Do it when I can,.....but here's some of my work/play
Nice work! I can tell you have a lot of time and tools invested there. I still have my leather carving tools and stamps but haven't done it in years and years. Oh I make the occasional thing out of leather but only rarely is it tooling leather and I never carve any anymore. I do have a portrait of my stallion's head I carved and mounted as a wall hanging. If I get my camera working I'll post a pic of it.
Beautiful work!!I play with leather tooling some,but have never produced anything as intricate as you.
Wow, that is gorgeous! My hubby plays around with it but nothing like that!
Thats a lost art for sure! Beautifully done. Have you carved for a saddle maker?
Do you make any boots? like hunting boots waterproof?

I'm wanting to try and do a complete saddle,..but I dont have the materials accumulated yet.
Thanks for the nice words....
Quote:nope,....I've done some moccasin boots in the past,...but they're far from waterproof.
They're very comfy,.......but do get wet easy.
I made tooled belts, buckles and wallets back in the 1970's. I was never as skilled as you. Still have my tools and patterns. Last year I pulled them out and made a saddle horn cover for a child's saddle for granddaughter. The saddle horn had been chewed by a dog and looked very rough with some of the leather missing. (The pattern was traced on a leather belt buckle blank way back then and I had never tooled it, so I just went with it! Not the prettiest, but it is serviceable and she's happy.)
