Banjo Strap

Recommended Posts

This is going to a sailor aboard ship. Don't see many Banjo Straps posted so I thought I'd throw one out in case anyone was interested in making them.

Just Beautiful,

The letter scrolling is great, and the striped lead straps bring the whole theme full circle.

Great work again ! ------- Wild Bill46

What weight leather do you use for your nonlined banjo straps? Do you do anything to the back to keep dye from rubbing off?

Tooling looks great.

Colt,

I use 7/8 oz Hermann Oak for unlined Banjo Straps, the back side isn't dyed. I use Fiebings Aussie on both sides, that gives the backside that darker look. The Aussie makes the leather very supple when you apply to front and back, heat with a heat gun (or hair dryer), then remove the excess by buffing. I seal the top side with Clear Lac. Putting the Aussie on both sides also helps with perspiration resistance which is another great benefit on an instrument strap.
