Our pal Dave Theobald emailed these pics of a couple new seats he made up. What else can you say but wow. Great work, easy to see why they both took first place ribbons at the International Federation of Leather Guild show in September. Check Dave’s other work here: http://www.theobaldleather.com
Fay Butler, at it again.

Just came across the work of leatherwork David Theobald, who’s churning out some killer seats out of the 513 area code. Clean lines, beautiful details and just well executed all around. Check out his jive at: www.theobaldleather.comApril 8th, 2008 by grail21 in Leatherwork | No Comments

Adam Croft from Last Ride Leather (www.lastridecustoms.com) out of Bloomington, Illinois checks in with a great article about how to make a hand tooled leather seat. You’re definitely going to want to check this out. I’ll let Adam take over from here.How To, Leatherwork | Comments (17)
I am of the firm belief that Christian of Xian Leather is one of the most accomplished, creative and down right kick ass leather artists in the world. There are a lot of great artist out there doing great leather work, I’ve featured many of my favorites on this site and absolutely love the work they do. But there is something about the work that Christian does that makes my jaw hit the ground with a loud thud every time I see it. The crisp lines, the fine details, the flowing style and well thought out designs are not only top shelf, but just out of this world. The seat featured above and below was created for Sean Marcus out of Marcus Dairy, CT and like in the past, I’m just in awe - it’s just damn beautiful.

For those of you think you might want him to make you a seat, do not hesitate - his work is top knotch and his reputation is impeccable, just make note that he’s not accepting any new order until June.
