WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This manual is written for individuals that have some basic understanding of leather work.
You should already know how to:
Sharpen a knife.
Properly use an edger.
Polish the edges.
Run or have access to a good leather stitcher.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR
Read and browse the entire book before beginning a saddle.
The first 120 pages of the SADDLE MAKER’S MANUAL is a step by step process for building only one saddle. The information is in the correct order.
Variations of styles and designs contained in the last 60 pages may require some modification of the chronological order laid out for the first saddle.
The variations of section 2 will illustrate the changes of order required.
Always keep in mind that the greatest factor in the success of the students I have had the pleasure of teaching is their desire.
“Desire without innate talent is better than great talent without desire.”
I greatly appreciate your purchase of this manual, and it is my sincere desire that it serves you well.
