How Leather Became My Passion

The Journey...

The journey through life is unique for each of us.  The leather products I create at Log Cabin Leather are also unique and should help define your identity and style.  They are inspired by our natural world and strike a stunning balance between function, style, and beauty.
Each product offers a unique experience.  Feel the texture of the one of a kind hand tooled design and let your imagination soar.  Smell the aroma of the leather and let your mind drift back to times gone by.  Be inspired by the original design on your quest for greatness.
Each product is constructed to provide everlasting quality, durability and  functionality  with customer satisfaction the primary goal. 
 I hope every product will inspire you and will open the pathways of your imagination on your adventures through life.  Customer satisfaction is my goal.
Belts have always been my best sellers.  For those who have purchased a belt in person…It is an experience.   The first sense to be aroused is the sense of smell.  There is nothing like the smell of leather.  For most it brings back fond memories.  They  feel the quality of the solid leather strap.  They examine it closely noticing that it is made from one thick piece of leather.  It is not sewn together, so it will last years not months.  
All belts are custom fit so you get a quality belt that is exactly what you want with the size and fit you need, including the choice of buckle shape and finish.        
Hand tooled belts feature unique original designs that cannot be found anywhere else, so if you want to express your unique style and make a statement, look no further.                              
My Dad loved my belts and although he is no longer here, several of the belts I made for him back in the early 80’s, are still being worn today.  Some by me and others on my son. 

The addition of Guitar Straps to my product line grew out of a need, not by me, as I have no musical ability, but rather from musicians who admired my unique hand stamped designs.
The innovative style of my straps developed as musicians expressed problems with their current straps.
I was on a mission to create the most incredible straps I could. I wanted to create something better that the straps with the little shoulder pad that could slide around and slip out of place. I created straps that are fully padded not just at the shoulder but the entire length of the strap so they provide maximum comfort for extended hours of playing.  I created straps in different lengths to accommodate different size and weight guitars. I realized musicians have different body shapes and hold their instruments differently, so straps needed to address these needs.  And I created adjustable straps that don’t have metal hardware to scratch your beloved instrument.  And I also designed straps that can be customized so you can make each uniquely yours.


  Inspired by the beauty of nature, let these one of a kind hand carved book covers open the pathways of your imagination.  Enjoy the experience. Smell the leather and let your thoughts drift.  Feel the unique texture of the carving then let your thoughts flow onto paper.  Keep all your essential supplies organized inside while you work or travel.                                                     No matter where your thoughts and dreams take you there is a cover the perfect size to travel with you- journals, sketch books, notepads.  All books are refillable so they can be lifelong companions, as you journey through life, and maybe even become family heirlooms.                                                                          The cover pictures on each book are composed, carved and painted by hand and each is as unique as you are.  My love of animals developed as a child and has always been a topic dear to my heart.  I hope each will help you connect with nature.  All creatures great and small are part of the circle of life and need to be respected.  I hope you will dream big, explore and record your adventures  in one of these covers while leaving a minimal footprint for those who follow.
