Leather Geology Field Belt

A while back I designed and made a leather field belt for my geologist girlfriend.  I had the best leatherworker I know teach me, and it is actually super fun.   It includes a rock pick holster (quick-draw), a field notebook with space pen and pencil, a leatherman & holster, and a loupe with a holster.

Take an oversized piece and soak it in water for a few hours, then nail it down with BRASS tacks as tight as you can around the object you want it formed to. In this case, I used a wood block so I didnt ruin the book.

Once dried and formed, use punches to punch through the leather so you can thread the backings onto the formed pieces.DSC_1422 DSC_1423DSC_1424

The pattern you see in the small tab here was “engraved” onto the leather using a raster laser.
