Toothpaste is just an abrasive paste with flouride, artificial sweeteners, and other crud thrown in. I'm not sure what the grit is. I've used some toothpastes before that were sort of gritty. I could feel... something... crushing when I meshed my teeth together, almost like I had sand in my mouth. And if I remember my history channel correctly, the ancients would actually use sand to clean their teeth.

Have used toothpaste and a soft cotton cloth to polish scratches out of a pedestal mounted compass on my last boat.
After all, it is on the same order as jeweler's rouge.

Probably simple baking soda -- that's what's used in at least one of the "gritty" brands.

The one I use now is a piece of old belt glued to a board. I have, over the past 40 years, used the back of the belt that I was wearing (most common), the top of a boot, a piece of cardboard, and a piece of MDF. If you sharpen on a stone and are using the strop for final polish, forget the compound. The leather works fine without it (ask any barber). If you use the strop to maintain an edge (carving knives), the compound is helpful.

When I was a boy I went to a barber who would give you a haircut - and a shave - if you were in need.
Next to his chair was a strip of leather, tanned and finished on one side and buckskin raw on the other.
When he got to the point of doing the sideburns and the blocking on the back of the neck - he would take a straight razor and strop it on the leather - then he'd carefully swipe the offending hairs away from his creation.
That's been a while ago. About the same time that I last saw a copy of Police Gazzette.
sigh...

Sorry, it won't work. Strop need to be made professionally and you don't have the skills. Next thing you know, you'll be trying to make your own furniture and stuff.

Where can I find plans for making a strop? Is it best to use it hide side out or flesh side out? Is cow leather the best? How about horse, ox, pig, or mother in law?

Nix on the MIL. Some are too fine to be made into a mere strop; and the rest are either toxic or corrosive.
If you have to ask, then she's probably too corrosive for tool steel.

Well, yes. The strop-grade leather is grain orientated along spinal lines. Those selected elk are raised on very narrow farms with a north/south direction. They shave the elk on a regular schedule in order to pre-condition the leather. Elk shavers are a dying breed. That is why stropping leather is seldom used any more. I thought everybody knew that.

Since you seem to have such a balance from the left side of things, the following might give some pause for thought: <http://www.nysun.com/article/45705

It is not possible to exaggerate more than Ann Coulter.
Any organization claiming to engage in responsible journalism which includes her as a player has abrogated any legitimacy to such a claim.
