Woodworking doesn't mean you never venture out to incorporate non-wood materials in your projects. In fact, having something like leather can add even more rustic character to whatever it is you are working on. For example you've seen leather chairs with wooden frames and magazine holders made from wood and leather. However, you can go even simpler than that and if it sounds too intimidating, here are some DIY projects that seamlessly blend wood and leather together.
Farmhouse Wood and Leather Wine Rack
When you mix rustic barn wood with leather straps, you get an incredible DIY wine rack. What's great about this project is that it can either be fixed to the wall or hung. If you're a wine lover and love that rustic and weathered look, you are going to love this DIY project.
Woven Leather Stool
A DIY stool with woven leather will be a versatile piece of furniture that is simple to make, as long as you have a bit of time on your hands. When you use a hardwood like oak, it brings out the rich tones in the leather. This stool could be a standalone piece of furniture, or you could make a few and invite some friends over for great conversations sitting on your handmade chairs.
Wood and Leather Towel Shelf
Whether you have a small bathroom or just want to add a unique touch to it, a wood and leather towel shelf is a great DIY project to do. A nice bonus is that you also get a little bit of storage space on top of it, or for displaying some decor. With only a few materials needed, you can finish this one in no time.
Wood and leather are great together when it comes to DIY projects. These are just some projects you can do, but there are many other possibilities. Once you move out of solely working with wood, you will see just how much more dynamic your DIY projects can become.
