Product Description

This is one of the most highly attended demonstrations that Bobby produces. If you are interested in learning various methods to produce professional quality edge finishes, then this is your class! He utilizes close up cameras and a large screen HD TV to demonstrate each step of a number of burnishing techniques. His demonstration of the most popular burnishing machines like Cobra, Weaver and Fantastic Burnisher provides an excellent opportunity to observe their practical applications. Instruction will cover subjects like: types of edgers, sharpening, techniques in hand burnishing, the use of various burnishing solutions, edge dyeing, burnishing with a Dremel and dealing with exotic and chrome tanned leather. Time permitting, there will be an open Q & A session at the end of the demonstration where Bobby will answer questions regarding any subject which may interest the class.
