Check this out. This is what my partner in Seth's was hired to do. Hand tool the Indian Logo in leather for the back of a jacket. Talk about detail orented. I would never have the patience to do this. I think he has about 40 hours in already. I will post more pics as he progresses if you guys want to see. He literally has to hand paint each section with different colors of dye. Eric is definitely good! :tongueout:

This is what he was brought...



This is where he is today, 40+ hours later...

It is going on the back of his leather jacket. He is an amazing dude. I picked a pretty good partner for making custom holsters huh. :wavey:

Any chance you do rifle slings? :supergrin: Judging by the quality of this work...it might make an ugly rifle pretty.
Yes he can. He made an awesome one for his sons first gun last Christmas. Tooled with his sons initials in a celtic sort of font. Here are some of the bike seats he has done.



His lacing is pretty bad ass too.

Depending on how it got ugly, it might be that much prettier because of it. :supergrin:

He wouldn't happen to make wallets by chance would he?
If it is made of leather, he can do it. He is getting ready to do an entire leather interior for a 57 Chevy. He has done a lot of really high end cars. He is as humble as they come too. He would be embarrassed to death if he knew I posted this.

Here is his website if you want to check out some more of his stuff. It is pretty out of date I think.
