Wowza.....That looks nice, full pics?

i'll post full pics in a couple days, i just finished it and want to get it sent out and let the owner see it first. it's a dyed/processed inside, not fabric, but it's something i've been fooling around with for a while that i've finally figured out.

thanks for the kind words guys :)

Corter do you have patterns made up for your various styles or just have the measurements locked down for the constant pieces then alter the needed parts for customers?

wallet on the right is a basic wallet I made for a guy in california. tanned it for him for a bit, colour is turning out real nice. wallet underneath it is a long wallet that I'm almost finished (just have to put a coin fastener on it, then sew that part up)

finally someone that didnt want black detailing! it's a mid w. a snap and 5 cardholders, brown and black layered dyes and glazes on the detail.

looks great!!

to me it seems like it is thinner than the normal snap wallets!?!

is it possible for you to make wallets not that big....

speaking of 0.75 inch instead of 1 icnh or something like that....maybe with the use of some thinner leather???

that mid was only around .5-.6" thick, i dont use a lot of extra layers so my wallets tend to be thinner than 1"

thanks for the kind words!

Always love seeing your work corter!

The burst looks interesting. Almost looks like the leather is pre-distressed, but in a cool way. Someday I'll have enough money to support the corter fund...:(

Here's a wallet i made for a friend , it's pretty much a design corter made. It was just for practice. 2485379374_be2bfcbdbe.jpg

props corter. being a fellow walletmaker, I can understand the patience you must have is amazing. How long does it take you to make each wallet, if you don't mind me asking? I lose track of time fast, it's seems like anywhere from 8-10 hours though

depends. I can usually do cardholders in like 1.5 hrs, bifolds and regular snap wallets in like 4-5, depending on how sidetracked i get watching tv or going online. some of the most complicated mids and long wallets have taken days, literally, just getting everything perfect, making multiples of things because i wasnt happy with em, and designing detailing in sketches, etc. i'd say average about 6-7 hours per piece, but it really varies.

post some of your stuff!

yea, that seems about right actually. I usually multi-task and talk to friends and browse the web while I work. here's a few shots of some stuff I've made lately though...
