Sunday, December 27, 2015's taking over as my go to posting spot.

Well as the title says Instagram has taken over as my preafered sharing spot. Mainly because its easy. I dont have to sit down in front of the computer and type anything out or upload pictures. I just take the photo and caption it and boom I have it shared to Instagram and Facebook both at the same time. So look me up on Instagram and Facebook, user name Skableatherworks

But, I will do better in the up coming year to update this blog more often. I have been as of late moving more towards blacksmithing vs leatherwork. Not really sure why. Maybe more of a challenge as its all new and exciting for me. I'm learning new methods all the time.

Here are a few pictures as of late.

Frontier Styled Sheath

Stumpy sent this real slicer of a blade to have a pair of pants made for it....he also sent along the deer toe bone fire steel and bear parts he wanted on it. (As I can not provide any part of a bear from Nebraska legally .....even though we don't have any bears here!)

Any way he asked that it be right side wear with a dangler made from old horse tack leather.....and beads and what not....this is what I came up with. The fur at the top is in fact bear fur, the cones I hand made and used horse hair in them, forged ring for the dangler and this one is elk rawhide, it's alittle thicker then deer.
