    @Shane 1000, all of your helpful posts and tutorials have convinced me to try my hand at strapmaking. You make it look so deceivingly easy, I couldn't resist any longer!

    As always, awesome posts, awesome tutorial, fantastic work! Your stuff is always the real deal Shane.

    That said.... what's up with the claw like pinky finger? Is this somehow incorporated into true manly strap making?

    This is why I have done this, it's on that off chance that someone like yourself might find it useful and actually get inspired enough to do one OR maybe more for yourself, believe me once you wear one that you make, it'll be a really proud day for you or anyone that gives it a go.
    I'm happy it helped someone, that makes it all worth the effort.

    Jason lol, yes that pinky nail is my brow scratcher and I like to dig the wax out of my ears for waxing the thread I use on my straps, it has a very special glide property unlike anything manly sold on the marketOkay maybe the latter is not true BUT it could be.

    Wow truly inspiring!!! I'm gonna start keeping my eye out for scrap material I can just experiment with and make into a strap. Do you have other tutorials or some kind of channel for it?

    Also what kind of glue are you using, and is that just paint that you're using on the edges of the leather?

    Thanks that's exactly what it was supposed to be "Inspiring" for someone.

    Junk stores like a local Goodwill, Handbags purses belts shoes jackets anything in leather really.

    Any leather glue will do.... regular EdgeKote for edges...nothing fancy here, just tried to keep it as simplistic as possible.

    I started the process last night and I was right in that it's harder than it looks! For me, I think it's the leather. I got some 8oz veg-tanned leather and it is stiff and hard! Might also be the quality of it... I think it's dried out. Still, this is fun!
