Purchased for my SO for Christmas and was able to have it completed and arrive with plenty of time. He was absolutely floored with how great it looks. 10/10 would purchase again 😊

John did great on the custom deck box I asked him for. I gave him free reign and was happy with what came out of it. Was missing one custom piece that I asked for but John is making up for that. I wanted a one-of-a-kind deck box for a gift and that is what I received. It was loved.

I'll be honest, at first when I received my package, one of the symbols I asked to be customized came upside down... But we all make common mistakes once in a while, ya know? The owner of this shop is really understandable, and was willing to take it back, then re-shipped me the correct one. I'm happy with the turnout of the product, and shipping came faster than expected both times. The guy knows how to be precise with the customization requests, which is why my review wasn't unchanged after the whole ordeal. A MUST BUY FOR CARD COLLECTORS.

About

Once upon a Cog

I was asked by a friend, "Will you help me make a halloween costume?" She then went on to enlighten me how creative and crafty of a person I am, in hopes of convincing me to undertake the laborious task of hand making her a fairy outfit. My response back to her was "Sure, I'll help you, but fairies are kind of wimpy. We need to do something with a bit more ... grit..." and then began our search for ideas on what to do. After a few days of deliberating, we decided that a steampunk fairy was the way to go. She could have her delicate little fairy, and I could have my grit. Here's where it gets a little crazy....

I've never sewn before. I didn't take home economics. My mother sews, but only on occasion, and I can remember no time in my life where anyone really made anything significant using a sewing machine. I am however, adventurous and had a little money to throw around, so I decided to go to Walmart and purchase a really cheap Brother sewing machine for around $85. I did myself a little research on how to use the machine and pattern making. After a solid week, I had hand crafted a custom underbust corset, using a pattern I had made myself, made of cheap upholstery leather. It was lined with duck cloth and was fully boned using steel bones. I used eyelets in the front and back adjustable and tied it together with some gold cord. Success! The corset looked amazing.

I spent the next few weeks working on a set of foam board wings. I made myself a stencil and cut out 4 pieces of foam board with cogs, gears, and sprockets to make 2 wings. Each wing was 2 pieces of foam board with a piece of sheer cloth glued in between them, with bias tape glued around the outside edges. I had made clockwork wings, complete with a music box style key.

In the end, her costume was a hit. It took a few weeks to make, but didn't really cost all that much. The leather I used was really poor quality, but worked great for that project. It caused me great frustration however. I wanted to make things of much higher quality and durability. This is when I found Tandy Leather Factory. I went and purchased some vegetable tanned leather and a couple of small tools, went home, and started crafting. After just a month, I had made my first gauntlet, followed a month or so later by my first heavy leather corset. This whole thing has steamrolled into the shop I have today. I make things I enjoy making, and sell them to those that want them. I take the most difficult and intricate commissions in order to push myself to learn new things. Today, I do this as an extremely overactive hobby and love it wholeheartedly.

I love making things that people can enjoy and use. I am constantly doing everything I can to push myself and my artwork to the next level. My name is John and I am a steampunk leatherworking engineering artist.
