Finishing soles


is a sole made from Baker Leather, which I import from England. The finish is achieved simply by rubbing the sole firmly as it dries with a wooden rub stick or a smooth hammer handle. There’s no wax or polish at all.
I haven’t rubbed/shined the area with pegs because I’ll have to sand the pegs smooth and that would destroy any finish I’d achieved.
