The costs of tools and supplies involved in leathercraft is small compared to the value of the product which can be produced. Very few tools are required to be purchased to start in leatherworking. This book will give you a list of the minimum needed tools as well as recommended different tools.

 Once you learn the methods and tooling to basic leathercraft, you are not limited to the projects you can create! You could conceivably turn the leathercraft hobby into a full time profession just using any of the projects in this book.

I know people that would pay handsomely for a custom made Book Cases, but no one can be found to do reasonable work for a fair price. I feel it would be possible to establish oneself in a leather book covering business if you became proficient in this art!

No matter if you are selling your work or giving it as valuable gifts, leatherwork is like wine, it gets more valuable with age.
