I’ve taken a step away from the woodworking this week at work. Getting burned out, you know? So the kids are working with leather – wallets, pouches, motorcycle patches, etc. Normal kid stuff.
Thought I’d show my personal leather project: Wrapping the handles to my personal (and my work’s) tools. Something about the feel of good ol’ worked in leather around a tool. Feels good in the hand. Also, the kids get more control with the smaller tools, and it teaches them to swing the full hammer, not just choking up and swinging the head.

What are some other customizing jobs (or simonizing in “Death of a Salesman” terms), y’all got in your collection?
