Sa canvas area sa binondo across panda meron Ding. Real leather is somewhat costly but for your purpose pwede na synthetic, di naman mahahalata yan.

One time i got lost dyan sa may side streets near that robinsons place dyan sa marikina. There is this giant store that sells everything, bags, shoes, etc, leather and synthetic too. They have lots of colors ng leather in that store, its near the street that comes out to sta lucia felix ave but on the other side. Meaning i was coming from jp rizal crossing to cainta

Thanks, everyone.

Binondo is light-years away from me.

And I don't think I want to use fake leather. I know, no one will know...except me. And that's what counts.

Maybe I'll explore Marikina. There's still a few shoe shops. And, Ernie, that area you mentioned, I vaguely recall, has shoe shops. Hirap lang ng parking. Those streets have strict No Parking rules nowadays.

Ahhh...but works of art are never easy.

Ding,

Go to the Strip of leather stores along E. Dela Paz St. in Sto. Nino Marikina. From Sumulong hi way take a right at Shoe Avenue if you're coming from Cogeo going to Cubao. Make a left turn at the first intersection w/c is V. Santos then right at the 3rd street w/c is E. Dela Paz St. There you will find around 3 stores including a surplus leather shop w/c sells good leather around 280-350 per square foot of the thick variety you want. God luck! :thumbup:

Salamat for the tip Ernie and Ricky. Pag nagkapanahon, will get some. I probably won't need i until the end of the project. Baka madumihan yung leather if I attach too early.

Did some work on the top yesterday. First the mahogany. I got three pieces that I rabbet jointed with epoxy. Not worried about strength/weakness of the rabbet; I'll be gluing kamagong on top of it.

Image

For the kamagong top, I plan to have symmetrical pieces radiating from the center. So, first, went to the bandsaw and cut a bookmatch.

Image

Then, cut that into triangles, carefully studying the grain for each cut.

Image

If I do this again, I will probably plan more carefully and make patterns. My uwido style right now wastes more than half the wood!

Slow progress.

Here's the top trimmed and sanded.

Image

Next week, I'll cut the miter joint then pre-finish before gluing.
