Description: The most common comments I have gotten on this piece is that it reminded people of a medicine ball or punching bag. Mainly because the main body of this stand is custom sewn pieces of leather in an old leather punching bag style. Finding someone who had the skill to sew this piece was not easy. Hit some initial roadblocks, as many told me it couldn't be done. I finally found a woman in a custom bike leather shop, of all places, who took on the project. She did an amazing job. A cast aluminum stand with drawers made from wenge wood, complement the leather and make this one of my favorite pieces.
