Started sandin' down the edges on my homemade belay seat. Using the fish fileter technique. Will keep posting pics as I progress with the project.

ALL DONE!!!:D fully adjustable, gear loops, and a cup holder. may be a lil' excessive but it was more for the fun of the project. works pretty good can be adjusted when fully loaded. all in all i'm pretty happy with how it came out. let me know what you guys think or if you have any questions.

all done

stoked on how it works

the fixed side

the "releasable" side

easy to get out of

gotta have a cup holder right?

Looks like the paddle my Dad used to whoop my ass with. Maybe thats why I am so grumpy.
