We are the Doverspikes, and this is where our collective output is mashed together. We create things faster than we can post, so be sure to check our socials & DM us with any questions about that one thing you might've seen online...

Signage & Installation

We create a variety of laser-cut signage, ranging from conbadges, to elaborate wall art. When we attend conventions, we usually create specific items for it.Woodcuts are embellished with a number of different materials: gold-foil inlay, thermal and/or prismatic paints, resin, gemstones, woven wire, and more.

Wall Art




Sometimes there's also an opportunity to work with copper & steel. Featured are various furniture installations for Red Stelle Salon, in Austin TX.Also, a bottlecap bartop for the Forlorn Hope Saloon in Wasteland City...


Hides of veg-tan leather are laser-cut and hand-worked into a broad variety of armor styles & designs. As I receive more requests for cosplay pieces, I'm always expanding my skillset.While having a machine is useful for precision, there's still a lot of work that goes into each piece. I like to focus on dexterity, having started crafting armor for desert environments.Our Etsy store features a lot of these items for sale, but I also thrive on custom commissions.



Other Leathercraft

We got our start in crafting soft and hardcover leather tomes, then branched out into collars & cuffs, belts, bags, and other custom work...

Manticore Gauntlets

Requests for custom work is largely how I'm able to innovate. And wielding a laser engraver means that I can design forms with tight tolerances.A several-year iteration of armor focused on dexterity has resulted in Manticore Gauntlets. Each set relies on detailed measurements to craft custom-fit leather armor with the articulation of metal.I currently have three tiers of Manticore; standard, custom, and draconic.

Wasteland Weekend!

Wasteland Weekend is a post-apocalyptic gathering in the Mojave Desert, a confluence of established culture & unique forms of insanity. This is an arena where all of our skills intersect.In 2014, we cobbled together costumes, a themed tent, and were introduced to Road Rash via a mutual friend. It was an amazing first year, and the reason we kept coming back for 7+ years.The sole tent soon became a modular structure, as we started our own VULTUR tribe. I had found an old 96' Toyota Tacoma and began to convert it into a dune-crawling, war-by-four.We're now members of the Dauntless Express Corp, who oversee the tribe and mission boards just beyond the front gates, and manage the Forlorn Hope Saloon.

2014 - 2021

Armor & Weapon Crafting

This is currently where the bulk of our Metalwork lies, being woven into other upcycled materials, with a Wasteland motif.
