I am working on a commission for a card wallet. I thought this would be a good opportunity to show you some more of my work and practice my media skills

This video shows the process from laying down the design to the completed carving. I transferred the design from the transfer paper to the leather after it had been cased. I then used the swivel knife to cut the leather so I could tool it. I used the appropriate tools to get the desired effect. This design uses mostly bevelers and detail tools. I then made the final swivel knife cuts, touched everything up and set it aside to dry. It will get the color next and then assembly.

The song playing is “Can You Dig It?” by The Andrew Allen Trio. It is from their album Secret Identity. It is available from Coverville Records LLC.
