The New Briefcase

The New Briefcase

I needed a new briefcase... so I made one. With a little help from Instructables and YouTube I was able to complete my first leather project. Take a look.

Here is the completed case. It started with a vegetable tanned leather hide from Tandy leather. I purchased a very basic set of pricking irons, rivets, thread, needles and hardware along with the leather... that's it!

Double wrapped handle with a reinforced back bone. It should carry a load.

It took some time and some sore fingers but worth the effort. Thanks for taking a look please feel free to leave your comments below.
