I have wanted to figure out leather working for some time now. The problem was always that I didn't have the correct tools. So at some point, I got some super basic pointers & just went for it, I grabbed an old belt strap from my buddies saddle shop and made a bevel punch with a metal rod, and a grinder. The cuts are made with an exacto knife, and the circle punch stipple effect, was from a metal punch and hammer. The process turned out to be good therapy, and a nice way to wind down from the long workdays.
