Leather Workshop Videos:
David discusses the different areas of a vegetable tanned kangaroo skin and demonstrates how to trim a skin to start making a whip. If you were preparing a skin to cut lace you would also trim the leg and back areas.
David demonstrates how to pare (bevel ) strands of kangaroo lace for four plait round braids to make the braid smoother. In a four plait round braid the strands are always crossing each other, not laying along side each other so paring both corners on the flesh side works best.
David demonstrates how to pare (bevel ) strands of kangaroo lace for six plait and greater round braids to make the braid smoother. For six plait and up paring opposite corners allows the strands running parallel to lay in smoothly.
