Location: Jordan Valley, Oregon

I  used to operate 2 businesses  in my shop in Jordan Valley, Oregon; Thos. Angle Saddlery and Owyhee Design. For many years I ranched and built saddles on the side. I also built furniture as I needed it.  I always wanted to see what would happen if I combined the two. That is what I was doing  at Owyhee Design. I used carved leather in door panels and as inlays in mirrors and table skirts. I still built the occasional custom saddle as well as chinks and tack. I also built custom kitchens and about anything else that came along.  I designed all the various things I built.  The economy ended the business in 2008. In March of 2009, I moved to North Central Wyoming to work for the Padlock Ranch. I sold off all my machinery and kept only hand tools and the saddle shop.
In February, 2010, the job with the Padlock ended. We have now returned to our home in Jordan Valley. Since then I have spent my summers working for Snake River Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and entertaining.

Welcome and I hope you enjoy your visit. Great looking saddles and purses! I don’t think I’ll be joining you for the calf fries, though. LOL.

Hello, I wanted to say I think your hand planes and projects are great. Your craftsman ship is really great. I wish I could see your work in person. I really like making hand planes and could learn alot from you. Do you ever sell your planes? I hope its okay to ask that question. Any way thank you for your time, Dave

Hi Thos, thanks for the welcome. Fixed the map, no longer in the ocean. I see you are very fond of hand planes, very nice work indeed.
