There are a few advanced leather working techniques that I cover in this video that you can carry across into other leather projects.

    Would you recommend a sealer at all, either a dubbin or acrylic. Have made my first 2 knife sheaths for a paying customer, and he wanted a plain veg tan finish. So unsure really, I did a coloured edge coat then applied a generous amount of dubbin, then polished it with a clean rag. The knives stay in his tucker box, so don't hang off belts or anything. He was wrapped with the products and didn't argue price.
    Is that something you would do or is there a better way?
    Taking into consideration that I have built my reputation in the upholstery game on turning out a product that will last.
    Cheers

    Just got the pattern download. Excited to give this a shot. Notice you use the electric iron to finish the edges. I'm struggling with finishing the edges of thin leather. In place of the electric iron, maybe a short video on an alternative to finishing thin edges. Thanks again Terrick for doing these.

    This video has inspired me to try my hand at a card holder/wallet design! I appreciate your passion for the craft and the videos are quite informative. The little tips and tricks you share will undoubtedly prove useful in the future. Many thanks from Montréal, QC, Canada!!

    Hello Terrick, I really like what you do, the extreme care you bring to your achievements.
    However, not everyone who is going to watch this video has any knowledge of how to handle the paring knife and may prune their fingertips if they leave them in front of the blade (11 '13 "). Our tools cut like razors and we are not allowed to make mistakes, so personally, I say never to let the fingers in front of the blade and prefer to hold them behind.
    Alain.
