    New forum member blown away!

    First thing that I have to say is "INCREDIBLE WORK GUYS!"


    Been a member for a little while but never noticed this subforum (old age) and now that I started to learn leather craft I am inspired by this forum. Craftsmanship, vision and execution all very impressive.


    The impetus to learn the craft was the purchase of a PAM-320 and since then I have had a much better appreciation and understanding of what goes into making a nice strap, wallet, belt, etc. Love is all in the details.


    If I may, I'll be calling on you to help me along. Just wanted to introduce myself to the sub and let everyone know how much I appreciate this forum and WUS community.

    Made this one tonight. On the fence about it. Never worn a bund strap because they were never comfortable.

    Don't know if I'm just not used to it or don't like it.

    Thoughts?

    Very well done, however like you I am somewhat cool about Bund straps. Your work is superb.

    Looks well made but it's too big for me. I like just a little rim around my bund.

    That is what's wrong with it! Took me a while to see that. Time to take out the blades...

    Had time to do this one tonight. Practice, practice, practice! At this rate I'll catch up to you guys in about a year or so I reckon or that's my goal at least.

    That one looks great. Do you have leather experience or are you just cracking at it and doing this good of a job. I really want to do it myself but I'm busy, lazy, and lack any sense of "handy" skills.

    Thanks Castor! I started from scratch about a month or so ago after I picked up a Panerai.

    Being the cheap bastard that I am I figured that I could save a few bucks by making what I want.

    There are so many YouTube videos, tutorials (many here on WUS) and other leathercraft forums that cut the learning curve a bit.

    May look good from the photos but when I look at some of the professional work I come up lacking.

    Its good therapy after a rough day at the office if nothing else.

    The second strap looks good.

    The first one looks like a cuff to me,

    I think that bund is great, just too wide for that watch. If you took some off the sides I bet it would work well. Also that's a very nice Sinn you have there ;)
