More leather questions…..I ended up buying a full hide. I have about 4/5 of it left and need to figure out how to store it given that I have very little room. I was going to fold it into a box, but apparently you’re not supposed to do that because it can crease. I’m not a leather shop, so I can’t leave it on a “horse.” What are practical ways for a woodworker to put aside a full hide?

By the way, Tandy Leather does not seem to have managed the hide well in that they did not have it flat or on a horse in the store. Instead, they folded it over and then rolled it loosely. So, there is a mild crease down the spine. Maybe I’m being unfair and this is typical?
