  1. I got a lot of leather belts hanging up that I ruined making belts, but I learned a lot from my mistakes and from watching other people on this site and also the support from members . I can’t wait to see your belts later on. My big problem was being too much in a hurry. Your first belt was way better then mine.
  2. A very nice wallet, with excellent workmanship.
  3. One day I got to try doing some belts like yours. I really like that look. Very nice.
  4. That is how I got started in leather working, I bought a 60 dollar belt from a shop on internet. I was verly upset with the workmanship. I hand sew all the belts ,wallets, messinger bags, and etc. I have a cowboy CB227R. I don’t use it much, I just like hand sewing.
  5. That is a very nice belt, I made a hundred belts , but that belt you made is special in my opinion.

    Here is another picture, the color is wrong, first pictures color was ok. I purposely dyed portfolio that way to get that effect, it looks really nice, the photo doesn’t do it justice
  12. This portfolio was done with 2 -3 oz veg tan with mahogany stain, I was going to throw it away but wife wanted it. Lightly pricked the holes but the problem was I prick top layer with holes leaning left bottom leather holes leaned opposite, so when inserting the awl the hole spacing changed. Inside ok outside the holes got closer together making the thread smaller. Thread .08 mm. Posting mistakes may help others. Next time I’ll punch all the way through, I just wanted to make sure spacing was same on both sides, oh well I glue the front and back with cry spray
