DIY Leather Wet Mold for Circle 8" inch Leather Valet Tray

This 3-piece DIY kit set is perfect for making beautiful leather valet trays. We use 1" thick marine grade plywood. It is unlacquered and does not need to be lacquered due to the properties of the wood and glue type. We have used many molds hundreds of time for years with no issues!

These wet molds are currently available in sizes that can fit up to either 6.5oz or 12oz of veg leatherPlease let us know in the "Order Comments" at checkout which size you would like. If you do not indicate a preference in your order comments, you will receive the 6.5oz size. With either size, if you wish to use lighter weight leather you can simply add felt or other material to the back of the leather to help compress the leather fully around the mold.

How-To Steps:

  1. Cut leather piece about 1.5" to 2" inches wider than the tray size. So if making a 8" tray, cut a roughly 9.5" leather circle.
  2. Soak leather in warm water. About 5-10 minutes or until completely soaked.
    • Natural unfinished leathers soak quickly. Bridles and finished leathers may take longer to fully soak.
  3. Place leather over the inner mold, and then place the outer mold on top of the leather. Push outer mold down with hands or clicker press to compress the leather around the inner mold.
  4. Place clamps on edges of outer mold and wood base.
  5. Let sit for 24 hours until dry.
