Stroppity Stroppity Strop
"Life is but a series of experiments..." Sure. Only problem is most time I just do not research sufficiently before starting on whatever I do... Like yesterday's purchase of hides to make strops, in a bid to soften things up, I slathered it all in probably too much oil.
When the deed was done... I started to question myself, have I done it right. No, wait - is it even correct to go about prepping the leather this way.
Oh well how bad can it be.. Left it pressed down between 2 pieces of wood. Will see tonight...
to be continued...
