    Scratchmade ESB belt WIP

    Well I was going to post this in my armor thread but that is for armor, haha.

    I just started yesterday, by gluing 2 boards of 3/4" thick pine together, and I used batninjas belt tutorial for dimensions. I am still deciding whether to use real leather, or pleather.

    Any suggestions?

    Oh and here are pics of the wood cut to size on the band saw.

    Good luck buddy, I would think you would want to use real leather, if you don't you might end up wishing you had.

    ^^^ Hmm, I might use real leather, but that leaves me the only choice of handsewing it. Would a regular sewing machine work with leather? And I am not too familiar with leather, and dying it.

    The screen used pieces were brown textured vinyl. If you're going for screen accuracy; vinyl.

    That being said Taco's Leather belts etc look AWESOME! So in essence, its up to you
