Handle is laminated using Oak and Mahogany scrap pieces. Leather piece is saddle stitched and punched. Made one for the garage and one for the house. Works splendidly!

These fly swats are ready to be transferred to the gift wrap room upstairs. I hope the recipients enjoy using them as much as I have enjoyed making them. It was a a wonderful skill building project for me. I used hand planes, chisels, spoke shaves and scrapers. Additionally, I got to learn how to stitch leather. Very fun and valuable project for me.

I loved making these. The were made from a combination of Oak, Cherry, Maple and Walnut. I found the leather stitching tricky, but an iron flattened out any creases.

Laminated white oak, purple heart and plum. It was completely enjoyable to pick up my leatherworking tools after years of collecting dust.
