Anybody want to trade samples of their work with me?
Where I showcase and sell my own leatherwork and explore the leatherwork of others.

A recently commissioned guitar strap.  As always I did a small test piece to satisfy the customer that the color was right and to help me decide on the design.

I was given elephant leather by a customer and asked to make something for him from it.   I picked four small articles that would not use too much of his $1,000 hide and show him what things would look like in my assembly style.  I started with the wallet and then did the key ring to make sure the belt would work out.  I have since also completed a cell phone case and I am just busy stitching the buckle in place.

We mostly get take - out, but those times that we have eaten there, the service was good. This is not a MacDonalds, so the preparing of the food is a bit slower, but hand-made. The pizza is definitely the best pizza anywhere!
