So i got it in my head I can make my own strap and i have created my first disaster. :). Now mind you this is the first time i have ever worked with leather or made a strap so I'm not too embarrassed but i definitely have a long ways to go. The keepers are a mess and i will be redoing them. I don't know that tooling leather folded over is the best choice either since i have belts thinner than this thing. But it was a fun couple hours and I'm almost proud of the burnishing since i used a chisel handle and spit. Next attempt will be better.
