Randy Cornelius

Hi, my name is Randy Cornelius and I want to welcome you to my website and shop. I have been doing leather work most  of my life. I was introduced to Leathercraft in grade school some 40 years ago  where I made my first set of saddlebags which I still have today. I started making  things out of necessity, being around horses all my life I started making horse  gear and tack along with other necessities like belts, billfolds and other personal items. I branched out making things for friends, co-workers and family until it became the business it is today. Being in law enforcement I became  adapt in making law enforcement gear and gun leather along the way. I take  pride in making quality leather items that last many years and in some cases a  lifetime. I use only quality American made leather and the finest hardware available.  Every item is custom made to order to suit the customer’s needs. I have a complete modern saddle shop where everything is made right at my home. Anything from a custom made saddle to purses, belts and wallets and everything in  between is hand made by me, nothing is outsourced. Custom repairs of all kinds are gladly accepted. Attention to detail and a quality product is my goal. I have won many awards on the international level competing against other leathercrafters around the world.
