- Long, cold nights in the Midwest.
- Limited mobility due to injury.
- A need to create new things
- A desire to fund my trips later this year…
This is a recipe for high productivity in the workshop.
Fortunately, I have a fairly large stockpile of leather and supplies to see me through my projects as I find inspiration in different projects. I am leaning toward things that have been popular in the past years but if anyone has ideas or suggestions, I will gladly consider them.
This is my travel wallet design. It’s a simple clutch-style document case to keep things safely stowed when you want more than a card wallet.
No frills but elegant in its own way, this one was left natural color and rubbed with dubbin (a mix of neatsfoot oil and beeswax). Full-grain veg-tanned leather like this ages beautifully and takes on a golden brown patina. This wallet should outlive its owner.
As always, the stitching is double-needle saddle-stitch for strength and hard-wearing.
