Dad’s custom rifle sling finished. Artwork is all pyrography (burning) featuring my dad’s “J.J.” insignia he signs his artwork with, custom tribal/totem style design, and large feathers and tons of stippling detail. Dyed in a “fade” with 3 different shades of brown. Wide design on top for comfort. Also last but not least, goat skin padding sewed in, and has a compression type setup for adjustment of sling eliminating the normal screw posts for easier use, better fit, and adjustment while hunting. I’m really proud of the way it turned out, and I hope my dad get’s many happy years of use out of his new sling! -Rob
Making my first rifle sling. This one is for my dad, features custom artwork and his initials the way he signs his projects. Artwork is all leather pyrography on the sling. Can’t wait to get some color on this! More pics to come when its finished.
A belt I made for my Dad. All hand burned design done with a variable temperature cub burner. Took about 12 hours to do. He tells me he loves his hand made belt.
Still practicing techniques with my leather burning tools. Getting to know the various nibs. This time added some color to see what it looks like.
Practicing with my new detail tips on a small piece of leather. Still need practice but coming along nicely.
Testing the waters with our first blog post. A little leather pyrography I’ve been practicing.
