Tooled leather is often applied on desktop writing surfaces, wall, furniture panels and seating. Leather is sturdy, however the regular use and wear can cause accelerated degradation. Wood is commonly used as the substrate to which the leather is attached. The wooden substrate can also degrade affecting the stability of leather covering. It is often necessary to remove the leather to repair the underlying structural problems.
