How-To: Easy Falconer’s Gauntlet

************************************************

Materials:

  • Welding Gloves
  • Small Patch of leather
  • D-rings
  • Stitcher or leather rivets

Instructions:

1. Strong leather gloves can be purchased cheaply at the local welders supply store.  I found some great lined gloves for $7.95 a pair.

2. Find some d-rings at the local craft or fabric store such as J0-Ann fabrics.  Do NOT use plastic, metal D-Rings are a must!

3. Use some scrap leather to cut out a round patch, similar in diameter to the D-Ring.  Cut out notches in the center so that the D-Ring can move side to side fairly easily. Glue the patch and D-Ring to the glove with Super-glue or with epoxy so that stitching the patch is easy.

4. Stitch the D-Ring holder to the cuff of your glove and *bingo*. You have a durable, inexpensive falconer’s gauntlet.  For additional re-assurance that the patch is holding, you could glue / epoxy the patch to the glove and also use leather rivets to secure it onto the glove.
