Here is the first post with video specifically made for homeschoolers.
I will show you here to make cable organizers that will keep your earphone and charger cables well contained.
It is a guidance for parents - your guiding of the kids will be required.
I will update this post as I get feedback/questions. Just leave your comment below this post.
First the requirements:
- A sturdy work surface - like a solid wood table. For tooling/stamping, you will ideally need a piece of granite / marble about 20mm (1") thick. These are sold at leathercraft suppliers, but you can also get free pieces from places that manufacture tomb stones and kitchen surfaces.
- A piece of leather - the thickness to start with would be 5 - 6 oz (the weight of one square foot of leather).
- A cutting surface like a kitchen cutting board - wood does not work.
- Any very sharp knife - you will see the one I use in the video.
- A scratch awl - just a sharp tipped tool to mark the leather, like scribing around your cardboard templates..
- A few stamping tools - typically sold by Tandy Leather.
