Hello, I am wanting to make a wood sided bag using some oil tanned leather I have around. My question is on construction. I would probably use Walnut for the sides. On something small as a phone case, somewhat bigger as a fire kit pouch would 1/4" be strong enough? And for larger bags such as a laptop or I pad bag maybe even a purse, do you feel 1/2" thick walnut would be structural strong enough. I am planning on drilling holes in the sides and sewing the leather to the wood. I have #69 nylon thread. Should this be ok? How far would you space the stiches? Lastly for now, would you skive the leather that I will cement to the wood edge or leave it the same thickness? Would it be better to sew something like every other hole around entire side and come back with a second thread sewn separately incase a thread is frayed or cut some way and the whole thing wouldnt loosen up or just cross stitch the sides with one thread? Would you cement over the thread to protect it from wear? I'm sorry, I know a lot of questions but I just like to have everything planned out and squared away before starting something new Thank you for any and all tops and advice!
