    Hey all,

    I'd like to get me a new custom wallet made :) I know some of you guys made some Leather tooled pick guards in the past here some works were really amazing.

    Don't wanna spend too much, design is quite simple some decorative tooling, get in touch with a PM if you are :)

    Cheers

    If you have works to show post them gonna be a nice thread i believe :)

    My middle school football coach’s last name was Leathersmith. He was a good man.

    I made one from a Tandy kit a while back. Not too hard.

    That's what I was going to suggest. Tooling leather isn't brain surgery, I did it as a kid, you just follow a pattern, plus you really only need a few tools. I bet there are all kinds of kits available online, and YouTube videos to show you how. Check out tandyleather.com.

    Sorry. I used it for 10-12 years, until it was worn out.

    Very impressive Nightowl.
    I also approve of the old school BDU pants.

    They just fit so well! They don't show leather dye that drips unintentionally either.
