Traditional Wallet

This was the last order I took for xmas , I still missed it by a day but damn I forgot how much goes into a sheridan style design.
They always come out looking great. I guess that's the reason the style has been around for so long.

Couple of things to share

So for you local cats , There is a new swap meet trying to get started up. I for one would really dig having a good swap to go to once a month. So lets see if we can keep this one around. here's the a link for the info.

Also there is a new motorcycle show trying to get up and going I stumbled onto it via Chop Cult Seems to be right up the garage builders alley. The pilot is up for viewing on their blog. So take some time to check it out.

Troy had me make this bag for his girl. He wanted something different and unique. I think i captured both of those in this piece. I really enjoy working on something I have never done before the process of designing and executing the design is always fun.

This wallet was commissioned by Troy . He's one of the many guys I met on the annual Pancho Run here in Texas. I don't know how well this will go with his Hanna Montana back pack but Super Man can't touch him. Hope you dig it brotha!

Revamping the bag.

So Teacher John gave me this bag awhile back to freshen up. It's been sitting on my work table since mocking me cause I for the life of me couldn't figure out how to add something with out making it look like shit. Because the bag had already been dyed I couldn't tool on it so a simple carving with the swivel knife was the best option. Along with the webs I added the black dye around the name to make it stick out, I also used an antiquing gel on the whole bag to give it a little more life and character and topped it off by dyeing and waxing the edges to keep it sealed up.
All in all the bag turned out better than I expected and looks like it was made that way to begin with which was my goal.

KInda Cute

So this was an interesting project to do. Not typical of what I normally do but when I am faced with a challenge I take it on at full speed. The design of the wallet is new also . It is mainly for Credit cards and change . The pocket with the leather latch is big enough to carry that necessary change we all need from time to time.
