All of our technological innovations surprisingly have yet to render the briefcase or backpack obsolete. Even as an actor who ostensibly doesn’t need anything when I get to set, I end up carrying one with books and odds and ends and who knows what. In fact most men I know have decided for themselves where their allegiances lie: whether with the satchel/bookbag, the briefcase, or the backpack (pro tip: if you’re out of college and not distance bike-riding, try to avoid the backpack).
Gold Bark Leather of Instructables.com is all about connecting beginning leatherworkers to feasible projects that they’d actually like to own in the end, and this Bison Leather Briefcase looks very promising.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time looking over DIY briefcases in my day and I’m pretty happy with this one. Although I’d love to know of other patterns/designs that you love that I ought to check out. In the meantime, give this Instructable a whirl and let us know what you think!
