Here the heel edge is being sanded.
After being previously glassed.
The edges are sanded after the glassing process.
Before the edges are set, the lip on the top of the welt is ploughed off.
Then the edges are set using a hot edge iron.
Soles and heel top pieces were glassed and sanded ready for inking.
And so, after 2 intense weeks of hardcore shoemaking, we are left with one final day. It's been a journey and I hope the students are happy. Exhausted,but happy.
Until tomorrow, happy shoemaking.
