I haven’t posted in awhile so thought I would put my journey here with my great idea to do a leather covered but pad. The first order of business was to get the pad, I chose the pachmayr grind to fit pad. Used the J&R jig to get the pad the correct angles. Then I figured I would get my holes cut in the pad. If the holes are not correct it’s back to square one. When doing a leather pad everything has to be rounded and not even the name on the pad can be left, as it will show through the leather. There is a big learning curve here, so practice every step until you have it down(remember you screw up you start over).ordered 2 of everything just in case.
