Custom Leather Notebooks

While going through some of my old pictures on my computer I ran across images of this notebook I made twelve years ago.  I had forgotten I had even made  a notebook like this.

Custom Leather Notebook With Oak Leaf Designs

This was a custom leather notebook made to order.  I really like oak leaf carvings and I don’t get to make them as often as I should.  Oak leaves are traditionally a symbol of strength and they used to be very common decorations for stone buildings, furniture and yes leather carving.  

I’ve made many different carvings using oak leaves, from wallets to notebooks, but one thing I’ve never made is an oak leaf carved belt.  If you’re out there reading this and that sounds like a cool idea to you, contact me and let me know.  I would be happy to make someone a oak leaf belt and would probably give you a discount to do it too just because I think it would be a cool project.

Custom Leather Notebooks

Custom leather notebooks used to be my speciality and it’s what I started out making for people.  My very first custom orders were for custom leather notebooks like the on shown above.  These notebooks were almost always laced around the edges like the one shown here because at the time I didn’t know how to hand sew leather.  But I also liked the look and I still make some projects like this.  Most of the notebooks had western floral designs on them but every once in a while I would get to make a Celtic knot or oak leaf design like this one.

If you have a need for a custom leather notebook, leather journal or wedding guest book, please let me know.  I’m always happy to make leather notebooks and journals for people.  Let me know what ideas you have for your design and I will do everything I can to make your idea come to life.
