This beautiful matching set was hand carved to match a Washburn acoustic guitar's design. The pick guard shows off the mountains of Ashe County, NC which are dyed a smoky blue with a orange/yellow sky depicting a gorgeous sunset. Both the pick guard and strap contain 5 different shades of brown. The strap is hand stitched with a thin black cowhide backing. Made of premium European veg tanned leather and softened to look and feel as old as the NC hills.
I absolutely love making custom guitar straps. They're fun to make and even more fun to see on stage. When I design a custom, one of a kind strap there are many options from which you get to choose: length, width, buckle type and size, border, backing material, hand stitching or machine stitching, lacing, design and coloring. With so many options you'll create a very personal, custom piece of functional art which will look even better as it ages!
I feel like my guitar straps deserve their own page. Now they have it! Check out the new Guitar Straps page!
It's done! And it's beautiful! This Gibson Les Paul guitar is covered in a 0.6 mm thickness black pigskin. It was slowly stretched and cemented into place for a super tight fit. Then it was saddle-stitched by hand without any prepunched holes. Saddle-stitching assures that unravelling is impossible. Every hole was made with a tiny sewing needle (not a leather stitching needles, those are far too big.) It took a lot of time, patience and determination. This project was made from a single hide.
Would I do another one? Sure! If I had no time pressure and I chose the hide .....
I would do another one for $1,200.

Miss Cara found a great deal on a pair of chaps but they were two inches too high in the waist.
After a bit of disassembly and shortening ....
One curve stretched into place, ready for stitching. This is going to be incredible when it's done!

Three generations are involved in the making of these knives. The dad had his father make these knives for him and his two teenaged sons. Then he contacted me to make matching sheaths with their initials. They're lined with black pigskin and hand stitched.
Fall is here, leaves are turning and it's time to get your orders in for your personalized Christmas presents.
