In this week’s The Leather Element video, Chuck has some more handy shop tricks that will hopefully give you some good tips for your own leathercrafting! Some of the things Chuck goes over are how to cut an oblong and an English point if you don’t have those punches on hand. We hope this is helpful information for you and we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
We thought everyone could use a good laugh so Chuck compiled some outtakes and bloopers from filming The Leather Element and project videos! We hope this puts a smile on your face and gives you a chuckle. We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled videos next week and join us for a Facebook Live with Chuck on Tuesday, March 31, 2020!
Adding a liner to your leather projects opens a world of possibilities! A liner can be used to add a pop of color to your product or maybe you just need to double up on your leather to reach the desired thickness needed for your project. Either way, lining leather is a simple process and as Chuck says ” the sky is the limit”! In this video, Chuck lines a pouch with some of our new pigskin lining leather.
In part two of Chuck’s shop tricks, we get some pointers and tips from how to recycle dull blades to storing everything you need to dye leather in a small space! We hope this is helpful information and gives you some good tips for your shop!
