Lone Tree Leather Works
The finish you choose for your hand tooled leather belt will have a very dramatic effect upon the appearance but particularly on the tooling. Finishes can accentuate or really highlight the edges of the tool marks. If you value the look of natural leather we have that finish available also -
If you are looking to turn heads, the Red Rock Special and Black and Tan specialty finishes are the way to go.
*** F-001 through F-005 finishes are free and included with the price of the patterns listed on the patterns/prices page
Mahogany Red F-001

Solid Black F-005
We can use black leather, and then add a glossy finish.
Colored Background F-006
This particular option was very popular back in the 1950's and 60's. We like it so much we have decided to bring it back. It's a real eye grabber!
This option is only available in combination with any of our floral patterns - due to difficulties combining the various colors with our dyed finishes, colored backgrounds can only be combined with our "Natural" finish - that is the finish depicted in the photo examples listed here. The exception to that rule is black back ground - it can be combined very nicely with the Mahogany Red or Oakwood Brown finishes.
When using our order form, if you want a colored background just tell us in the comments section and indicate the color desired. We do have other colors available in addition to those listed here.
Due to the time and stress involved in this delicate process, it is the only finish we charge extra for -
Add $70.00 to a custom order for this option

They are without a doubt, the most dynamic color combinations we have ever seen in a genuine leather belt. Soft and luxurious in both feel and appearance, the leather in these belts is unlike anything you have ever seen. Add this very special finish combo to any of our floral patterns for $70.00 extra
Names, initials and other special features will cost extra.

Real West Series --------------------------
If you prefer a heavier format for added strength and rigidity with a smooth lining sewn into your belt, you can request our lined and stitched option on almost any custom belt combination. We use light weight horse hide for the liner glued in place and stitched along the border for a long-lasting, highly durable combo.
