This DIY kit comes with all the materials you need to craft your own 12 Inch Valet Tray. This leather kit is outfitted with corner snaps that make your finished tray very portable and versatile. Grab your Tool Pack and let this handcrafted kit lead you into the world of leathercrafting. This Crafter's Kit comes with links to detailed digital instructions, which will guide you every step of the way. The finished tray will be 12 inches square when flat, and approximately 9 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall when snapped into its tray position.
Leather dyes or other coloring solutions are not included with this kit. If you would like your finished piece to be a color other than the natural color of leather, please order leather dyes, paint, or markers from other sources.
In order to craft this piece, you will need this Crafter's Kit, your Tool Pack, and the following items:
Your choice of artwork will be included as a tooling pattern, with instructions on how to tool the specific design. You can even choose up to 3 of your favorite runes to be drawn into a custom bindrune and edited into the default Knotwork circle tooling pattern, for a personalized touch.
See the last photo in this listing for a reference of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet. These runes were used by the ancient Germanic people (and early Viking Age) for recording information and channeling spiritual energy. You can choose up to three of these runes to be added to your Knotwork tooling pattern as a bindrune. A bindrune is a symbol that is made up of multiple runes, generally used as a symbolic or ritual charm. You can also simply tell me the intended purpose or story that you want to imbue in the piece (protection, health, prosperity, courage, etc) and I will choose the Bindrune best suited to your purpose.
