So I finally got around to designing a new FTW/Death’s Head wallet. Well, bill fold, technically, and I’m still messing around with the backgrounds a bit. One I’m doing with a bone colored skull then the other one will be black. I plan on keeping both styles up in the shop along with some others I’ve been working on. Burning the candle at both ends is starting to catch up with me! I almost fell asleep at my worktable a couple times now! Must keep going….
Oh, and I used a couple filters on these pics to bring out the depth in the carvings… Is that cheating? Ha! #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #leatherwork #leatherworking #handcrafted #handmade #americanmade
woww I really love your stuff... now im not saying that i want something by christmas but I definitely see some self gifted presents in my future... perhaps there is an online store I can browse or some price ranges and designs you could quote for me? thanks a billion, you are an amazing artist
Only thing is tho, I’m all sold out of stuff and I’m in the midst of an order blitzkrieg!? So I’m trying my darndest to get some new items up in there, rarely sleeping or leaving the shop!?! So just keep checking back here and there, cause the second something goes up online, it’ll probably be sold! So stay on yer toes, and keep yer eyes peeled. I’m working on a buncha new wallets and billfolds that’ll hopefully be up in the next coupla days so folks can get em before Christmas! Cheers and Thanks for the encouragement! -SD
Here’s that last piece all assembled and ready to go in the mail. On to the next project… #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #handcrafted #handmade #americanmade
I thought I should post a pic of this belt bag splayed out before I sew it all up and you couldn’t get a good look at the full design on it… I’m diggin it. I’ll post the finished piece later… So much to do and so little time before Christmas (or whatever other holiday you might celebrate) and I’m feeling the crunch… No sleep till the new year, I say! #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #handcrafted #handmade #americanmade
"Mens Hoodie Winter Double Breasted Medium Long Style Wool Coat…." no idea if there’s a designer/brand name… I’m sure there is, but, whatever..
I’ve been secretly obsessed with South Korean and Chinese styles for a while now. Especially when it comes to what I’ve been calling they’re “Angular Styled” outfits… They LOVE big hoods that you can curl up in, too, which is a huge Plus for me. So when yer deep up in it, you kinda feel like a magic ninja elfin assassin… Which I think is the point, and what they’re honestly going for!
Only thing that I have a problem with, is the fact that I’m a 6’4”, 215 pound man and it’s hard to find sizes that fit me. Plus, it’s all overseas interweb ordering, so you have to measure everything precisely, and, if your like me, teach yourself the Metric conversions to the U.S. standards. It comes in handy all the time tho, so, “Yay!”… I’m a XXXL in Korean/Chinese sizes which equates to an XL here in the states… Go figure… -SeanD
Here’s that other design. I finished dying it last night kinda late, then I slept on super late today. This time of year I’m always on a crazy night time schedule where I only see daylight for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the evening. It drive me a little crazy, but I love the fact that I don’t end up having to deal with other people when I’m out running around. I’m all set up now and ready to take orders, so if your quick, you can be one of the first, so yours will be done before Xmas! Email me with orders/ideas/questions: email@example.com

Well this ones almost done, whatcha all think? Constructive Criticism’s? I’m diggin it… I might experiment with a couple more, and I’ll put em up in the online shop on the next coupla days…. #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #handmade
Here’s one more original design, not sure about the colors I’ll go with, but it’ll be another multicolored one. I’ve been kinda obsessed with Victorian ornamental designs lately and the sacred geometry behind it. Plus practicing my drawing skillz. So I came up with this!?! Fun-times! #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercarving #handmade
Here’s an original design I’ll probably turn into a ladies wallet. I’m thinkin a lot of color, maybe turquoise, red, and black. Who knows….. #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercarving #handmade
Now that I’m unpacking and setting up my new shop here in Nashville, I can put up some of the practice/original stuff I’ve been working on but set aside while moving! This was some practice figure carving that I figured could be used for something at some point… Any suggestion? #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercarving #handmade
It’s an amazing feeling when the scenery matches your outlook on the future… I’d forgotten how beautiful New Mexico sunsets were. Nashville, I’ll be up in you tomorrow! Happy Thanksgiving Yall! #cheesybuttrue
Yes! This just made my morning! Ha! I’ve needed some new words for old things, and this hit the button! Awesome…. I want more!
If kids were taught basic firearms safety, there’d be a lot less accidental deaths, at least in my opinion. I get the utopian vision of a gun free world where everyone’s “Safe”, but you can’t un-invent guns. That’s just reality. Plus they’re the last resort against tyranny in the US. I pray that I never have to kill another human being! I don’t want that on me for the rest of my life, but I believe I’m the only one who can keep me safe, and if I am able to build a life with someone I love and have a family, then it’s my duty as a husband/father to keep my family safe! Heady times my friends, heady times…..
So its been a while since I posted something, huh? Mainly because I’ve been busy with other life stuff and I actually haven’t worked on anything new in a long time!? This here belt, with the California Poppies/Art Nouveau-ish design has other stuff on it too, but its personal things for the person who ordered it. So I figured is just put up the main part of the belt for yall’s perusal. I’m finally leaving Cali this weekend and moving to my new home in Nashville, TN, so I’ll finally be focusing on this business again (thank God!?)… I’m stoked about moving to one of the top 5 freest states in the country (TN is #3) from California which is the opposite, being in the top 3 least free states. Different sides of the same coin maybe!? Hope everyone’s well, and a big “Hello!”, to all the new folks following this here thingy. I’ll be more active on here since I’m living back in the land of cell phones! Cheers! #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #leathercarving #handmade #americanmade
