Step one: preparation of the leather
First you need to cut 40 squares from the leather 2.5 X 2.5 cm. Then in the center of each square you need to punch a hole 1.2 cm in diameter.
For better adhesion he grinds the workpieces with 60 grit sandpaper.
Step two: gluing
The master used large aluminum washers, a stud and nuts as a clamp for gluing.
Washers and threaded rod must be coated with a very thick layer of wax to prevent them from sticking to the skin. Then apply glue to the leather blanks and install them on the hairpin. The skin absorbs the glue well and needs to be applied more.
Then he clamps the workpiece with a nut and leaves it until completely glued.
Step three: grind the handle
After the glue has completely dried, the master starts forming the handle.
First, it processes the workpiece on a belt sander.
Then he sets the workpiece into a lathe and grinds it. Sands with sandpaper.
Now you need to polish the handle and apply wax.
