Welcome to Drygulch Leatherworks, home of quality hand made leather goods.  My leatherwork is done in a small shop in the back of my home in Baldwin City, Kansas.  I am proud to offer American made items, and work to source most of my leather from American Tanneries.

Drygulch Leatherworks features quality leather goods created one piece at a time.  Leatherwork is a hobby of mine, but my family comes first.  Due to time constraints (i.e. young family members, and a more than full time day job,) my focus in leatherwork is now on premade items that are ready to ship.  I am able to provide references to other leatherworkers who may be able to help you with a custom order.

I offer a good selection of quality handmade leather items in my Etsy store, including:





Belt Fobs

Dog Collars

While I try to keep my listings up to date on Etsy, often I simply don’t have time to list all of the items I have in stock.  In those cases, I will add a post here to discuss them.  If there is something you are looking for, please contact me to see if it might be available, even if it is not listed.

Thanks for visiting Drygulch Leatherworks.

Holiday Strop Sale 2015

20 Nov

I have worked over the last several months to get quite a few strops made.  At this point, the part I am struggling the most is to get the listings posted on Etsy where I normally sell them.  A few of these are posted on my Etsy store, but most are not.  I have additional pictures of these strops that I can email, please contact me for more information.  Here is a list of what is available:

Modern Style- My design for strops.  Uses copper rivets to put things together.  Three inches wide.  Most of these strops have separate handles for the leather and hemp linen elements. All strops include leather hanging strap, and double handled ones include second strap to tie ends together as well.

  • Chromexcell Horse Hide 18×3 Black Single Handle- $65
  • Chromexcell Horse Hide 24×3 Black Double Handle- $75
  • Chromexcell Horse Hide 24×3 Burgundy Double Handle- $95
  • American Bridle Leather 24×3 Black Double Handle-$95
  • Oiled Latigo 24×3 Double Handle- $90

Classic Style- Includes single hand cut and sewn handle holding both the leather element and the hemp linen element.  Three inches wide. All strops have leather hanging strap as well.

  • Soft Rolled Horsehide 18×3- $120
  • American Bridle 18×3- $120
  • Shell Cordovan Black 17×3- $185

Paddle Strops- My paddle strops are made from half inch thick solid oak boards, sanded and stained.  The leather will measure slightly smaller than the boards. (e.g. a 2.5×12 strop will have 2.25×10.75 inches of leather.)  Great for pastes.

  • 2.5×12 inch Horsehide- $45
  • 2.5×12 inch 2 sided Horsehide and Cowhide- $55
  • 1.5×12 inch Horsehide- $40

  • 1.5×12 inch ¼ inch thick board Horsehide-$30
  • 1.5×12 inch ¼ inch thick board Cowhide- $30

Paddle Strops

Note that I have more than one of some of these strops.  All strops listed are subject to prior sale.Shipping for any of these strops within the continental US would be $8.  For international shipping, please contact me.
