(State College, PA)
This is the first time I have ever tried to rivet.
I found a pipe cover and there were three perfect sized divots in the cover.
Once I drilled the holes into the depressions, I carefully lined-up the leather and riveted-away!
Not bad for my very first time!
I wanted to make my own clasp, however, clasp making was my next self-taught class.
The only part I wished I did, was took a picture before I finished the piece.
