LEATHERWORK ARTICLES
BY
DICK SHERER
SHERER CUSTOM SADDLES, INC.
www.sherersaddlesinc.com

For 15 years you have read the articles of master saddlemaker and author Dick Sherer in the Leather Crafters and Saddlers Journal. Every project Dick writes about is a real world example of work produced in his studio for clients or art shows. Dick's goal in writing is to educate and improve your leather work by describing the techniques used by accomplished professional artists and saddlemakers. Although leather workers of all skill levels will benefit from this knowledge, Dick's main objective is to move you from a basic level of leather craft to an advanced level of knowledge and skill.

Sherer's pointers and leatherwork articles are collections of studio tips acquired over five decades of working with leather. These tips will enable you to save time and money, and make your life easier at the bench.

The texts of articles are presented in Microsoft Word and PDF formats. Photos are in JPG format. Text and photos may be reprinted for personal use at the bench.
