    Oooh, a cliffhanger!



    Now this is going to be interesting! I'm thinking of giving it a try myself someday, so I'll follow this thread with great interest and curiousity!

    Cheers!

    don't have any buckles, tubes, springs, etc.....no hardware so it's all leather at this point.

    before i do initial thoughts and pics, why do my pictures suck!?!?
    I have a 7.2 mp Sony which I thought would suffice, but any attempt I have at macro shots are just blury and crap....

    i think it's all in the proper lighting. of course i'm no expert but i tend to get good results using my obsolete 5yr old digital camera,

    best,

    This is a great thread. Please give us more details on the process and the tools needed. The strap looks very good.
