AltaAndina posted a topic in Finished Leather GoodsAlta Andina crafts handmade mutli-use rolls. They are for sale on our website: https://altaandina.com/products/ Our tool roll can be used for almost anything. Fits a 12 inch wrench. Each slot can be sized as big or small as needed. Great for woodworking sets, chisel sets, bonsai sets etc. Also works great for paint brushes or art supplies. Our art rolls can also be used for pens and pencils, brushes, etc. We haven't played with putting tools in our art rolls yet, but we'd love to see how you use them! We do all our work by hand. Hand stitching, hand hammered copper rivets, hand burnished with beeswax. All full grain, vegetable tanned leather (quebracho, mimosa blend).
fsmassey posted a topic in All About LeatherGreetings from California! I'm on a hunt to find the most practical, durable, and functional pair of boots for hiking/outdoor living. Still trying to understand all that I can about the leather, I believe I understand most of what I should know about shoe designs. Finished Leather boot: http://www.redwingheritage.com/boots#&f=&m=/detail/9016-heritage-us/9016-red-wing-heritage-mens-beckman-boot-cigar Unfinished Leather boot: http://www.redwingshoes.com/red-wing-shoe/899-red-wing-shoes/899-red-wing-mens-8-inch-boot-brown What I'm looking for is the leather that will have the most longevity (through maintenance, of course), will stand up to the elements better (dry heat, snow, heavy rain, sloshing through puddles, snow), and will of course just endure the everyday wear and tear. Also, a side question about conditioning leather; Whats the word on using petroleum jelly to waterproof either finished or unfinished leather? (In case of dire situations where proper oils and treatments are not available)
