Here’s a photo progression of the work I accomplished today.
This is the design for the pair of boots I’m making. It’s on top of the leathers I’ll use and off to the right are the pattern pieces for each bit of inlay.
I’ve marked each inlay pattern piece onto the appropriate leather, next I’ll cut them out and skive all of the edges.
Each piece has been cut and skived. I still enjoy watching a seemingly random pile of little bits of leather come together to form a beautiful boot top.
And… this is what my floor looks like after an afternoon of skiving.
