Mr. Stohlman knew his stuff, and was not afraid to share his knowledge.
There are those who say the projects presented are a bit out of date, but the idea, as stated by the author himself, is that you will learn the methods, techniques, and leathers to make cases, lines or unlined, soft or hard, and in a variety of shapes, and custom fittings. Leather case for your bowling ball? Shot putt? ball shaped purse? same general methods, clear information and instructions!
The books start with simple projects in the first volume...subsequent volumes include suitcases, fancy bags and custom cases, Instrument, Guitar cases, and how to create protective wear for just about anything you might want.
These volumes also include information on handles, how to make, install, and decide which handle and why!
