FS: Handmade leather card cases and keyhooks - NEW COLORS!

post #1 of 148
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've been making some leather goods for myself over the past year, and have had several requests from guys on here and sufu, so I thought I'd make a FS thread. All prices include First Class shipping worldwide. I originally had an upgrade to Priority, but it was worthless because it takes the same amount of time as First Class, and cost 5x as much for international. All leather goods are available in natural, black, British Tan, or Cordovan veg-tanned cowhide. British tan is a honey-colored mid-brown, similar to the color of my year-old card case that started as natural. The Cordovan is a very rich dark brown, with some red undertones. There's Black along the bottom, natural in the middle, British Tan on the left, and Cordovan on the right. All items are treated with a coat of Obenauf's LP, unless you tell me you don't want it. If you have any ideas for customizing to make any of this work better for you, just let me know. Paypal Only - PM me for details card case 01 - $38 This simple card case can hold up to 6 credit cards easily, but will fit more with a little stretching. The flap closure is very secure, but easy to open for quick access. Here is a photo of my natural case with one year of use, compared to a new one. card case 02 - $38 This card case was based off of an old wallet that I had seen in an antique shop. This case will hold up to 5 credit cards easily, but will fit a few more with some stretching. Here is the inside of both card cases, with 01 on top, and 02 on bottom. Keyhooks can be made with brass or silver hardware, and natural or black leather. keyhook 01 - Standard $28 This keyhook can hold one or two sets of keys, depending on how many D-rings you ask for. keyhook 02 - Modified Standard $28 This keyhook is like the Standard, but has been modified to also hold a remote key on the back. I have made this for VW, Honda, Nissan, and Opel keys/remotes so far. The two photos on the right are my natural keyhook that I have used for the past few months. That's how quickly the leather ages! keyhook 03 - 'Biner hook $28 This keyhook has the bottom of the Modified Standard, but was designed for using with a carabiner. This keyhook can be modified to use the bottom of any keyhook. keyhook 04 - Belt Loop $24 I made this keyhook to fit over a belt that is up to 1.75" wide. You have your choice of hardware, either the swivel hook (L) or the snap hook (R), and I will include a D-ring if you want to someday convert it for a lanyard or something else. keyhook 05 - Shortie $24 How can I describe this keyhook other than to say that it's short? It's perfect for someone who just wants a set of keys hanging from their belt loop The keyhooks will fit nicely inside your back pocket.

I love the marbling of the natural cowhide you use, too bad it doesn't last

Hah, thanks, guys. It's hard to say if the marbling lasts or not, as my card case didn't have much of it to begin with. I might make myself another keyhook just to see...

Believe it or not, it is a Banana Republic belt that I have been wearing for a few years. It has been washede and waxed and has a wonderful patina these days. It has a large brass buckle. Nice username, btw

I'm glad you like it! I'm home today with my daughter, who is sick, so I just cut a ton of blanks for different keyhooks. I'm thinking I'll put together an Etsy page ths afternoon

I'm pretty ignorant about belt care, would you mind explaining what you did?

I only just saw this. Really nice. I'll be ordering a keyhook!

Crappy iPhone pic but you get the idea. I removed the D-ring because it was a little long.

^That's a great mod to shorten it up! I'm glad I use the Chicago screws so you all can do what you want. Here's a nice mod from wild style over on sufu:

It's basically throwing a belt in the washing machine to beat it up, then after it dries, adding a couple coats of beeswax or carnauba wax. I've worn the hell out of that belt for a few years and it only keeps looking better.
