You need to give more info and pictures. Having to go to youtube is not the answer.

Beautiful purse, I liked the video but would have appreciated some narration or captions to explain the steps and tools and materials. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but sometimes words are better. From the finished picture it looks like the purse can hold a smartphone, but that was not clear from the start when you were measuring the pieces. Is the green lining also leather or another material? What type of glue were you using on the different areas? What type of finish did you apply and why did you wait until the end? Why not finish the wood before sewing on the leather?

Thanks for posting

OK, I know that genuine masters of crafts are gathering in this forum, so I’m always in the dilemma of how to provide enough information without being boring. It seems that in this case, I did not really evaluate the best.
The story inside the video, in my opinion can be useful, but it’s often overstretched, so the video gets boring and slow. As far as the inside of the wallet is concerned, it can be organized according to its own needs, and it is also made of leather. Leather and wood are glued with PU adhesives for universal use. Finish is tung oil. I finish the wood after gluing and sewing the leather to make sure that the adhesive will hold well.

Thank you all for comments, and if you have any further questions, I will answer with pleasure.
