hi all i am in the proses of building another harness so i thought i would do a step by step acount on how i build one from start to finish. i am not a trained leather worker i am self tought but this is my way. i have only just started this tonight so have only got a little of it done but will ad pics and write ups at a later date.

 

hears a few tools that i will need to start with

130220131209_1_zps7148e543.jpg

this is a strap cutter

130220131201_zpsde57b89d.jpg

edge bevler

hawl

hole punch

130220131204_1_zpsa38ecb6f.jpg

adjustable stitch groover

130220131205_1_zpsec5ffaa3.jpg

burnishing wheel/slicker

130220131206_1_zps7430ecbc.jpg

over stitch wheel

130220131208_1_zpscca38a4e.jpg

 

right hears where we start you choose the leather you wont and collour then get the strap cutter. i need 2 strips at 3/4" and one at 1" so set it at the required size and cut out ya straps of leather.

130220131197_zpsf7516468.jpg

130220131198_zps9e2f54ce.jpg

all the straps are cut out now ready to be cut to the sizes you need and dye and burnish the edges but i will cover all this to moz this is the 1st little bit i can show you all as its a little late to stat anymore as i am tired and don't wont to make any costly mistakes.thanks for looking and reading this more to follow :thumbs:

2nd part is after you have cut the straps you take the edge bevler and round off the edges like so front and back

130220131199_1_zps4793a54a.jpg

130220131200_1_zps41b304d2.jpg

 

now we dye the edges once they have dride we wet the edge and burnish you just rub the wheel back and forth till the edge goes hard and shines thhis compacts the edg of the leather and helps protect from the weather

140220131212_zps4ed0af1a.jpg

140220131213_zpsf62dbfc0.jpg

sorry rubbish pic but the edge is burnished

140220131214_zpsbd18a173.jpg

strips all done now we start to put together the harness start with some holes for the rivets

140220131217_zpsde4a04bd.jpg

140220131218_zpse96130e6.jpg

140220131219_zps307184e5.jpg

then you get a this as the result a couple of y shaped leather straps

140220131220_zps12ee5c50.jpg

then take ya adjustable stitch groover and make the lines in the leather so the stitching will sit lower

140220131221_zps911986c6.jpg

Very true Gaffa, your using methods and tools that have been passed down to us from 100's of years ago, so it would be rude not to pass it on.

 

Keep it alive my friend.
