A recent project I just finished. It's a couch arm table that slips down over the arm to hold drinks, phone, tablet, remotes, etc. This is also my first attempt at drawing my own floral design to carve. I lined the inside with deer skin to protect the couch.

Wow, nice job, out of curiosity because I'm new to leather work, how long did that take?

Brownie1, I probably spent 2-3 hrs drawing the design, lots of erasing, since it was my first time drawing a floral design. Then maybe six hrs tooling and an hour or so doing the finish. Building the wood tray table was probably a couple of hrs.

First!  Fantastic, totally unique look, and a good one at that.  I like everything about this.  Now, to put some leather in the bottom of those holders.... :)  That basketweave came out awesome, even going around so many things!

That looks great. I betcha you'll think twice that first drink you set on it, I know I would.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. Thinking I'm going to stain it darker and bevel the bottom outside edge of the inner leg so it doesn't ride up on the seat cushion.
