The outside of the chest. The chest is actually made of half inch birch plywood stained and decorated with leather strapping. I painted my heraldic crest on the top and also decorative patterns to give it more interest. The hasp and handles are hand forged.

A pair of leather boots.

Various leather bottles, made by sewing two halves of leather together, forming a pocket. The leather was soaked in water until it was soft and then sand was rammed in to push the leather out. They were left to dry and then the sand was cleaned out and the leather sealed and saturated with molten wax.
