LeatherBurnishers.com being retired

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 28, 2011 by Chris Wright

Wednesday, 8/31/2011 marks the last day I’ll be doing “turned to order” burnishers. My family needs more of my attention so one of the hobbies has got to go! 😉 Once things settle down, I’ll reopen the Etsy store with purchasable inventory. For those that have purchased one of the hundreds (yes, literally hundreds…close to 600 to be more precise) thanks for your business! I’ll still be reachable for repairs and the Etsy store will soon open again. Main difference is I’ll be turning when I have time, not all the time. It’s been a very busy year especially when this all started with me simply turning a few for me and my pals.

I received a couple of pictures from the client with the 2008 VTX1300C whaletail bib I showed previously.  I love how the red paint & black leather work so well together.  Studs are definitely a theme on this bike!

Just a quick update, I received some pictures from the client after he installed the recently completed Honda Shadow Aero 750 leather wrapped side covers so I thought I’d share.  They look sweet and definitely fit the theme of his bike…enjoy!

2010 Honda VT1300CT tank bib & toolbag

Here’s a recent addition to the Three Mutts Custom Leather line-up, tank bibs for the new Honda VT1300CT models.  Currently, I’m only producing the tuxedo style as I’m still looking for a suitable tank for whaletail bibs but the tuxedo style looks pretty sexy on these.  I also made a custom handlebar toolbag for the same client, accenting the interior and edge lacing in blue to match the overall bike color scheme.

For my brother-in-law’s birthday, my mom asked me to make a cover for his LDS Quad (bible set) like I had made for my nephew.  We decided on a distressed brown for the color and did the same CTR shield and initials for the front.  The back and interior are smooth for the straight-forward aged look.  Wickett & Craig 6oz veg-tan for the outer and 4oz for the inner flaps, Fiebings Pro-Oil brown for the color, hand rubbed with lambswool in various amounts to get the color variations.  Dark brown stitching and black burnished edges complete the look.
