Boy, Dude, you need a tri pod for that camera, or quit drinking! :} Nahhh... just get the tri pod.

I like it. Like the conchos and the lace. The overall design is a nice presentation. Good work.

Looks like 1 1/2" down to ???" I'm about to make something similar (wave type) and was wondering how low do I go with the valleys. From 1 1/2 down to... say 1"? I'll play with a design or two but would like to know what others prefer.

Thanks for sharing,

Bill

Hi Bill,

yeah never was much good with a camera,though the customer supplied the 4 pics in 1st post.

any how,the belt,its 1.1/2 inch down to 1 inch,this is made for a 32 inch waist so its quite short I have put 5 dips and 4 conchos in the belt,

I made a template shaped like a dog bone,IE concho either end dip in middle I made this 5 inches from centre to centre,hope this is of help to you,

and thanks for your compliments,

Cheers

JJ.
