WOW! You are so incredibly talented. I'm inspired! I'm new here, and new to leather craft but my goal is to be able to create beautiful tooled dog collars and belts such as what you have here. If I may ask, I am just curious of approximately how much time it would take you to make a belt like this?

OMG, that is a ton of tooling!  A lot of nice work here.  Like the cards, I just did some on a holster, and the little symbols are a challenge, yours came out great.

Thank you! It takes about 3 hours total time for a finished belt, around 90 minutes to tool and 90 minutes for assembly, dye drying and all that, I've gotten much faster over time, it used to take me 3 days to make a belt!

Thank you sir! You've been putting out some nice stuff yourself, those holsters looked great to me! This was only 20 out of a 60 belt order, I was absolutely sick of the pattern lol

Thank you! That's super helpful. When did you start your journey with leather working?! I'm just in awe with your work.

That is awesome!! It's really neat to see the progression. You should do one every year ;-)

You are an inspiration, sir!

So, those belts are all hand-tooled? Wow, i was thinking it was done with a Craftaid, or maybe an embossing machine!

Man, that is some spiffy work.   What sewing machine did you use and what size thread?   Are those shoes bought wholesale?  Very impressive!

Nice job. My son has been wanting me to do something like that on a pair of Hey Dudes. 

Would share a pattern?
