    The quality of the final image is AWSOME.

    I have really enjoyed watching your videos. I started tooling leather about 2 months ago and your instructions have been a huge help for me. I am looking forward to watching more of your work.

    @hndyman10 Well there is going to be more than one number. I would try giong to hide crafters and looking.

    @PiratePicard I use a product called barge cement. Then I use a sewing machine with a diamond shaped needle tip and a roller foot.

    Your local sewing shop can explain those needles and roller foot machines to you 🙂

    Otherwise use rivets.

    I’ve just start 1 month ago and I have a question for you, what type of glue do you use to put patch on a leather vest?

    And thanks for the video!

    @TheWaggaBloke It’s sad that my camera is so bad. It really blurs the tattoos something fierce but I get all my work done at Eternal Art in Santa Clarita California by the owner Adam Guyot. If you see him, be sure to tell him that I heard in 2012 the aliens are going to take over but that I am pretty sure they are gonna leave the tattooists alone cuz hell, even aliens love good ink 🙂

    I really like your style. You are easy to listen to and therfore easy to learn from. I just got started into leatherwork and carving leather and anything I can find to learn from is just making my day.

    Thanks very much Dave for putting this stuff up on YouTube for people like me to find. I hope I can find more of your work to learn from so thanks again for all your work and effort to help others learn this as well.

  19. comment number 19 by: Lagartija219

    Cooll dude! Good stuff. I will have a go at this as I too am sick of all this out there!Thx for sharing this!

    @thechurchofdave I might have to try the classifed idea because the closest thing to a tandy leather around theres parts is like a good five and a half hour drive…

  21. comment number 21 by: thechurchofdave

    @thusspokethepuppet I have not looked to see where you are from but start out by placing a classified ad saying you want to buy some leather tools. I found lots of tools that way 🙂 Or you can try Tandy Leather as well.

    Ive always been one of the high risk people you mentioned and this video has inspired me for some odd reason to try and use art as a coping mechanism, so really as horrid as this is going to sound thank you from the bottom of my heart mate. Now I just need to find somewhere to purchase the tools and materials that is not eBay

    After watching this video and the Platos cave reloaded video I feel obligated to leave a comment. Im trying my best to not sound like an ass kisser here but I really feel the need to thank you, some of the things you said really struck a chord with me and frankly thats not the easiest thing in the world to do.

    This is the best leatherworking tutorial I’ve been able to find. Thanks! There was a lot of information here.
