AWOL's Leather Work

Back before I came to Singapore I learned of a hobby from a good friend that I'd like to think I got rather good at. It was leather work. I recall many hours spent tapping with a mallet and a variety of tools, making all kinds of stuff. As I'm working to clear my computer of the vast number of images (and move them up here where they can be seen by more than just myself), I come across these.

I'm not likely to get back into this art due to the fact that Singapore's high humidity would make storing leather difficult, as well as the total lack of dealers of leather, not to mention the cost of the tools and the cost of having them shipped here. Though if someone shipped me a set of tools (hint hint) I'd find a way to get some leather. So here I present the works I've made. Mouse over the images for a description.
