We were approached by Lambert's Downtown Austin Barbecue to take part in a really exciting project: making sixty leather trays to present the check to patrons of the amazing restaurant with Larry McGuire at the helm. Needless to say, we were thrilled!

The design process was pretty natural as we had already developed some molded leather trays previously.  The two spearheading this project Ryan Smith (Creative Director of McGuire Moorman Hospitality ) and Claire Zinnecker (Designer Extraordinaire ) came to us with some dimensions and functionality requirements.

After about four prototypes and tweaks we finally arrived at a perfect size and hit the ground running. The guys over at FODA STUDIO came through with an amazing rendition of the historical J.P. Schneider & Sons building which we had turned in to a magnesium die which we used to deboss the front of the leather trays.  Sixty sessions of molding and trimming and debossing and oiling and suntanning later we are proud to announce the Lambert's Leather Check Presenter.
