I kept losing my bone folder so I made a new one out of some Proofgrade walnut hardwood. Drew up a design I wanted in Illustrator, cut out on the laser, a little hand sanding to taper and round the edges. Job done! There’s something so satisfying about making a tool yourself in just a few minutes.
These handy little tools were traditionally made out of bone and they’re made for creasing and folding leather, but I mainly use it to open up pockets in wallets and such. I wanted a “finger” point to be able to get down into the corners better and it works fantastic.
