Week 2 of Leatherworking...

Leatherwork, as with most of my interests, has turned into an obsession. I'm two weeks into this art form and I love it! I'm taking a beginner class at my local Tandy Leather shop and I'm looking forward to learning more. Above is a piece that I've been working on over the weekend.

Digger Inspiration

I'd like to build a "digger" one day. This one is a perfect example of what I'd like to build.

Loving this Shovel

I love this Shovel. I nabbed the pick from Chop Cult. I'm thinking that my next project is going to be a shovel.

No Weld Sissy-Bar Fabrication

I started with mounting "rod ends" to my fender. This is usually where a welded bracket would go.

I then used a MAP gas torch to heat the steel bar I used for my "trial". I didn't want to ruin my expensive brass rod on my first try!

I didn't have to correct bend angles on the steel rod so my fender didn't follow the rear tire. Glad I made this mistake on the cheap piece of steel!

I made the corrections on the bends and mounted the bar. I think it came out great!!!

I've completely sucked at blogging

So I've completely dropped the ball on blogging. I'm hoping to pick up the pace and add some interesting things to the interwebs. I've got a new chopper, a 1973 Harley-Davidson Ironhead Sportster. I'm having fun dialing it in. I'm heading to the "Big Mountain Run" in Tennessee in May.

More to come...
