No problem

For the lacing I'd suggest something like the waxed linen points in the link below, they'll take some abuse and not run the risk of rotting or snapping as I've had happen with leather laces.

Right then...the finished article...and before anyone asks, no, I didn't make it because there aint no way on earth I could make something this good without a serious amount of practice, time and expense, but I thought you guys would like to see what a nice man in Scotland made for me, just waiting for the matching sling now. Its fabulous...

I thought you'd like it, I think its fantastic and I'm over the moon with it. They guy is very talented and makes western gun rigs mostly but I gather he's capable of anything in leather.

He's working on a sling for me at the moment, as soon as its done I'll post a few pics here.

Here is a link to his website...

Now all I've got to do is learn how to make these things myself!!!
