I’m Levi Woods, an Armorsmith and artist working in Vancouver, British Columbia. I love creating new videos to share my shop creations with you. I love all fantasy, medieval and science fiction movies and especially love crafting arms and armour for costumes and props departments. I’ve been building custom armor since 2000 and have worked as a professional movie prop costumer all over the world. When I’m home in my shop I love building art out of wood, metal and leather and love to explore new techniques. I focus on crafting custom leather and metal armor.
