Brand-new week. Workin’ out the bugs.

GIBSON GUNBELT BLACK CHERRY CROSSCUT--APRIL 22 2015

Still working out the bugs on the new website.  Had an amazing weekend…didn’t do squat!  Exactly the kind I like.

The gunbelt in the photo above is one of my hand-carved and stamped black cherry crosscuts.  It’s two layers of premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather, bonded and stitched with heavy nylon cord with hand finished and burnished edges.  The thread color on this one is called “Henna,” and it’s a cool color that I use occasionally.  The buckle is a heavy, polished brass Weaver design with a partial tongue.  This buckle works extremely well on these gunbelts because of the 1/4″ thickness of the two layers of leather.  This buckle doesn’t require the belt tip to be bent outward for fastening.

I have a few things working on the bench, and I’ll be adding them to the site as they’re completed.  As I’ve mentioned before, I decided a year or so ago to stop accepting advance orders and eliminate the waiting list–the dreaded “backlog.”

Hope you have a terrific week.  I’ll be posting another bunch of completed items as soon as I can get ’em photographed.

Thanks for all the kind words and suggestions on the new site.
