estimates for bison hide

Submitted by Mark Micchio on 02/24/2004 at 17:39. ( )

I have a bison hide with a bad home tan. It was probably not fleshed enough before tanning (looks like the membrane is fairly intact), and not finished (softened) at all. It's not rotten or anything, just stiff as a board. I think I could leave it the way it is, but I want to fix it up. I thought about using pumice, followed by dampening the hide and stretching and/or cabling it to soften it, but I am not sure my wife and I are up to the tasks.

I would appreciate an estimate on how much it would cost to have this hide (which is 90 x 80) finished.
