A few weeks ago , a friend brought over a 4 foot rattlesnake...I thought it would make a nice belt...one problem...i don't know how. The snake is in the freezer for now, but my wife is not too happy about that. How do I go about skinning and tanning the snake so that i can make a belt from the skin and save my own hide in the process?

Bruce Rittel has a great snake tan that will come with all the directions you need to make leather. You'll still have to sew it to a regular leather belt for support backing when you finish the snake. As for the little lady, you're probably on your own.


Cuz...
