Questions on Making Leather Armor

Postby Mr. D » Thu Apr 08, 2004 12:18 am

Ok, I've recently been interested in making some leather scale armor for my torso, and I have some questions. First of all, what should I buy my leather and hardware from; do you have a link to a good website? Second, what weight of leather should I use? Third, what I'd like the most is a webpage(s) that details the making of leather armor and/or has a bunch of tips on the same subject.

Thanks!

You might have to look around a bit, but all the answers are there. If not, just ask.
