    Bo is a great dude to deal with, he's very Detail oriented, and is in constant communication with ideas and updates.

    Putting some sealer on some parts that are going to be left natural. Not photo worthy stuff. Hopefully will be getting color on tomorrow after sealer dries.

    The members keep upping my game. It's the only way to get better. I think it helps set myself apart from the rest of the strap makers.

    Hey @tonenut , thanks for stopping by. That's a neat present to get for Christmas. Since RB has been to your place I guess you got to see the strap I made for him. It was a joy to make for Bob.

    It's looking great. Beyond expectations.

    Every single one that you have done looks great. From the very first one, until now.

    This is a real game changer. You have really developed a style to your technique. I honestly feel like you have definitely separated yourself from the pack.

    Your straps are already global, in regards to this forum. Through us here you already have the word of mouth advertisement. We need to get you a website up and running. You're already in the process of starting small and building it from the ground up. You've already established a decent base of clientele. With the straps, pups, your sons help and a little capital...you might be on to something here.
