That's impressive S&P. How long did it take you? What is the object you made?

Aside from hunting and fishing, I carve leather when in the mood.

Ah! There it is! I have done a good bit of wood carving,never leather, other than putting a new hole in a belt. Are the tools similar?

Its a archery arm guard. I use leather carving tools and swivel knives to carve. It took about 3 hours to carve.

Did you do the artwork too?

I carved leather for awhile, many years ago. I'd love to take it up again, but these apartments have thin walls and the noise would bother the neighbors.

That's great S&P and perfect for this thread! I only have one hobby, pushing my luck...no good pictures of that!
