Excellent beginner project
This kit is ideal for a beginner to learn with or a veteran who wants something easy for a change. The price is nice and the instructions are clear. It is a simple build and the leather is beautiful. I got the Vintage Buffalo and assembled it in a few hours. Be prepared for the hole punching marathon. After assembly the finished bag was lovely but because the front and back pieces are laced together, it has about enough interior space to be a sandwich case. Not very practical. However, I took it apart and modified it. I selected a piece of deertan leather from my scrap box that with a little trimming became a nice gusset forming the bottom and sides between the front and back pieces. The deertan was slightly odd shaped but I was experimenting so didn't mind. I have been using the bag for 9 months now and it has developed a wonderful patina and has become very supple. 5 stars if it had been a more practical kit but I loved customizing mine and it was easy to do.
