Here’s a custom belt I just finished for an old pal up in Philly, and it only took me twice! Ha! I hate screwing stuff up, especially when it’s in the dying portion of the process! But I always try to look on the bright side and improve on anything that I might have had as doubts from the originals… So, usually when I make a mistake, I figure it was supposed to happen, since the second time around always turns out better! More coming up soon! Cheers everyone! #leatherwork #leathercraft #leatherworking #everycloudhasasilverlining
Good day! I thought I’d throw up a picture of what I’ve been working on before I go sewing it all up… A black and gold wallet face with part of a rattlesnake a close friend (you know who you are) killed, skinned, cleaned, and sent to me as a nice present… Anyways!? Hope everyone’s well! Cheers! #leathertooling #leatherwork #leathercraft #leatherworking #rattlesnake #goldisthehardesthuetohold #nothinggoldcanstay
Just finished this buddy, and I really like how it turned out! It’s similar to the All Leather Tote I posted a little while ago, but this is a cross Body version with a bunch of elements I’d been wanting to use for a while, but hadn’t had a chance… it’s up in the shop now, tho the pictures on my Big Cartel based website aren’t loading for some reason, so hopefully if you go there to check it out, they’ll be there! Either way, I’m really digging how this turned out! Ha! Awesomely awesome. #leatherwork #leathercraft #leatherworking #leathertooling #handbag #attack #madeintheusa www.realclassleather.com
I’m just having fun with a little late night sewing, and thought I’d snap a picture of a side of another bag I’m zoning out on! I’m F’n stoked on it so far! It makes me want tons more crazy colored thread…. #leatherwork #leathercraft #sewing #madeintheusa #someday
I pretty much had The Ladies in mind when I made this Nouveau Poppy wallet, tho it would work out just fine for the more distinguished men out there too… With our discriminating tastes for life’s finery’s! Or it could be I’m just talking a load of bull! Either way these are up in the shop now too!
If you’re in the Nashville area today, I’ll have some stuff for sale at the JP Harris & The Tough Choices record release at Fond Object… I’ll be eating gumbo and making deals! @ilovehonkytonk’s Gumbo kills it every time too! Cheers! #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #madeintheusa

Happy Saturday everyone! I just posted the first of many new bags that will be for sale on the Real Class leather website, and this buddies a steal too! A Sweet southwestern style tote with carved California Poppies! I also kept the price down since my industrial sewing machine skillz are a little wonky still, and there’s a few wandering stitches here and there… So it’s “Slightly Flawed”, just like yours truly, but totally stylish & built to last regardless!! 16”L x 18”H with 26” handles make this a bag you can bring anywhere! I made myself one, and I use it constantly! Coolbeans, Mane! #leathercraft #leathercarving #leatherwork #madeintheusa
Here’s part of a custom belt/buckle order for an old buddy who wanted an H.P. Lovecraft theme… One epic “Cthulu rising from the abyss” belt buckle? Check! Now onto the actual belt, and a buncha Yith, doin Yithy things… Whatcha think Dave? #leathercraft #leathercarving #leatherwork #madeintheusa
