Sharing our passion for quality wood and leather goods

Our Story

We would like to happily introduce ourselves as the creators and masterminds behind Splinters and Hides. Our beginning started when we met in college in 1992. From there, as we grew as individuals and into a family, a spark of creativity and the love for the great outdoors took on many forms. What originated as admiration for the 80’s bomber jackets has miraculously lead us to launch our first wood and leather works business in April of 2019! This avenue is both a new adventure and a continuation and variation of our life’s work. We are so eager to share this passion of ours with you all! 


Our U.S. sourced, full-grain leather (Most items are Vegtable Tanned) is the highest quality and welcomes all types of weather: sun, rain, or snow. Minimal chemicals are used to color and tan each hide. Each piece offers unique characteristics and becomes enhanced with use, age, and extra love. It is guaranteed to last a lifetime. 

Our Walnut, Cherry, Hickory, and Pinewood is locally gathered from an Ohio sawmill. Each piece is kiln dried and individually stained to maintain quality. Durability and Handcrafted shows in each product created. 

All wood and leather items are handcrafted in our workshop located in Troy, Ohio. Follow along and be sure to check our upcoming shows!!
