  1. Good day, I'm Chuck and I operate as Dark Angel Leatherworks. A dual US Canadian citizen, my dad having been born in Montreal. We operate out of Cardinal Ontario and Ogdensburg NY. A short 1 mile bridge over the mighty St. Lawrence river separates my shops. As a younger man I was in the US Coast Guard. An old chief boatswain showed me some basic nautical leather skills and the love affair was born. Many years passes until I could seriously pursue my love. I look forward to making new friends and sharing skills.
  2. I'm just about to get my leather for the yokes and back belt on my chaps and I'm not quite sure how thick the leather should be. I was thinking 3.5-4mm as the body of the chaps are 1.6-2.0mm, but let me know what y'all think Also, if you have any suggestions on a color that would complement this. Let me know.
  3. Should one side of a traditional pair of step in shotgun chaps be slanted down rather than just being straight on both sides?
  4. Recently I was lucky enough to have my Small business "Camp Leather Goods" featured in our local magazine "South Sound Business" Come check out the article and see what 24 Hours as a leather crafter looks like for me. 24 Hours: Caleb Arthur | South Sound Magazine For anyone out there looking to expand your reach, I would highly encourage you to reach out to your local paper, magazines, and tell them your story. We all have a unique story in how we came about mastering our craft, go share it with the world!!
  5. I don't know much about leather types/names. I wonder what type leather is mentioned in the images below and if possible, can you suggest a site where I can buy it? Have a nice day.

    Colt Python

    Hey guys and gals. I havent posted any projects lately mainly cause been doing alot more basic items thats not as fun to look at and talk about. But i got a job for colt python pancake holster. And the guy has seen alot of my wilder pieces and ask if i could do a python on the holster. I said yes sir and the fun started. Hope yall enjoy. I know im having fun building it. Ill post some more pics once further along.
  7. Hi everyone! First time visiting Leatherworker.net, so please bear with me if my post is in the wrong thread, or if my problem is not suitablefor this site. I'm at my wits end here, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on whats going on here: I decided to try to dye a pair of painted whole cut oxfords, in an attempt to make them darker. The leather is originally painted, medium brown. I'm dying them with a very dark brown, Saphir Teinture franscaise. (I cleaned the leather with Saphir Renomat before applying the dye). After applying dye in three rounds, the leather (surprisingly) seems to take the dye well, darkening the color evenly. But on both shoes there is an area of about 1x2 inches that doesn't seem to take the dye. This area remains the original color (but with a super matte surface). When applying dye to the area the leather immediatly absorbes the dye and dries up. On the rest of the leather the dye takes 5-10 minutes to dry/absorbe. I've tried dying the problem area with additional two rounds of dye, but it just keeps absorbing it immediatly, without any change in color. What's going on here, and what can I so to solve this? Any tips or thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone, new member here I'm on the hunt for some lovely dyed-through veg tan leather. I make dog accessories and bags too, so I need something fairly thick. does anyone have their go-to shop for veg tan? it seems to be trickier than I thought it would be.. unless im searching in the wrong area of the internet! TIA pic for attention..
  9. This was my first real leather project and the one that got me so excited to do leatherwork. I made this bag for my sister’s Birthday. She has yet to receive it. It is an original design, something simple, no hardware, but relatively tough. I made this bag on my Singer 128 using #69 bonded nylon black thread and a size 18 leather needle. There are a lot of firsts in this bag. First bag! First design! First sewing a round item! First time finishing it up with hand stitching! First time poking my thumb with the hand stitching needle! Only third sewing project altogether. I know it’s not “perfect”, but IMHO, it’s not bad!
  10. Hi everyone! This is the quick Sheath I made with my new Leatherwork. Sorry about the video being sideways, I am going to try and fix that! My first sheath Chip from CHIPPPER BAGS
  11. I made these two folios not so long ago. They have been very nice to have about and are strong and protective. The larger one is for an A4 document folder, the smaller one is for an A5 visual diary. They were both made for personal use in a creative storm. Veg tan leather, stained with an 'antique' oil then kangaroo lacing edges using a round braid. Both were then pyrographed and painted with iridescent paint. This paint is super fun. Changes in appearance depending on the direction of the light source.
  12. Hello, I am starting to cover the box in goat leather, but after I cut out one of the sides of leather and start to skive down the edges, it stretches the leather and then I have to cut it down again and re-skive it.
  13. Here are a few custom designs that I made to cut the tip/ends of leather belt straps.
  14. Do not use Phoenix Leather Supply!! It’s run by a guy in Massachusetts that can’t split or sell certain types of leather. Rude to customers!

    Bison hide

    My 51 SQFT bison hide came a couple of months ago. Now it's time to finally start making my chaps. I just have to find a big enough table now.
  16. Leather Belt Press/Punch by Bian Variani https://variani.com https://www.instagram.com/varianibian
  17. This is one of my 1st belt press/punch that I made for leather belt straps. This is the Hole-Punch for the machine above!
  18. As a Leather Artisan I have struggled with Edge-painting leather belt straps, so I engineered my own edge painting tools which work great and currently solved all my problems. Does anyone else have an alternative suggestions? I always love to hear and to learn from others and new techniques.
  19. Hello Everyone! This is my first time submitting something here and it just so happens to be my first piece of leather carving I've done. It is a pattern from Jim Linnell. Please critique the carving and stamping and let me know what I can do better and how I can do it. Also, I would appreciate some tips on getting even and correct color dying. This dye is supposed to be Fiebling's Light Brown.
  20. I made my first leather belt. It was made out of Italian veg tanned 3.6-3.8mm leather, a brass buckle and keeper. I think it turned out pretty good.

  22. does anyone have any idea what type of leather i would use to cover this kind of box
  23. Hello wonderful community! I'm pretty new here and usually browse around as a guest. However I've got a situation on my hands that I can't seem to find a solution to. I'm currently making an Alien Facehugger mask that required some wet formed pieces. There are around 50-60 pieces to this particular mask. I had just finished beveling and sanding all these pieces(it took an ETERNITY). It was finally time to get to wetmolding and alllll was fine and dandy until a dark pattern started to appear.. on the single most important piece of the entire damn project... Just the one. I've found other posts where metal shavings have come into contact with wet projects and caused dark spots or others found mold on their leather. I can say with certainty that this isn't that. I've tried removing this discoloration with alcohol (which seemed to make it worse) and I've tried using odorless mineral spirits. All 50+ pieces were cleaned with minerals spirits prior to this because I was an idiot and used masking tape to hold down my patterns and try to reduce as much leather scrap waste as possible. I quickly found out that the tape leaves behind a residue that could only be removed with the mineral spirits at hand. That being said, I basically deglazed every piece so there shouldn't be any trace or and weird substance on the leather, right??? What caused this? Why did this happen to the ONE piece if they were all cut from the same hide? Thank you so much to anyone who took the time to read this and is willing to help out a fellow maker.
  24. Hello! I'm currently looking for a used clicker press that can apply up to 4 tons of pressure. I have been currently looking at ones on bluckguy.com: https://www.buckleguy.com/bg-manual-clicker-press-w-swing-head-4-ton/?gclid=CjwKCAjw4ayUBhA4EiwATWyBruTTiASgxUOQmDBHJE-DI98zPFqsFuXDdo2YBug6pp3ju7-xigYFbRoCRQ0QAvD_BwE And one on Weaver Leather Supply: https://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/65-3075/master-tool-mighty-wonder/pr_25365 If you have any leads, I'd love to know!
  25. I'm getting in to covering old boxes in leather, but some of the boxes are very damaged so I need to find somewhere to buy wooden boxes. Does anyone know any good places to look?
