  1. Hey folks, I've got a project in mind and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. I am wanting to make a tooled leather lap board. I'd like to be able to use it for writing and working, and obviously a tooled leather piece isn't the best for that purpose. So what I was thinking was to pour a leveling hardening epoxy over the top of the finished leather piece to make it smooth and suitable for working on. Would this be possible? Any tips for making it work or any other ideas for this type of project?
  2. Hey folks, I am curious how you all prefer to put your tooling patterns onto your leathers, especially when it comes to floral or other intricate designs. Do you draw the design out on paper and trace it onto cased leather, or do you prefer to draw it directly on the leather? Also how do you go about making your designs and styles? I'm interested to pick your brains, so any tips or tricks are welcome! Thanks everyone,
  3. Okay, thanks for the help, everyone!
  4. Hey folks, I’ve been cleaning up my great grandma’s old Singer foot pedal machine. I’ve had some trouble identifying its model and wondered if anyone may know more than me. I’ve also been testing it out on leathers and have found that despite adjusting tensions, I can’t quite get the stitch to lock. I’ve looked at possibly attaching an electric motor to the wheel. Is there a way to convert this type of Singer to sew leathers? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
