How To Understand Leather Thickness
If you have ever shopped for leather or hide you probably know that their
thickness is usually given in ounces.
If you are confused how leather ounces translates into thickness,
it's actually quite easy: One ounce is equal to 1/64 of an inch
So, for example, if the weight of a piece of leather or hide is
said to be 4 ounces, that would mean you multiply 1/64 by 4, which
would equal a thickness of 4/64 of an inch. Reducing the fraction
down to the lowest common denominator, our example piece is 1/16
of an inch thick.

Since leather and hide often varies in thickness - even if it
has been processed to make it more uniform - the weight might be
given in a range, something like "4 to 4.5 ounces."
