Restoration of polo tack

We’ve had lots of diversity on the workbench this week, with this huge holdall of polo tack to be repaired and cleaned, four polo saddles awaiting various repairs, restoration of some Gucci handbag handles, the crafting of some new watch strap loops for our local jeweller (http://www.littlecogs.com/), and refurbishment of leather for a giant pocket watch and table clock.

The polo tack was by far the largest job, but we’re really pleased with the results, and the fact that it’s going to keep our players safe on the field!

New leather for shooting sticks

Shooting stick repairAnother interesting job completed, and the customer is thrilled!

This one involved stripping and re-seating some shooting sticks from around 1914-1918.

The old leather was falling apart after so many years of use, so we replaced it with brand new stuff and went the extra mile by fitting leather to the pole and handles as well.

We think they’re looking fantastic. What do you think?
