First things first, was research. I have unfortunately lost all the bookmarks that I had then, so I can’t show you the actual sites that I used, but I can find more.

There are obviously a lot of books at Tandy, many of them written by the super talented Al Stohlman. You can buy ebooks of them as well. I wanted to find them in the library, because I was really interested in the figure carving book since most of the instructions online were about how to tool in the Sheridan (lol) style.

Youtube, as always, was a great source.

Bit of an overview.

This one shows more how to tool something.

Basic Leather Carving video put out by Tandy.

There is a leatherworking forum, with lots of neat stuff on it.
