Wood & Leather

Inspired but the book ‘Leatherworkes’ by Otis Ingrams I set too and made a waste basket which has a 300mm diameter x 30mm Ash disc as its base with the total bin height of 380mm.

 

Playing with the concept led me to downsizing the concept to the much smaller pen pot and then catch all tray. the pen pot is 80mm diameter with the tray 140mm. – in all cases I have used brass escutcheon pins to attach the leather to the wood using a panel pin with the head cut off as a drill bit to make a pot hole.
