Leather Stitching Horse
Made from Hard Maple
I made this for a friend who is a leather craftsman. I fashioned this horse from one brought over from England that is well over 100 years old.
I left the leather portions of this build up to the owner, who will add his touch by wrapping the jaws with leather and add a leather strap that will connect the foot latch to the movable jaw. (clamps are holding everything in place until the leather strap is completed)
Eventually, a sheep's wool pad will be added for a cushion.
