Belt Buckle!

Recommended Posts

What better time to make a buckle then when you need a personalized gift?! I recently went on a tour of the Rocky Patel Cigars factory in Honduras and was met with such hospitality that I had to do something to try and repay it. This was my effort.


It's a white limba core that was glued into a curve to fit the body better. I then made some alternating veneer ply for stability and aesthetics. The top and back are wenge, inlaid with the Rocky Patel logo in more white limba, and bound in limba BORDERING on black. I used the buckle hardware from Tandy Leather Supply to attach it to the belt.

It has a tru-oil finish polished out with steel wool and paste wax.
