  • belt buckle

    a simple belt buckle i did using three types of wood, the middle one is brazilian cherry, know localy as 'guapinol' the sides are honduran rosewood. the clear one is 'huesito'. finished with a generic sealer and then two coats of spray can polyurethane.
    i know you may not get the names but till i find a way to compare the types of wood that you have there i think the local names will do for now.

    have a nice night..

      Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

        Beautiful! Where do you get the hardware? How do you attach the hardware to the wood?

            here they sell this normal buckles(that one had some rhinestones attached to it but i sand them of) in a hardware store that sell leather(the whole cow hide) but they don't sell the blanks, sadly. anyway i use clear epoxy to joint the buckle to the wood and that seems to work fine, this is the firts one i make, if that is not enough, i will drill holes in the metal and use small screw to secure it a little more.
            but so far is working the way its done.

            now i will try to put inlays on the new ones.

              That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              Reply to Question about tilting head saws
              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
