Conchos

I always cringe whenever I throw away a piece of leather that could potentially be useful. I finally solved that problem by buying a concho punch that uses most of my scrap and makes me some extra cash that otherwise I would have waisted. These are great for saddles or can be encorperated into western clothing.



Mini Hatchet

Here is one of my latest projects that I have really enjoyed making. These are regular hatchet heads built with a shorter handle that can easily be packed or hang from your hip.

Antler Creations


For Sale: $15

I saw some of these fire starters on-line and figured I could do the same thing or better. They are fire starters with antler pieces as the handle with a leather strap in through the handle for wearing on your pack or keychain.

Ammo Bag for .22 Shells


For Sale: $50




I got this idea in the middle of my nieces birthday party and went right home and had this done in about 30 minutes.  At first I did not have the side gusset material which made getting to the ammo a little difficult. Once the gusset was added I had more than enough room to grab a hand full of .22 shells to reload.  This is perfect for target shooting, especially when you are going through round after round. I would say that this can hold up to 500 shells at a time.

Baby Moccasins

For Sale: $20





I have always wanted to make myself a pair of leather moccasins and have actually attempted it a few times when I was a teenager.  Now that I have enough know how, I was able to get online and replicate some moccasins and add some of my own touches to them.  These were so fun to make and even made my wife cry they were so cute.

Shotgun Shell Bucket


For Sale: $85
2 available




This is currently my second shell bag that is great for taking along with you to the trap or skeet range. It can hold up to 100 shells or more and is equipped with a convenient carrying strap as well as a synch cord to keep your shells contained.

Flint and Steel Pouch

For Sale: $30





I am currently a Varsity Coach for a local group where I live and we are currently learning primitive survival skills by a local Anasazi group.  They are teaching us how to use nature as a tool or weapon to survive, just like the mountain men or native americans of the past.  We just recently used flint and steel to make fires and I decided to make myself a storage pouch for my flint rock and steel striker. The pouch is kept closed by using an antler handled ferro rod which can also be used, along with a knife, to make a fire but not in as primitive of form as the flint and steel.
