Timelapse of Wallet Build (2-17-2015)
70 X 7 = 490. Do the Math. Every 1.5 minutes every day you are awake.
If you have viewed the page recently, you will notice the leather working area that I built into my workshop. With a few weeks off work for Christmas break, I decided to move the leather working area into my home office (Man Cave).
Here are a few pictures of the construction, along with a video showing the final product.
When I first started leather working, much of what I learned about wallet design was gleaned from the videos of Steve Montelli. Here is a recent video he did in review of two wallets that I recently sent his way. Since I am just getting started in leather work, my plan is to send him a few more wallets this winter once my skills have improved.
I had a great day in the shop today. My son and I went to an old farmhouse this afternoon to get a free upright piano. Once we arrived back at the shop, we promptly took the piano apart. Here are some photos from the day.
After taking the piano apart, we reused the parts and made a leather workstation in my shop. Check the video below for more.
Give the video a few seconds to clear up.
Welcome to the new page for PianoDesk.com. I am currently (as of July 25th) migrating content to this page. To see examples of Desks made from pianos or Bass Guitars, click the menu options above. You can also look at my old page for construction pictures of most projects. Right now, I do all of this work for myself. One day, I hope to make it a business after retirement from public school education.
