Good morning. I’m Layne. New guy here. I’m just getting into leather work. Picked up some veg tan/basic tools from Tandy, here in Philly, PA.
I’ve been a paramedic for the better part of 26 years, 5 of those were an Army medic.
I dabbled in blacksmithing, loved it, my mentor became ill and had to side line.
I have an unhealthy addiction to leather (LOL), love how things are made. I suppose, me, getting into leather work serves multi function, including, healing from past trauma/PTS and, hopefully, as I become proficient, make a side hustle, maybe, even an out from EMS, eventually.
Anyhow, that’s my story. I’m happily married to my best friend/soul mate, she’s on board with me doing this.
Hope this all finds you guys and girls well. Be safe, cheers all.
