After a long and grueling wait, I finally received the supplies I ordered for the craft shop. After three practice runs, I made a leather book cover for my son’s boy scouting manual. I’ve exceeded my admittedly low expectations. I think I actually carved a passable fleur-de-lis on the front. I progressed pretty rapidly from there. I’m currently making him an attache case that will be all leather. I’ve even included some decorative elements. Go me.
