I’m planning to reupholster the seats in my trucks soon, and I’ve got the usual questions to ask about which types of leather are best, how does weight make a difference, etc., etc… Beyond that, I’ve always wanted to know a little more about working leather. Can anyone suggest a decent leatherworking site or two? Googling hasn’t netted much.
Only one search engine? Enter “search engines” in Google and get a big handfull.
Seems to me that each search engine favors certain sites and/or give completely differents sites that another.
Thanks, but I’m still getting mixed results. Most of the groups I’ve found only meet in real life (and I did find the web page for a group that meets at the local Tandy store), but the few message boards I found have been dead for a year or more. I’ve found a few SCA and fetish sites, but I don’t want to crash someone’s party with a bunch of off-topic questions.
You could try http://www.leatherforums.com/ but they tend to be more about the fashion side rather than the craft side. It’s worth a shot though. You have to register to post.
You are not really doing leatherwork per se, you are doing upholstery with leather.
Try upholstery, leather DIY… you should find a bunch of info.
Good point, tailake, I’m asking on an upholstery site, and I’ll probably drop by the Tandy franchise for the more leather specific questions.
