I’ve never posted before but have followed for some time. I’d like some advice on leather for a strop. Where can I find leather that’s appropriate for making a strop and isn’t too expensive? I’ve looked on eBay and only found pre-made strops (stuck to pine) that are too narrow or short, or that don’t have the suede side up. I’d rather buy the leather and make the strop myself with a plywood backing for stability. Also: how thick should the leather be? I’m in the Houston area, in case anyone knows of a particular place here.
I can’t cut up my leather purse just yet and have no other leather lying around the house.
