Camera Wrist Strap

camerastrap_title

Well, I’ve devised a new project to keep myself busy, and I wanted to share it. I’ve been experimenting with a camera strap design, and I think I’ve finally got it. I’m going to be producing a small quantity of these and putting them for sale in the store soon. I don’t have an actual release date yet, because I want to have all of them built before listing. Quantity will be no more than 40 and I’m hoping to keep the price under $50.

The finalized design is one piece of leather, that wraps around and through its own scratch guard. These are made for cameras with a lug mount, and the split-ring will be supplied. If you’re interested in ordering, make sure your camera will work with the strap, as it won’t work if you have a loop attachment point on your camera.

In other leather working news – After much demand, I’m going to start making belts for the store. I’ll have more details soon, and should start production shortly.  I’m proud to make them as a regular store item for those wanting one. I think I’ll stick with the simple construction as used on the belt project, but might make a couple refinements. Thanks to everyone that’s been so interested!

    Refinements as in…. a belt that holds tools? If you do, sign me up! If not, I’ll still take a regular belt, those came out way nice. Good job on the camera strap!

    first off, love the blog really love your design and craftsmanship combined.

    This strap is awesome, I would love one for my yashica, but also, I wider long one would be amazing for slr’s.

    also, I love your tools, the awl especially, do you have a source for them?

  11. Your work is awe inspiring man. Truly makes my jaw drop every time I see a piece you make. As soon as I’m comfortable with my situation, I’m going to be getting one of your bags. They look amazing. Such great work man, Keep it Up!

    I was inspired by your work and felt the urge to work with leather aswell. Although having only worked with leather one time before, I quickly remembered how to do it. The result was i 15″ macbook pro sleeve. I am sure it will last way longer than my computer, as do I hope for your site.

    Oh, yes yes! That’s a beautiful wrist strap.

    Glad you’ll be making belts. (My puppy chewed up my favorite belt a few months ago, and I have yet to find an adequate replacement. The new one will be properly hung up between uses…)

    hi — just discovered your site. love all the products and this journal too. all amazing work-really!!
    i am very interested in this camera strap as it’s my “dream” attachment for a special camera i just purchased. i am really into the details & i love this strap so much. wondering if you still make the strap in this kind of “weathered” natural brown color? it’s so beautiful & perfect.even the lighter thread color choice & stitching are so nice! i am a bit detailed when it comes to putting “my gear” together. thanks so much!

      Linda, funny you ask… I’ve got some new leathers in and will updating the wrist straps in a week or so. We’ll have a really amazing brown that I think you might love.
