Handmade Leather Belts

Having just come back from my bachelor party weekend and finally coming to terms with reality and all the responsibility that comes along with it, I am able to finally tell the world about the bachelor party gifts that I have been working on for the last 2 months!

After I invited my fellow bachelor party bros along for what was sure to be a memorable weekend, I realized the amount of effort that would be involved in planning a whole weekend of activities that I requested be a complete surprise to me (location included). Hearing about the multitude of email threads replied to, late night conference calls attended, and weird/strange phone calls made to local business owners, I knew that whatever I was planning on making, needed to be epic. The good thing about the internet is that you can learn pretty much anything about anything, in my case, that anything was leather working.

Once I researched and read enough about working with leather, I made some leather dog leashes and collars. The natural progression from there was to make lots and lots (and lots) of belts, so for this project I made 11 full grain leather belts customized with a 3D printed logo and individualized stitching with the recipients favorite color.
