A tanner's shop is used to make leather from a butchered animal skin and parchment from animal skin with milk of limev0.42.01. A tanner's shop is operated by any dwarf with the 'tanning' labor enabled. Each butchering job yields a single hide, and each unrotten hide yields one piece of leather - regardless of whether the animal is a kitten or an elephantBug:3732.
- Tan a hide.
- Make parchment.
- The 'tan a hide' job is automatically triggered after the game notices that there is a skin to be tanned within a certain distance of the tanner's shop. The player can turn off this behaviour by going into the rders menu, choosing orkshop Orders, and then turning Auto an off.
- If you have turned Auto Tan off, your manager (nits, anager) can manually queue "Tan a Hide" jobs. This is also useful if for some reason Auto Tan ignores a skin.
