Here is a much requested video from your suggestions both here and on our facebook page! For the July Leather Tooling Series we are showing how to figure carve a horse’s head into leather. I am not the greatest figure carver out there and I still have a lot to learn on the subject, but I will attempt to show you what I do know. After that, you can seek out guidance from some of the greats out there… and there are many amazing figure carvers that you can learn from. Jim Linnell and Peter Main would be the two that I would highly recommend checking out if you haven’t already. Continue reading
How to Make a Leather Shavekit
We created this video, “How to Make a Leather Shavekit,” in the fall of 2017. I just realized that I never posted it to the website. So this is not a new video technically, but if you do subscribe to our YouTube Channel then it may be new to you.
In this video, I show you my process for making a tooled leather shavekit. These toiletry bags are good projects whether you are new to leatherwork or a seasoned veteran. They are great sellers as well.
In the video I walk you through my entire process of making the shavekit as well as tell you the different weights of leather used to make it. I also have a companion pattern pack that goes with this video if you would like to purchase that. It contains all the cut patterns as well as six different tooling patterns.
If you would like to purchase the companion pattern pack, you can check that out by Clicking Here.

The music in this video was performed and produced by my brother Ben Schane. If you would like to to hear more of his music you can find his music on itunes. The song in this video is from his album “Antique Noises.”
