Makin' Leather is the bible of leather working. It details how to buy or make leather; what kind, size, and weight of leather necessary for any project; and how to cut, punch, and stitch leather. This guide even describes primitive methods using handmade tools. The patterns, photos, detailed drawings, and simple, concise instructions are easy for any novice to follow, and a great reference for the more advanced leatherworker. If you have ever considered doing leatherwork, Makin' Leather is a must - no leather hobbyist should be without it!
