Hey I was wondering what the size of the leather you used was. I want to get into leather working and thought that this wouldn't be too easy. It will probably turn into a bunch of squarish bits of leather riveted together though. Thanks in advance.

9-10 Oz works well for this. If you want something very thick and ridged- and single ply, Id say 12+ ( like on my "Quinn" shoulder.)  If you will be riveting  tooled pieces together Go with a few overlapping layers of 6-7oz, it tools well enough and deep enough to keep the tooling while you shape/assemble and let dry.

If you wont be tooling( or are just stamping a little) you can use a few layers of 4-5 to get started, just make sure to overlap and rivet all the corners for strength :D  the lighter leather costs a bit less, and shapes with water more easily. a good sized single shoulder should be enough for a single shoulder piece like this.

hope this helps!

2 1/2 Oz is 1 mm thick(or 40 pts.), 5 oz. leather is 2 mm thick (or 80 pts.) 10 Oz. is 4mm thick and so on. Sorry, I keep forgetting that the US uses all those inches and wonkystuffs ( I wish we were metric, since having two sets of tools for everything is pretty annoying!).  Here is also a chart to help a little with that conversion stuffs! www.sbearstradingpost.com/Leat…

Amazing job... I like how your creation has a very mature and professionally realistic look... Like it belongs with a uniform or a elite member of some society..
Great stuff
