I had a beaver hide I had fleshed and dried in a hoop stretcher. I fleshed it on the beam and then run it under the wire wheel. Today when I took it down it felt alittle thick and was like a sheet of plywood so I took out the drimmel tool ( don't own a good flesher) and started in on it.Usually that doesn't bother me because I put it in a willow hoop and put it on the wall but I want to tan this one to use as a throw on the couch. I took it down until I came to a brown layer. I have a tanning video and chemicals that will more than likely be here tomorrow and should have waited but I was bored. How badly did I screw up? Should I have left it where it was?
