Pack Basket

In a fit of energy I got around to putting proper and better shoulder straps on my pack basket made last summer.  The pack is willow and the leather work is approximately 10 oz. Hermann Oak harness leather.

Once the leather ages a bit they will be beautiful and rustic-looking.

    1. I use home made dubbin. This is an old recipe made from beeswax (from a friend’s bees) and pure neatsfoot oil. I used to use more olive oil but I have been led to believe it may break down leather over time.

  1. How much does the basket weigh, and with the leather strapping?
    Do you have an estimate as to volume and carry capacity yet?

    Hope it worked and keeps working for years to come
