CountrySide had a couple articles about 3 or 4 issue back. I will try to find the issue # when I get a chance.

The articles were about soaking the hides an a acid solution and sounded pretty easy.

Those articles on tanning were in the November 99 and January 00 issues of Countryside.

I am pretty sure the Countryside Bookstore carries a book on tanning hides. Just use the button on the homepage.

I used to do fur tanning with sulfuric acid, borax and washing soda, I can look up the exact measurements if you can't find other recipes. Also made that soft doeskin with white oak and deer brains once, I don't think I have that recipe anymore, but it did work well.
