Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I got a new side in from Wickett and Craig today and I'm accumulating quite a stock of leather. I don't have a lot of room and have just been rolling my hides up and storing them horizontally on a shelf. I was wondering how you guys store your hides. Also, on a full side, any tips on how to cut them for the best use. I usually make a long straight cut somewhere near the middle of the side so I can get belts and straps and then cut pieces up from the belly. Any suggestions on getting the most from a hide?
