It has never been so busy in the Woodlore Leather Workshop. Becky, our resident leather worker has been beavering away recently making numerous products, including sheaths for the new Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife and the new Ray Mears Leather Strops. Becky has also been engrossed in building up stocks of our very popular products in readiness for the upcoming Christmas rush. During this busy time Becky thought that it would be nice to give you a little insight into the ‘goings on’ in our leather workshop:
I love to see a batch of finished work but Keith has worked some camera magic here – the lighting has really brought out the lovely variety of colours and natural markings in the leather.
I always have a variety of leatherwork in progress as some of the processes require drying time like the moulded fronts of the Ray Mears Leather Belt Pouch – shown here with one of the moulds and its’ cut parts.
I was also putting the finishing touches to the new Ray Mears Leather Strop so that got snapped too!

Beautiful leather work. I would love to see your process from start to finish. Next time the photographer’s in, get him to shoot a short video, or better yet a step by step build along. YouTube would go nuts.
