    There are some talented leather workers here, so I thought I would start a thread for them to show off their work.
    Don’t be shy, show your stuff!

    Probably the wallet I make the most. My sisters friends all wanted one after seeing hers.

    A batch of stuff I made up one weekend to try my luck selling on the forum. Top row is all pocket slips natural veg, W&C Chestnut, and shark skin. Then just some simple card holders and two wallets.

    A pouch sheath for a folding knife that rides extremely low so it doesn’t dig in your back. Made this one for a coworker

    Favorite way to carry a E01! Designed this one so only my lanyard sticks out of my pocket very discreet fixed blade sheath.

    Here’s the contest sheath I made for @rdrogers bluegill. I lined this one and put a 2.2” ulticlip on

    And here is my latest custom order that shipped out this week. Space grey tiger thread with 3.5oz black English bridle Wicket & Craig leather wallet and matching pocket organizer for a knife and pen.

    Most of my work is wallets and sheaths. I’m messing with a bag idea right now and my sister wants some sandals so still trying to figure that one out. The custom wallets are probably the most fun for me since most of my customers can’t find what they want in stores and I just get to design a fully custom one off wallet until I get what’s in there head on paper. Or I get sent a picture of something and have to design it backwards with ok to no measurements. it’s a nice challenge to bring someone’s rough sketch or a random photo off line with a couple comments of what they like and don’t like.

    I only really use artificial sinew. I have been keeping it simple there are you many choices for thread and stitching irons I am baffled on what to get for What.

    I'm not great at taking pictures, I take a pictures before I send them off just in case something goes wrong with shipping, not really a photo op.
