I cannot remember where and what video I saw @dan talked about his wallet he made. But I remember the story was along the lines of him going into a leather shop and the owner trying to talk him out of it. The result was he lasers a wallet and wowed the owner(Dan tells it way better).
I get the impression the owner of the store envisioned Dan trying to do something along the lines of this video:
And if that video doesn’t set your hairs on end and make you weep at the craftsmanship, his leather belt one is awesome too:
I can see how the laser eliminates a slew of tools and years of hands on experience.
