Deer Leather Project Started

Yesterday evening I began the long process of turning salted deer hides into bark tanned deer leather. This should prove to be an interesting, smelly experience. I’m experimenting with one hide for now. I’ll post some updates as I progress and maybe a few pictures as well. As you might imagine, my lovely wife isn’t all that thrilled with this new project…
