Custom Leather Work


Quotes Finally watched the chink video. Great job explaining the why with your technique. So much more informative than other videos I have watched. If you are planning on making a set of chinks or chaps for the first time, dont waste your money on any other video. Marks is the real deal and he does a great job explaining the how and the whys so even a first timer with limited leather experience can make a functional set. Thanks again for the instruction and the patterns. Quotes

Chink Video

Quotes Just received the DVD. I am so excited to get started. It is very well done. Thanks Mark. Quotes

Quotes Well first off, great DVD! it far surpassed my expectations. Theres something about learning from somebody who has spent 20 plus years working on chink patterns that makes it all worth while. You go into great detail on how, and why you do the things you do. Your experience has made an otherwise daunting and overwhelming task achievable for someone like myself, who has never made a set of chinks before. My advice for people who are on the fence about purchasing the DVD, would you rather waste a couple hundred dollars in leather just to experiment and aimlessly cut and sew? or learn from someone with experience and create a pair of chinks with confidence? The decision was easy for me and i can not thank Mark enough for being kind enough to share his knowledge so this art can live and be passed on to young leathercrafters such as myself. Thanks Again!

Quotes Hi Mark... Thank you (and your wife) for all of your advice on what I needed to go with the chink pattern for my son and getting it to him before Christmas. He has got a lot of info from the DVD and really pleased with it. Have a great New Year. Sally Quotes

Quotes Dear Mark, I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the workmanship on the armitas you built for me. I really am pleased with them. Your assitance in getting the right measurments was perfect as they fit PERFECT! I am so happy with them. The details and quality of the hide is just beautiful. Most importantly they do the job. I have had quite a few compliments on them. And also- I know I mentioned this before, but the slobbers and spur straps you built are really doing a fine job. They are exactly what I asked for. I especially appreciate the time you took to design a carving that was very special for me. Thanks very much Mark. It's been a pleasure to work with you and get to know you. You are a very gifted craftsman and I am so glad that I can count on you to build me what I need. I've attached a pic of the boy and I. You can see how happy I am with the armitas.

Quotes Mark did a very good job on the dvd. very informative. good video and he explains very well what and why hes doing what hes doing. he goes from measuring to tooling to finishing and all areas are present. He explains well on the tools hes using. Im in an area where hands on information is very slim to none so to see someone elses work and how they do it gives me ideas an know how to improve on what I already do. thank you mark job well done cant wait for more dvds. the leatherworld always needs more good informational teaching tools.

Quotes Mark I am going to type up a more detailed thread but for right now I will offer my thoughts and the pros and cons. 1. the detail is great mark goes the extra mile in every step wonderful, I have made a half dozen chinks and I learned a lot of good tricks and reinforced other ways as well. 2. the filming is good and you can see all the things you should see unlike other chap making videos. 3. the tooling part was a added goodie Mark I love you're tooling you are sound with all your techniques ( I would love to have a tooling contest how ever I would lose) 4. and finally his patterns are top of the line and very strait forward. 5 stars thank you Mark.

Quotes I got my DVD today! Here?s my unsolicited review. Maybe unwanted too! Well worth the money. Pretty detailed in parts. Not adventure movie quality, sort of like taking a college level class. Patterns are good. I'd give it an 'A' in grade. Much more detailed than the other persons DVD on chap making that I have purchased. If you do it again, I'd ask for a few more things though. I'd like to have a copy of the sizing check off list you show. I'd like to see the finished chaps on the person they were made for so I could eyeball the fit. I'd like to see a fitting demo with a real person wearing the chaps and moving around. So all in all, I liked the DVD and I highly recommend this DVD!! Joel Edwards Quotes

Quotes Mark, Just received my DVD's and watched them right away ! I have to compliment you on everything. The detailed explanation, to the quality of the filming. I have made a couple of batwing style chaps, but not any chinks. I saw you do some things that I really liked, and learned some new ways of doing things. They were well worth the money, thanks Fred Quotes
