I am building some mallets and I was going to put rawhide faces on them.
Normally, I just buy some rawhide sheets (usually the ones in the packs for dogs at the grocery store). Soak them in water for a couple hours and then stretch them over the mallet head and use brass tacks to attach them.
This time however the rawhide has been in the water for about 4 days and is nearly as stiff as Great Great Grandpa after 3 days at the funeral parlor.
What gives? this stuff doesn’t look any different than the other stuff I’ve bought and after it gets wet it still smells the same.
