Picture of leather coaster
hi my name is James, i have been working on leather for a while and thought since there isnt much of leather crafts up i thought i'd add some up. this here is a leather coaster i made and will be showing you how to make. this project is pretty cheap and can be a great gift for anyone. on this coaster i decided to use a wood plank design many other designs my be made and used for this project.
 
list of things needed for this project:
1x leather circle
1x swivel knife - a bit optional but it yields better results
1x ball and spoon modeling tool
1x craft sponge- not one u clean ur dishes with
paper towels
1X ruler or steel square ruler
leather dyes- sort of optional depends on look that you want
leather super sheen
brushes
winged divider - optional but again really makes it a easier project
wood slicker- option but sells the project

PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTION BEFORE STARTING THE PROJECT

Step 1: Leather choice

Picture of leather choice
in order to crave, cut, mold, or do anything with leather u must have a general idea ready. now i had the idea to make a leather coaster and make a wooden pattern.

now for the first step choose your piece to work on and inspect for problems such as unwanted dents and or discoloration.

Hi,

I was browsing on the site the other day and I saw this instructable. I loved it!

Then I decided to try and and I made a little tray for my leather tools with the same pattern.

I came across this instructable the other day, and decided that I could probably do this. So I tried it, and here are my results. I used a brush to apply the dark brown leather dye to help simulate the wood grain.
