SINGLE PLY HARNESS LEATHER
WESTERN STRAIGHT BROWBAND HEADSTALLS
TABLE OF CONTENTS
The size or width of a headstall is determined by the head strap and can be anywhere between 1/2" to 1" with 5/8" being the most common.  Therefore, the examples below the width or size is based on 5/8", you will need to adjust the data for other widths.   
NOTE:  
If the item is shaped, the times are based upon the item being hand cut from a pattern;  if a clicker die is used the times will be reduced.  
Also if the item is shaped, the dimensions used in the materials list are based on the outside measurements of the item.
