    Leather is my go to craft. Instead of a rivet put a line 20 snap on it that way you don't need to remove the belt.

    When the laser was cutting, did it smell like barbecue?

    Super cool. Did you think about using a snap closure so you don't have to half take your belt off to put the tape measure on?

    nice! i made a few of these as well, but instead of the rivet, i used a button to get it on and off easier.

    Wrong side of the belt. First time you take a shit, it's on the floor.

    Neatsfoot Oil https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neatsfoot_oil

    I use it to recondition leather after wetting it for tooling or molding because the water causes the oils in the leather to leach out.

    I don't know if you guys have it down in the states, but if you wanna continue leather work I like my Tandy's Leather. They've got great stuff there and kits for many projects

    Nice project. Won't ever get tired of the woodworking videos, but it's certainly cool to see other mediums as well. Speaking of which, I recall you mentioning awhile back that you were going to buy/had bought a little welder. Any chance we'll see some future welding projects? Unless I've just missed that video of course. 😀

    Cmon you have 200,000 subs. Do like 5 seconds of research before you make leather tutorial videos

    The video was well done, however; the title is erroneous. CHEAPER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK? The basic HAND tools, alone, shown in this video cost over a hundred. That cutting pad is about 50-60 dollars at any store. One thing leather craft is NOT is cheap. I have been doing leather craft for a year now and I have 5-6 hundred in hand tools; and I need many more. Sorry to be a downer, but I hate to see a young person watch this and get their heart broken when they log onto Tandy or Amazon and find out a basic start up kit is around 80 dollars. I suppose money is relative. Again, sorry for being a bit prickish. Overall, your product looks great.

    I already gave you a thumbs up, but here's two extra ones for making me snort at the "thumbs up if you hate the music!"

    Thumps up because the music is worse than "How It's Made"'s music.

    How'd you like that leather? Think it would make a decent notebook cover? I'm looking to make a Midori Travelers notebook and this stuff looked good. Maybe a little thick, but I'm harsh on stuff!
