with this. I was thi g a small purse or bag, however it's far to soft to hold any real shape...
  7. Here are my first few projects, they're just basic stuff I found free templates for online. let me know what you think. What's good, what's not so good... where can i improve etc...

    Hey all, new to leather, and new to the forum. Career military, and currently living in northern NY (Southern Canada) I stumbled upon leathercraft while researching how to make a flogger. I was immediately interested and completely immersed myself with all things leather... in the last 2 months I've purchased all the basic tools, 2 mouse hides and a Horween deer hide. The moose have served me well to make wallets and small card holders, I have found that I'm not terrible at it and will likely continue as you can only get better with time. I think my next adventure will be with veg tan and see what I can whip up with that... I'll try to add some pictures when I can.
