The Tanning Rack is a crafting station found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Tanning Racks are used to make leather strips or leather, which are in turn used to craft armor and weapons and are a crucial materials for smithing items from scratch. Tanning does not increase the smithing skill.
Animal pelts for creating leather can be looted from dead animals (fox, deer, bear, etc.) or purchased from hunters roaming the wilds and some town vendors. Unless the leather or leather strips are needed for use in crafting, it's best to make sure that converting every animal pelt in one's inventory to leather is worthwhile. Several pelts are usually worth more than leather when selling to vendors, and leather also weighs more than the pelts it is created from.
