A gallery of some past leather working projects.
Most of these have been detailed in previous posts but with the continuing requests for information, I decided to make a “best of” gallery here with links to more detailed information if it exists. I hope to continue to add to this page as the leatherwork is popular and is just about my favorite craft. Nearly all of my projects are made from high quality, natural, vegetable tanned leather. I really like the natural look so I don’t generally use a lot of stains. However, since most people seem to like the stained look, I now use some dyes by request. I also am experimenting with some natural ways to dye leather for effect other than just waxing and waiting for it to age.
16″ open top Carry-All. Described here. I really like this design and I’m hoping to make some more to put up for sale in the coming year. This one is dyed “tan” and is actually slightly darker in real life.
18″ traditional haversack. The original post is here. This is a big traveler’s bag and is very sturdy. It has a large main compartment and three pockets.
And some tools that make the products:
