Woodsmaster Vol 15 - Sticks, Stoves and Stitches
Join Ron Hood and a couple of his friends in another informative volume of the Woodsmaster Video series. In this video you will learn how to make Buffalo Hide Moccasins close-up from beginning-to-end from Trapping and Hide expert, George Michaud. Learn how to make a pattern from a foot (yours or other), learn the proper stitching techniques so you will not "walk off" the stitching once you begin to wear the mocs. Learn what materials to use and what a "glover’s needle" is good for. Learn an improvised thimble and how to prepare the sole for your sandals as well as other intricacies that will help you to make extremely comfortable footwear from thick rawhide. The techniques you learn from George can apply to any leather-working from mocs to anything you want to make with rawhide.
