As some of you may know, I do a variety of leather craft items in addition to the holsters. I've recently taken classes on how to do my own matting/framing. My hope is to put together pictures that are tooled onto the leather and then do the matting/framing all in one shop. Here's my first attempt at such an endeavor:

Two Thumbs Up!
Love to see people working in leather & doing tooling and pictorial carving.
One of my great loves in life is working in leather.
I've not done much in quite a while though.
I REALLY need to make one or two more sheaths for myself...& I'm looking forward to doing them...just as soon as I can dig up some free time.
Looks like you're doing a pretty nice job with your frames already.

The only thing wrong with it is it isn't hanging in my house ;)

Very nice, I've always liked the rustic look.

Thanks for the kind words, folks.
I've always enjoyed doing the leathercraft, in whatever form/fashion. Doing it this way gives me the opportunity to do something aside from the holsters, and I can do it at a little bit more leisurely pace.
I've picked up some other "designs" to try my hand at. I hope to do about one a month. I'll post pics along the way.

Great looking leather tooling and framing. Damn I wish I was creative....
