    I do love having toys :) However, the laser I am talking about is not mine, it is bigger than my car and cost hundreds of thousands of $.

    The stitches on the strap are flawless , it's nice to see you made such an excellent strap with your free time. I really like the yellow combo.

    Not all straps I make are yellow :) although it seems to be my favorite color. I call this one vintage latte brown. The color of the thread in real life matches the leather better than I can capture in pictures for some reason.

    All the hard work finishing the buckles really paid off. The way the light evenly reflects the light is beautiful and the soft rounded edges are just enough but not too much. Nice!

    Really like the way this one came out :) IMHO the color of the thread goes really well with the leather.
