VIDEO: Watch a video of Geoff explaining the features of the Blueprint Tube on our YouTube channel here:
Your tube may not look exactly as pictured here - every product is handmade.
Thick, structural 6/7 ounce American vegetable-tanned leather is used in the making of the tube. The leather is cut, edged, dyed, burnished, finished with a waterproofing preserving blend, stitched together, and assembled with hardware in my workshop.
Adjustable shoulder strap is permanently attached with a riveted D-ring near the base of the tube. The shoulder strap also holds the lid on, and is adjustable to carrying length.
The interior is unfinished to protect the contents.
LEATHER: Your Walnut Studiolo product uses natural, vegetable-tanned leather and will not look exactly as pictured here. Real, natural leather carries is a natural material, so every hide has unique characteristics that individually personalize each product. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each piece of leather is distinctive in its color, grain, and markings, which may include scars, mars, or blemishes that are a natural part of the cow's life and a sign of the high quality of the leather we use.
DIMENSIONS: Interior dimensions 32" (81.3 cm) long x 3" (7.6 cm) diameter. Exterior dimensions 34" (86.3 cm) long x 3.25" (8.25 cm) diameter.
WEIGHT: The entire tube weighs 1 lb, 5 oz.
MONOGRAMMING: Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters using our 1/2" font set. Monogramming can add 2-3 days to the turnaround time. Monogram placement is shown in the last photo. Learn more about monogramming.

I purchased from Walnut Studios knowing only that they were an independent, small company with some interesting things for sale. I ordered hopefully but unsure. The experience exceeded my expectations readily. The case arrived near the beginning of the expected delivery range, including a customized monogram that was slated to take an extra one or two weeks. So Walnut managed expectations spectacularly, and still delivered quickly.
The item itself, a leather map case, was of superior workmanship. Smooth finish, sturdy stitching, and the cut was in accordance with the advertising copy.

Karen H. said: Blueprint tube - beautiful!
It's beautifully constructed, very nice quality and colour leather, amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. Only comment would be that I don't love the font of the monogram, but really the quality of that too makes up for it and was a great touch. Service, delivery and packing also excellent.

Great product. I am extremely happy that I purchased it. The only suggestion I would make is maybe the tube needs a liner to make it more rigid. Great product overall!!

I was looking for a well made and good looking tube to carry my arrows to and from the archery range. Typically we use those ugly plastic document tubes strapped to our bow bags. The folks at Walnut were kind enough to modify their blueprint tube for me (without the long carry strap). The final tube is beautiful, perfect for my needs and has garnered envious looks from my fellow archers. By the way, the blueprint tube would make a great case for fly fishing rods as well!

This is absolutely beautiful! I found a treasure, a handmade item, that has been carefully crafted by an experienced artisan, made with passion. It is a very special birthday present for my Architect son. It will be treasured for a lifetime. Thank you so much. I congratulate you on producing something truly magnificent. Etsy, this is what handmade is all about! From Sabina in Australia.
