Leather Spines

"For those days when one spine just isn't enough."

My friend Jessie ( has been mentoring me in the ways of leather working (because obviously we need MORE hobbies). For my first project I designed this spine accessory, with special thanks to Jessie, Aaron, Sam, and Hollye - each for helping me solve "the next step" in my design process.

We are hoping to have these available for sale on etsy, by the end of October, 2013.
"I think that's.... totally achievable. Mainly, cause that's all stuff you have to do, right?" ~Aaron

After painstakingly hand cutting three of these bad boys (each taking over six hours and countless x-acto blades, just to cut), Aaron suggested laser cutting, as the natural next step in the hopes of saving ourselves both time and hand cramps. After a bit of hunting, we hooked up with The Build Shop (, in Silverlake, for a quick intro class and some *pew pew* fun.
