    First DIY - BFS for my BFK

    I have no experience, but between YouTube and Tandy I figured I'd give it a try. Veg tan should be perfect for the look I'm going for... someday.

    Overall, I'm relatively happy with. There are little things I want to make better next time, but I'm pretty happy with it for a first go. I'll probably source another clasp because this one is a little bit dainty for the strap.

    Nice first shot! I like how you cut it down to fit between the lugs.

    Looks like you have the basics down. It's all practice after that. Keep it up!

    Thanks! Im happy with it. The leather I picked up is a 4/5, which Is not great for much besides this particular application. I'll have to grab a chunk of something a bit more versatile.

    Well done certainly not a bad attempt for the first.

    Looks professional. It's been a while since I had the thought and bought some basic tools. Seeing what you did, I should give my first try. Thanks for sharing.
