    Leather Art

    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:

    GREAT!
    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.
