Deer Leather Pictures

If you’re keeping track of the days, today is day 10 of the project. I took the hide out of the tanning bath and snapped a couple of quick photos to record the progress. I sliced off a strip from the edge yesterday and it looks like it’s almost tanned through and through. I plan on taking it out of the solution over the weekend and finish it up.The chestnut extract has given this hide a really nice color. The best part: no foul smell anymore!
