It's a fun hobby and you don't need many tools for it. You can start leatherworking with a scratch awl, stanley knife, steel ruler, blunt needles, hole punches and waxed thread. It's good to have some knife which will let you shave off some leather thickness in some areas (the stanley knife will be of no use here). I use a mora carving knife for that but there are special knives on the market. You may also need some leathercraft glue and gum tragacanth for finishing the edges.

First attempt, some errors, especially cutting the buckle slot on the long strap instead of on the short strap, beginners mistake. Slide1.JPG

Does anyone have a source for Panerai type buckles with screw-in bar. I ordered some from AliE****** but when they arrives, they has standard spring bars, not screw-in bars.
