Anyone have experience making a belt? Seems kinda fun

If so, what.would you say the difficulty is 1-10? 10 being hardest. Also, was it much more economical than just buying a belt?


Tandy leather belt blank + Belt buckle -> Profit.
Easiest and cheapest thing ever for a 100% vegetable tan leather belt.
Been wearing mine for like 15 months now, with lots of character.
Never dyed, never conditioned.

Link to article?

Yep. Belt, buckle (recycled from an old belt) and leather belt keeper.
No treatment, just let it age au natural. But I prefer that natural tan color.

Cut excess leather with a kitchen scissor and made a hole with a drill. Used excess leather as a keychain.
I went a few months with only 1 size hole, but had to add two more. (One for sagging, and one for tighter pants).

I'll post pictures of my belt tomorrow.

LOL. Love the article. I've been on that website a couple time and never seen that one.
But yes, thats exactly what I did. But I did it ghetto without all the puncher tools and xacto knife lol.

My keychain is just a rectangle with a hold punched through lol. Guess it's main purpose to keeep the keys from jangling too much.

Nope, just copped and rocked. Nothing else is necessary.
Yeah, buttons are a little stubborn, in that they open up sometimes (you can keep the keeper moves out of place in the 3rd picture). It gets a little better once the leather softens up.

Get one!

Handmade this belt at my local Tandy Leather Factory.


This Bottle Hook is by Corter Leather, but I ordered it from Need Supply Co.


Both treated with olive oil.

what's on the hook? Rust? why did you decide to put olive oil on the hook? or did you mean the leather piece attached to it?

@lckychrmsbboy the shiney part was the finish, but it's rubbing off now. And yeah I only put olive oil on the leather piece.

@lckychrmsbboy two weeks, but it only took like pne or two wears to start. It might be different with the silver one though.
