The Quest for Deer Leather: Almost there!

Today I started on the 2nd hide that I have. I fleshed it and now it’s in the lime bath for a couple of days.

My son and I took the first hide out of the tanning solution and rinsed it. After that we hung in on the stretching rack to dry. After I’ve greased it, it will be ready to be made into a cow whip.

Here’s the pic:
