    Chessboard/checkboard Idea

    I use 5-6 oz leather that is pretty soft. When I unroll it, I roll it the opposite direction then back again and it lays flat. I'm not sure about using heavier or stiffer leather. Mark

    Oxbo, this is the only other photo that I took. Hope to get better at the photography, lol.
  6. Thanks, I'm still a rookie, I need to learn how to make my beveling look good so it'll make my objects stand out more. When friends ask me to make something, my confidence isn't high enough yet to try it on theirs.
  7. Here's another notebook I made for a Co worker.
  8. Here's a notebook I made for a Co worker. I'll post again with the second one, it won't let me post both together.

    Thanks Chuck, hang in there you'll get it.I'm pretty new at leather work, I started last July. I timmed my self on this last one, it took me just over 10 hours from start to finish. Making the checkers and stiching is what took me so long. Lol. The checkers is two 5 to 6 oz pieces glued together.
  10. Good job, looks great!
