Here is my first major leather working project. I made this with the careful instruction from @weaverleather. You can view the project here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmBCD-ijoSQ
I used the formula of white oak, walnut stain, ebonizing vinegar / steel wool solution (thanks @fine_woodworking March 2019 edition), ting oil and a final coat of shellac!
Why ebonize? It allows more of the wood show through.
I use FW’s online content all the time. And now .. drum roll .. I have my very own blog post there. Have a look see. 🙂
