When you put the Conchos on the holster, did you do it before you lined it or after you lined it?  I am curious because I am making some more slim jims and was thinking about putting Conchos on the holster then lining it.  This way I possibly could avoid damaging or scratching my sixguns.

Howdy Tommy
I put the conchos on before I line the holsters.  Grin Grin. You dont want to put them on after or you will scratch the guns  Cry Cry.
Hope this helps.

Well, I made my very first holster this last weekend.  Keep in mind, it is my first attempt.  I learned alot.  The next one, which I start tonight, will incorporate what I've learned.   Smiley

Uncle Chan,

Mighty fine for your first holster.  I can't wait to see what you're turning out once you've learned this art.   Wink

Later,

Thanks for the encouragement, gents.  I greatly appreciate it.  I started the match to the above one tonight.  We'll see how it turns out.  Already made a bit of an oops with the stitch groover.  Oh well....we're all human, after all.  Smiley

Night, all!

Attention...
Irish Red O'Toole will now be sporting this on the range.   Grin

There is a matching shotgun belt and cartridge slides on the way.

If he scratches this there's gonna be hell to pay... Grin

Camille's right, Kid. That rig goes way beyond being just a holster set. Truly fine looking work.

Wow, 'ol Irish is turning into quite the dandy with that rig.   That looks like something from the set of the old 'Wild, Wild West' TV show.
Next thing you know he'll be wearing silk shirts, ties, and vests to go with it.

Well since we are showing off. I do not do Cowboy leather but I do leather work.
I specialize in reproduction comic book costumes.

Here is my finest one I did for myself that I wore (and made Variety Magazine to boot) - copy of Halle Berry's X-men movie costume

Great work Doc, do you not think there would be enough money in speacialty western leather clothing to be profitable?  I have seen some staggering prices on Duke type vests, botas and other items that would fit your specialty style of working in light weight leathers.

Beautiful KC.......Really nice job!

I really liked the color on that one.  What is it are there more than one color used.  I'm wanting to do a almost Ox blood color and then, go back over with a darker brown to settle in the low areas like antiquing,  Maybe even take off some of the dark with an alcohol rub to bring out the red in the highlights.  You got just what I'm looking for!

Rap,
I used a pigmented neatsfoot oil first then went over it all with a medium brown antiquing stain.  The stain settles in the low areas and then I use a horsehair wheel to burnish and remove the stain.   The neatfoot oil is gonna stay my secret. Wink

Hi All,

Just finished my second 1911 holster.  What do you think?  Any advice?  Learned even more.  Next one will incorporate these lessons.

Thanks!

Uncle Chan

Those look good. My only advice at this time is to keep crankin' them out. That's the best way to improve our skills. I seldom make one exactly like the one before because I always have something I want to do differently. One thing I like to do on that type of holster is to sew in a small wedge of leather between the sides at the top around the trigger guard area so the holster doesn't grab the pistol as much so they're easier to pull out and the bluing doesn't get worn off so fast. Another way to accomplish the same thing is to put a strip of leather all the way down the stitch line between the sides to make the whole holster easier to fit to the gun. It isn't better necessarily, but it gives you another option.

Howdy everyone!

I'm new to this group, and to leatherworking. I completed my first project which is a Slim Jim holster from a Will Ghormley pattern. The engraved design is very close to a photo of a holster in Packing Iron.
