I like the way you think !!!

like to idea of just using what nature intended.
Even when I was deep into "BuckSkinning", I did not do this but have old buddies who did and still, to a certain extent. Always thought it was pretty neat and with good results. Basically you are talking about "OAK" (vegetable) tanning process and there are books out their on how to do it as well as "Brain" tanning. I use to have an old Herter's book that explained the process. You need to do some "Frontiersman's" research. My compliments on your "Old-School" endeavors. ......

Good luck and;
Be Safe !!!
