the riggins are the next thing to work on. they are cut out to pattern according to the riggin position. then they are stitch grooved and skived. Next they are glued together and hung to dry. Once dry I will rivet the rigs and then sew them. The reason I wait for them to dry is so the tracks left by the sewing machine are left to a minimum. I want the saddle to look as clean as possible when I am done, it is up to the customer to make it look used not me.
