Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

There are a lot of times you want everyone to know the maker of your camera by wearing a blazing advertisement around your neck every time you use it. Just kidding. Those straps are functional, but they’re not ideal or stylish. If you have a smaller camera (Leica, mirrorless or the like) you’re looking for a quality mini-strap for, why not just make it yourself? Matt from Wood & Faulk put together an excellent walkthrough about how to make your own leather camera mini-strap.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
