Leatherworking Tools and Techniques Explained in Detail
Maria Teresa Lladó i Riba and Eva Pascual i Miró - All books by this author

Creating handsome leather products is an enjoyable and rewarding hobby, but it’s a craft that requires training and specialized tools. This attractive volume presents beginners with the information and instruction they need to get started. Following a brief illustrated history of leathercraft, the authors describe how animal hides are processed into various types and grades of leather. The heart of this book begins with an introduction to leatherworking tools—the mallets, awls, bevelers, groovers, special needles, coloring and dying agents, and other equipment beginning leatherworkers need to assemble. Next, the authors demonstrate techniques and the use of tools for embossing, cutting, sewing, and shaping. They conclude with detailed, photo-illustrated instructions for eight different projects, including—
  • A beautiful leather basket
  • An elegant serving tray
  • A unique clock face
  • A stylish picture frame
  • A handsome set of scrapbook covers, and several more.
This attractive and instructive volume features hundreds of enlightening color photos and a useful glossary.
