Product Description

Learn the fundamentals of belt construction while making a lined pant belt with Slickbald. He will cover sizing, belt and liner weights, splitting the liner, design centering and layout, and basket stamping. This workshop will also cover shop tips and production techniques to help the student hit the ground running.

Materials to bring: Students should have their own professional collection of properly shaped, sharpened, and polished tools: pencil, head knife or similar, strop, round punches (3/16”), #3 and #4 common edge bevelers, wing dividers, small to medium basket stamps, maul and stone. Chris will try to bring tools to fill in the gaps.
