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!
