    Leather Underbust Harness

    The secret to custom work are mistakes are called either one of a kind or personalization. The color is excellent, you nailed that part. People try to get a perfect even coat and that is so average, that you may not have been happy with it. The style I give you two thumbs up. You will enjoy this craft so much more when you learn about the different thicknesses in terms of oz and mm. Have fun, you just started a life long legacy, we dont live forever, but you will make things that almost will... welcome to the leather club and find a site called deviantart.

    Great piece. Also heres were more advice comes in. Tie up the hair, lose the gloves, shop apron to keep loose clothe away, NO jewelery, and last but not least, contact tandy and ask for a leather weight chart so you can determine the right thickness for future projects. Youre just getting startes young lady, and yoir project is fabulous. I was trained by my father when i was four, we're both autodidactic and ive been doing since then. Get yoir hands on a starter kit from Tandy, you want one and it will help you step ip your game by leaps and bounds.

Drop by instagram #s.b.standard.leather and look at yoir potential. Welcome to the Leather community young lady...

    Great advice. Leather aprons are almost mandatory around power tools, as is safety glasses or the infamous plastic face mask. I wouldnt turn on an idustrial styled or actual tool without them. Safety is number one priority. Also, get a tanker style work bench with the draws on both sides. You can see one on instagram #s.b.standard.leather where he shows his set up. Just saying...

    Go to Tandy's web page and the have starter kits at good prices, better when you catch it on sale. I was taught this craft at 4 yrs old and im almost 50 now. You never get tired of creating things for yourself, for sale, for family and significant others. Anyone can by some junk made not in America, but, when you hand make a quality item that demands a premium, and you gice it to a parent, spouse or anyone special; they strut your one of a kind art work like a peacock with all its feathers on display... believe you me, you wonr regret getting yoir first set. Then come back here for ideas, postings, youtube tutorials etc and show yoir work... welcome to the firat day of rhe rest of yoir life. Take a peak at instagram #s.b.standard.leather for ideas...
