As an architect (creative designer) who loves leather work, I decided to design and make my own stitching pony with three important criteria in mind, practicality, quality and beauty. what you see is the result. As I have more material, I decided to sell a few on Etsy . The jaws are layers of birch compressed and glued together (professionally) and curved to certain angle to provide a natural grip. Hardwood base can hold the jaws in the middle or one side for comfort and preference. black stainless still screws, bolts and wing nuts are best quality and leathers are attached to the grip area for softness. you can also swivel the jaws as desired. walnut stain is used for finish, or it can be clear natural color. the height is 45cm and base is 40cm. I can change the measurements if you wish.
