Landing Nets

I have always been interested in learning how to bend and form wood to your desired look and feel.  After many failed and successful attempts I now feel a bit more confident in what I'm doing. Here are a few of my recent creations. Some have a custom net where the other have a ghost net for fish friendly fishermen.

Most recent creels of 2015. I've been branching out and have been doing a lot of other styles of creels including wood slat creels.

Hatches and Sheaths

I just refurbished an older Hudson Bay Norlund hatchet and made a custom leather sheath to go with it. It has 6 layers of stacked leather on the bottom and 4 layers by the blade. Very fun project.

Here are some metal headed mallets for small projects that don't have a lot of space to work in. These have hand lathed handles with a beautiful finish.

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 Hatchets with custom handles

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.
