Leather Working Tutorials
Below are a selection of leather working tutorials. I will be adding more as time allows. Some of these talk about concepts that I wish I had known when I first started out in 1988. There are many ways to accomplish a task but to know the most efficient one is priceless. A great example is the basketweave tutorial. My basket pattern used to meander down a guitar strap like a snake. I could never keep it running straight. One day I attended a trade show and saw a demonstration on basket stamping and voila! No more crooked basket stamps!
