I wanted something that would give me the shape of the seat without losing it when covered which is what was happing with my old saddles as I had to pad it all out so I could counter sink the skirts etc. This design seems to have resolved this issue and now gives a crisp finish while maintaining the overall look.
I'm now on to mould 2 as the air vents need tweaking slightly but I have taken some in progress pictures. Just remember this process is expensive, time consuming, will test your patience and your head might not have any hair left on it from all the tearing it out but hey I have a little saddle tree to show for it, lol! :)
Finally I just had to take a quick pic of the stitch markings my little home made wheel is producing, I made the most of this set being entirely hand cut as tooling leather holds so much more detailing that kangeroo lace doesn't. Thankfully I also had one of my quilted saddle pads already made up to go with the saddle so it was one more thing off the 'to do' list.
