[BKARTS] paring leather: trivial question

	For those of those who pare leather for inlays or labels, if you
measure the thickness of the final product.  I pare the leather down to
.005 inch.  Is this about the thickness you get after paring, or is it
more, or less?  (I use a micrometer.)  The final product, after backing
with archival tissue,  is from .005 to .01 inch.
	Thanks, I'm just curious.

	The Belgian surrealist painter Renee Magritte entered a cheese store in
Brussels to purchase a wheel of Swiss cheese.  The owner pulled a wheel
from the front window, but Magritte said he preferred the one on the
back counter.
	?But they are identical,? the owner protested.
	?No,? Magritte insisted.  ?This one?s been stared at.?
