One More New Collar

After seeing the nice, new collars *******, Roxy, Gaston and the others are sporting, I remembered I needed to get busy and piece together the parts I gathered up to make Mensa a new collar.

Seeing how this was the first Sunday in a long time there wasn't Football, and I didn't know what to do without it, I figured this would be as good a day as any.

It went together a little easier than I had anticipated, but I see some things I'll do different next time.

I got most of the pieces from these guys:

VERY nice Chaz! Great Work! You made that from scratch? Im impressed!
I like that a lot Chaz. It turned out beautiful. When are you starting to take orders? :thumbs-up
Hey DD you took my line!! I love it chaz..........put up a price list, and I'll send in my order too! You spell it..... O- R- S- O- N.............hahahahaha (or R-O-T-T-E-N works too)
Here's the parts list:

Simple, really.

Basicly just a matter of stamping holes in the right places, and dyeing the leather black.

At about $50 for the whole shebang, don't look for me to go into business slapping these things together.

But Mensa has a birthday coming up, and she's been real good, so I think she's worth it.

Oh no! Another hobby opportunity.

Seriously, thanks for posting the links. I've been unhappy with the collars we have for one reason or another. Nothing, like DIY.
WOW that is so nice! I can't watch! cause I have school now and I already have enoug hobbies to distract me lol!

But Mensa has a birthday coming up, and she's been real good, so I think she's worth it.
She already has a birthday coming up!!!!!!!! time goes so fast!
WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! tHAT is the best collar I have ever seen. How long to put together?
WOW Chaz that is superb,you need to go into production :) there is a big market out there starting with all the members here.Now here is the spelling M-I-S-C-H-A and T-I-A etc,etc HAHA :).
Very nice Chaz, how will ******* ever keep up with collars like that?? Chaz do you know Tandy carries a tool to make the edges of the collar smooth. I have one and it just finishes the collar nicely, and is very easy to use.

Sorry! Beat you to the punch. I would love have personalized collars like that. Mine wouldn't turn out as nice as what Chaz makes. Somehow the letters would be all crooked and probably misspelled. I lack in the detail department.:lala:
That collar is awesome!!!! Yes I think you need to start taking our orders. That would be: GASTON & ROXY!!!!!!!

It took about two hours to slap together. (not including the time I spent trying to find a screwdriver tiny enough for the screws on the backs of the letters)

Thanks, Okie-Dobie. I'll check out the local Tandy Leather Shop and get one of those. I always thought such a tool existed, but I don't know what it's called. The catalog isn't much help.

I think my next project will be a harness. I need to make one custom designed to hold one of those flashing red lights you see on the back of bicycles for our night-time walks. The leather folks have a bunch of parts for making horse tack. Doberman "tack" can't be much different.
Wow thats brilliant!! And Mensa looks fab in it :)
