I have a rabbit hide that I want tanned a I just wanted to use what I have around the house. Could just rubbing mink oil or leather softening oil work? E-mail me if you have any tips for me. Thanks Kris

WOW.... Kris,

Use your pc and find a copy of one of these 3 books (or other similiar titles)

Tanning Skins & Furs - James Churchill
Leather Makin' - Larry J. Wells
Home Tanning & Leathercraft - Kathy Kellogg

Store the bunny frozen in your freezer until after buying and reading one of these,
then thraw the little critter out and home tan to your hearts content. Any of the on-
line bookstores should be able to sell you any of these titles.

If you don't want to spend any cash on books or suplies, send the bunnie off to a
tannery and get it tanned for the price of one of these books.
