Re: 89 BOOTS TUTORIAL [by Blackwood Bat]


check to see if you have a leather factory store in your area. leather is something that is best not purchased sight unseen. you're probably looking at a 10 oz leather. chap sides are usually this thick

Re: 89 BOOTS TUTORIAL [by Blackwood Bat]


Yeah,what Dave said :up

I got mine at a local shoe/leather repair shop. If I could get more for people,I would,but it's rare that they have it. In two years I managed to get it only three times,and not a lot of it...maybe a 3'x4' sheet and that was pretty expensive.

The best advice I can offer is do a lot of detective work and see what you can find. I called and went to many places for a few weeks until I found what I thought would work well.

Of course,this is just what I used. I'm sure you can... A)find something else that is acceptable 2)get thinner leather and double it up for stregnth,or D)just use this tutorial as a guide and come up with a new,better or different way using a different style of leather.

Maybe use thin leather on the outside and a lining on the inside,with some kind of foamy stuff sandwiched between the two. That's probably how the real boots were made anyway,but I don't know.
Again,having no experience or knowledge of making boots or sewing,this is the best way I could think of,but I'm sure it can be improved upon.

Re: Blackwood Bat's '89 Boots Tutorial


I still have your email Bro. I dropped the ball and forgot to get you pics. Blackwood did mine (based off this tutorial).

Why don't you start with these emoticon
