Stingray Wallet

Stingray Wallet

Custom Stingray Wallet you ask? Coming right up, err…. in a short bit… I have worked with a lot of tough leathers and difficult projects but I have to say finishing this wallet for a recent customer strained the both of us. The design and the manufacture of the pure cow leather bits was not difficult. Determining exactly how I was going to stitch this baby was not. Stingray skin is actually made up of a hard calcareous material that is more like armor than skin or scales. A regular knife will not easily cut it, nor are your scissors happy if you use them. I ended up using a pair of shop shears for the rough cut and my belt sander to get the edges straight....

Fountain Pen Case (Hard Shell)

Fountain Pen Case (Hard Shell)

Fountain Pen Case, hard shell and custom made. It does not get any better than this for the discerning fountain pen collector. I was contacted by a client in Toronto looking for something just a little bit different. He forwarded me a few photos of cases he likes along with this comment, ” I can’t find anything outside of Japan that isn’t junk (sort of cheap leather and all floppy). Your stuff looks fantastic and high quality”. Well, I am always up for a challenge and thought to myself, “self, let’s ramp this way up!” The ramp-up? A layered piece of custom molded kydex giving this Dragon Leatherworks pen case practical...

Pocket Watch Case

Pocket Watch Case

A Pocket Watch Case is a definite requirement for those that prefer to carry a pocket watch over a wrist watch. We were commissioned by an executive in the mid-west to create a custom leather pocket watch case with attached leather braided cord for one of his latest antique finds. Interestingly, we have recently been commissioned to make many leather items without having the actual piece that will be placed in it. We do this with exact dimensions, a lot of research and hand made hardwood molds. This watch case was no exception. As the watch is very valuable, the customer didn’t trust the transportation system to deliver this watch safely for a custom fit. (I have...

Leather Wrist Brace

Leather Wrist Brace

This Leather Wrist Brace was made for a customer that pretty much beats his pharmaceutical braces to death. As I understand it he goes through one of the fabric braces monthly. Whether just beating it up or “setting it on fire” as he says while welding his custom drag cars, they just don’t last nor support his damaged wrist properly. Apparently other leathersmiths he has contacted to create this stated “it can’t be done”. We’ll, yes it can…see? “Bruzer”, as he is called. contacted me a while back with this request and was kind enough to mail me an old brace that I could use both as a pattern and for internal...

Automobile Document Pouch

Automobile Document Pouch

The Automobile Document Pouch is a variation on the Document Envelope. My client owns a 2011 Z06 Corvette which has a red exterior with a black interior (He used to own a Mark IV VW R32, my baby). He wished to carry all Vette manuals and such in a more customized manner vs. the binder that came with the Vette. Due to the many manuals and such that are provided with the car we needed to increase the width of the pouch from the standard envelope width of .75″ up to 2″. Due to this is was necessary to use a gusseted side panel vs. the standard stitched sides in order to keep the pouch width accommodating for the glove box. The pouch is made with 3-4oz....
