    Bota - Leather Flask

    I bought the leather at Tandy Leather. It is 6 oz Veg-Tan Bellies. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/veg-bellies

    Form of the mold was simply two square pieces of 3/4 Plywood. I cut the shape out of one piece of the plywood with a jigsaw then routed the inner piece with 3/4 inch round over bit to make the sides curved. I sand the edges of the outer piece a bit, to make sure it had enough clearance for the leather thickness. I used a drill press with a small round sanding drum 80grit.

    Yup, Definitely not a Spanish Bota. I happen to be from Spain, and have many "Actual" Spanish Botas. Hmm, a new project for me....
