Here is my first vest. I used 6-7 oz leather and tooled the border. I ended up with a great deal on some lamb skin so I lined it with that:) this is really heavy but being a heavy use vest it should break in nice. I wet it really good and rolled the sections in multiple directions to break the grain and start the initial break in to make it flexible. I started having my doubts and started thinking it was to heavy, but when it was all finished and I put it on it felt like it should and had plenty of flexibility.

Anyway well I popped my cherry:) hahaha now I am making another one:)
