How else are we supposed to learn about the wonderful minutiae and technology of leather working?
I only understood about a third of Tim Hardy's post...
Sorry if my post became too technical, but with nearly 30 years at this game since training at the Cordwainers college in London (Leathergoods, Saddlery, Light goods/ Wallets, Case making, Luggage etc) and having subsequently made a wide variety of leather goods with a passion for tradition and maintaining the core skills, one becomes a little obsessed by it all.
For example, I have just finished recreating an old fishing reel case which involved a whole host of techniques too numerous to mention here but the full story will appear on my new blog soon.
Any time you have a question that needs answering, feel free to run it by me.
