Excellent work; I would like to make this - it has a certain stylish charm. What oil did you use for the reverse of the leather and what glue do you use for this project?

what is that little tool that looks like a fork called? I've always stitched leather the hard way.

jessyratfink (author)Skwurlito2015-03-03

They are the BEST - called chisel punches. They make them both for thread and lacing. :D

It was very useful HP! Thank you for sharing! :)

That's great I'll have to get one. It sucks pushing those weird bladed leather needles through unassisted.
