    That's a beauty! I'd like to see more photos of the closure mechanism. Well done, indeed!

    Thank you everyone.
    The metalwork was my favourite part of the job. I used Chicago screws rather than rivets so that I could remove the cantle for polishing.

    The closure is just a leather strip with magnetic bag clasp. I might try making a hinged cantle in the future.IMG_20210817_090928_copy_878x537.jpg
