Another, why didn’t I think of that. I could see wooden suspenders or belts showing up soon. Just add or subtract a wooden link when the waist needs adjusting.

That is one fantastic idea! A wood suspender is even a better idea! As soon as I figure out how to make it length adjustable, I’d try making one! Any ideas anyone?

Cool idea.

amagineer, I’ve had a wooden belt for about 20 years now. I’ll have to dig it out and post a picture of it. Even has a nice wooden buckle.
