Beautiful, I hadn’t really seen what was possible with leather until I joined Lumberjocks and saw Thos Angles and your work. Really cool, and I love the mahogany, it’s a wood I really want to do some work in.

Beautiful job, Cowboy. That is a very elegant “Southwest” piece, if I may call it that.

That is fantastic. The tooled leather really pulls it all together.

Cowboy,

You are a multi-talented person. I am not sure whether I like the mahogany or the leather better. Both are simply gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing.

That is just so beautiful…whereever it’s going to rest…well, it’ll be the highlight of the room.

Cowboy,
That is one hell of a fantastic job. Combining the two “ARTS” like that is fabulous.
