    Looks awesome, did use trubond?

    @Kendel I just used pickling salt, a fleshing knife, The tanning solution in the orange bottle and I just pieced together some wood for the stretcher. I’m not sure what trubond is.

    Looks terrific. Great job on the tanning. I think I may try a rugshell form with the head and make a full rug on my next one. I have been working on my tanning skills with coons this season so I don't screw it up.

    @GVS just be careful stretching it after it’s out of the solution. I had a section on the front right leg that slipped as I was tacking it for stretching. Other than that just be careful fleshing and good luck.
