put me down for one of your "practice" wallets, paul...
can't wait to see what you come up with. i've seen a lot of people here looking for saddlebags and stuff. you just can't beat the look and feel (and smell) of leather.
a buddy of mine started doing custom biker and punk rock belts and purses and stuff years ago. last i heard, he's got clients like madonna now.
leatherwork is an awesome skill to have. maybe i'll take that up while i'm recuperating from my shoulder surgery.
