The nickname comes from my scout troop. I'm a scoutmaster for a troop of Boy Scouts. I'm not the oldest of the scout leaders, but I have the most gray hair, hence the nickname. My youngest son, one of my scouts, insisted I use that nickname here.

I've done art and leatherwork for as long as I can remember. In college I majored in art with a computer science minor. I had the idea of doing computer animation. But once out of college I found out the reality, art doesn't pay much and I had student loans to pay. So for the past 20 years I've been working in the computer field.

A few years ago I determined to get back into my art work. I went to a local art festival where I saw someone demonstrating a high speed air drill doing wood carving. I was hooked. I hung around his booth for some time and talked him into letting me try out his drill. It was amazing, it seemed to combine drawing and leatherwork. It wasn't long until I had purchased one of my own and began doing low relief carvings. From there I've expanded to do some 3D carvings and recently even tried my hand at some chainsaw carving. Since finding LJ's I've been inspired to expand my wood working skills and try even more.

I came across this post when browsing the internet looking for options for my daughter for a belt. She suffers from severe metal allergies and standard belts with metal buckles are not an option for her. I am trying to find a belt with a buckles that is completely metal free, not an easy task. I also have to keep in mind style as she is 14. She does love horses and this drew my attention. I did notice that the you still used a metal piece on the back to attach the belt and I do not know if there is another way. Please let me know if you have any ideas or if you even sell you work.

Have your say...
