      Tell me about leather tooling

      I inherited leatherworking tools a long while back and I'd like to learn how to tool leather. Anything you want to say that would be helpful or would answer the following questions would be sweet.

      -What are some good resources to learn from?
      -How wet is the leather supposed to be? (I think I got the right moisture level near the end of this trial)
      -What are the fork-looking tools for?
      -How do I make my lines stay?
      -How do I achieve more depth?
      -How do I make the bevel line smooth and not crappy individual stamps?

      Here's the test piece I did today, nothing fancy. The main problem I had was my outline disappearing, even though I went over it several times over several moisture levels with the swivel knife and then another tool.

      Thanks guys!
