TLE: Using a Chisel On Multiple Plies Of Leather

Miriam Schlabach |

We’ve had quite a few questions on how to punch through multiple layers of heavier leather with a stitching chisel and, if you punch the pieces separately, how do you make sure the holes line up. In this video, Chuck shows how to do this using a holster as an example. The leather is an 8/9 oz. and there are three layers, with both sides of the holster and the welt. We hope this is good information for you and helps answer some of those questions!
