    My babiche seat

    That looks very good Here is my last week attempt at babiche seats. 1/8" leather cord, forty feet. The seat is rectangular and that made it tough. As you see, it is not an outstanding job but it is quite firm. One more to make and I might try your method.

    Great site

    Thanks, that is a great site for babiche. For those like me who did not know, rawhide is different than leather. Rawhide stretches when wet and shrinks dry. Leather is tanned and will only stretch. I got my materials from Tandy Leather. Lots of selection.

    No worries....and I'm as good at forgetting things as anybody (I'd admit to getting "old" but I prefer to call myself "more mature" and I'll admit that sometimes I'm "memory challenged"....gotta be politically correct LOL LOL).
