Christian Workshop was founded in the summer of 1971 by Tim Kennedy. He started out with a backpack full of leather tools and $40.00 in a tiny shop in old downtown Melbourne, Florida. While living in the back room of the leather shop, he applied his creativity, skills and hard work to build a modest, but honest and reputable business. Learning the trade the hard way -- by reading, studying the work and picking up tips from other craftsmen along the way -- has given Tim a unique perspective of his craft. His ability to work with a wide variety of materials and construction styles to produce reasonably priced articles of superb utility, durability and elegance have been hallmarks of Tim's business for nearly four decades now. Christian Workshop has grown to the point that we now have a 9, 200-square-foot facility with an impressive array of machines and inventory. Tim will be the first to let you know that all of this good fortune is not merely because of his hard work or "luck." He has a firm belief in and dependence upon the providence of God, hence the name Christian Workshop, and the motto, Eximus Et Gratis Dei -- In Gratitude To God. We are confident that if anything needs a case, a cover, a harness, a bag, a sheath or whatever, we can make it, make it right and at a reasonable price!
