|This leather top hat came with a light brown hat band that I never really liked so I made one. I had these spikes in my leather box and the neutron star screw back concho. With a little stamping it came out okay.|
I had a little fun with this flask cover. The original design and paint taught me a few lessons in carving and shaping.This is the front view of my compass case.
Can anyone guess what the symbol is?
My first attempt at custom leather molding. It fits the compass perfectly. Much better than the flimsy cloth case that came with it.
A pair of protective cuffs from oil tanned leather. I found that you didn't need a special leather sewing machine all the time.

This is Bass Lake near the Southern
entrance to Yosemite.
Knarley old trees seem to catch my eye and when my wife and I were scouting rest stops around Bass Lake for a picnic I had to take a shot of this one. It also shows how low the Lake is which may be due tot he new hyro-electric plant going in.

Another lighthouse stripped of its lens and in serious disrepair. It is thought so little of, that not even a flag can be raised on the station pole. Very sad.
