I was going to put this on my own thread but since my tuorial would've been the same I figured I'd show my finished product on this thread. I changed the sizes of the template to my liking but everything else was the same. Here are some pics of the ammo pouch belt I assembled tonight...took about an hour to cover all the blocks.

I am loving this idea.  Tell me, where did you get the templates for cutting the final, and how can I get it?

As a side note, I've seen some people take thinner sheets of MDF or hard wood and make hinged belt boxes similar to this... Wish I could find the thread/pics, but I may have to try this soon for myself, I can't seem to find the needle for my awl. And the one I have is wedged in, not so sure it's shapr anymore.

Here are some screenshots of the CAD files I made to create the size of the wood blocks & the size of the vinyl covering and pouch flaps. These dimension are based around a piece of 2x4. Each block really only take 2-3 cuts

Yikes ! !    :o


I just cut one block  to my liking on my chop saw ( miter box ) , then Copied it " Via' pencil " to the next block .

I just eyeballed the Rest ......    Hinged blocks or boxes seem like a Waste of time & added Weight .
 That is unless the Leather or Vinyl was the " Hinged section " that would be fine . But still a PITA to cover correctly . IMO
Thus the Scrap wood reference .  I guess if I wanted Semi / functional pouches I would get some UG ones of eBay .


My whole Rig cost me like  $2.00 for craft staples ( I had everything else lying around ) and about 4 hrs of my time .........
 But I would figure someone could do it for about 5 - $10.00 .  Depending on Quality of Materials .


 Good luck Vod .

That's what I did too. Just took scrap wood lying around and made 2-3 cuts on the blocks.

B.I.N.G.O.   ! !     ;)

Mine weighs less than a " Real "  ammo belt loaded .... hahahaha ....

I'd say  , 1 - 2 lbs ...... which seems heavy ........ But think of a pound of butter   :rolleyes:........ it's not much .

My bucket weighs more ......  :D

That's pretty light weight! It'll troop really well.

Just the leather required to make a "real" belt weighs more than that, and that's not including the hardware that holds it together. Then if you go putting your keys, wallet, phone in the pouches it'll weigh even more.

Good to know!

Thanks for the schematics.  Should be quick and relatively easy.

Ya know I once see someone use some thick card stock and stapled a material of choice over it, altered the design a touch so they could be functional.

They serve the purpose I need them for for .  ;D
