    HELP! Watch strap question.

    I've been making some watch straps and have been using diamond chisels to make stitching holes. However, only 1 side turns out right and the other side ends up uneven. What could I be doing wrong? How can I fix this?

    Also, what is the best kind and thickness of leather to use on the backside of the strap?

    Thanks.

    Daniel

    Find leather stitching videos on YouTube. There are too many to list. They will explain. Not as easy as it looks! Enjoy the journey

    thanks but I've watched dozens. I guess practice makes perfect. Excellent job with your straps

    It's challenging because you need to be sure the hole on the "bottom" of your leather is perfectly aligned in all three axes from the "top" hole. I agree... practice makes perfect. The "right" tools are big for success as well. Good luck, my friend! :)
