DoveTill Upgrade

I count our upholsterer Doug Carman as a friend. He gave me half a garbage bag full of leather scrap several years ago. Today I finally put it to use.

Using an iron set on low heat, I ironed the leather under a sheet of paper. I then used transfer tape to adhere the till to it. My Veritas striking knife did an excellent job flush trimming around the sides.

I think this will be a nice way to protect my drawer bottoms. The chisels don't slide around as readily, and the leather deadens the sound they make when I put the chisels away.

And it's super posh.
