After hobbling out of the construction business, Gadabout
turned to leatherwork as a hobby to break the monotony of a life as a househusband…and also to help quit smoking.
At first, his projects were focused on Reproductions of Revolutionary War Era shooting bags and other accoutrements of the eastern Long hunter. He continues to reproduce a few each year for re-enactor friends.
However, with much encouragement from his very understanding and supportive corporate wife and a very special and talented artist friend, he soon expanded his work to portmanteaus and trunks…and now Southwestern home furnishings.
Curt always has a variety of projects underway at his home in Wesley Chapel, NC and is continually developing new designs. No two pieces are alike, and many are custom made for his customers.
