Custom Hockey Helmet Straps

Someone asked if I could design them custom leather helmet straps for their new hockey helmet.
Rope core. Super strong. Soft on the face. Will develop a patina with use

Supple Brown Satchel and Belt

A good friend of mine asked me if I could build him a bag to replace his previous beloved courier bag.  He asked me to make the bag clean looking: no buckles on the lid.
It took quite a while before I stumbled upon the idea of magnets, and even longer before I solved the problem of how to attach them without stitches.  I think the result turned out quite well.

Custom Belt and Wrist Bands

Here are a couple of bands and bracelets and a custom belt recently commissioned by a good friend in Dartmouth.
You can see his initials carved into the belt behind the buckle.
The belt is simple and clean with a carved groove detail, setting off the colour of the leather inside against the darker dye.

The bands are shown below.
