Dia De Los Muertos case - 10-22-2018, 07:48 PM

Just finished up this Day of the Dead themed case.

I've got about 100 hours of work into this case total. Was a lot of fun to make and definitely a journey. Here some finished pics and some in progress pics as well so you can see the details of what goes into tooling a large project like this.
Thank you and hope you like it.

From drawing a pattern to completion:















*Sorry for the ginormous pics. I'll try and edit them down.

Thank you! This is a one off. Just a hobby for me to relax from my day job doing construction. I started doing leather work in 2009. Trying to make more cases and catch up on some orders but time is always limited.

Wow! That looks amazing and I’m not typically big on colored and carved leather but this one just is so well done, the variation and shading in the coloring just makes it come to life and the carving looks incredible. Very nice work!
