Skull and Roses Clutch Wallet

Here’s a clutch wallet I made recently. I designed the pattern and cut it out on the ’Forge and combined hand tooling with laser engraving on the outside. I like the blend of analog+digital. Came out cool!

Another beautifully executed item. I love the interior designs and the perfect blue stitching.

Man, you are skilled with those stamps, that shading is so good. I agree, the engraving adds a unique touch. Everything about that piece is a work of art! The fabric lining is :kissing_heart:

All extra amazing! Are you using the Glowforge score to lay out the designs? It is trully some of the best leather work I have seen!

Thanks for the kind words! I don’t use the score function. I print the artwork out on a vellum sheet and transfer it by tracing over with a ball point pen. This leaves a light impression in the leather, then I cut the lines in with a swivel knife and then manipulate with various tools.

Thanks! I’m getting better with each piece.

I’ve got about 15 hours in the tooling alone. Another 2 or so with color and assembly.

I was curious what part the Glowforge played?
