Introduction: Cat5 Belt
I had an extra belt buckle from my belt being old and worn out. I hated to get rid of the buckle. I did not have any leather, but have lots of old networking cable. I took basket weaving in the scouts years ago and thought I would never use it. We I had a chance to now use it and re-purpose some unneeded cable. Could of used different color cable or painted the finished product but did not. Eenjoy!
