Thank you sir. The rail looked like it added an extra 1/8th to the sides and bottom, so I added a 3/8th thick fuller. Made it a little difficult when it came time to slip the holster through the loop. I'm not sure if I should have made the skirt a little wider near the slits, it looks a little weak there.

Here's a combo phone and gun pouch.  It's made of upholstery leather.  Made this for my old phone, the new phone is a tight fit. I have to make a bit bigger one.

I just finished this yesterday. It's a wrist watch fob. During the summer I don't like wearing a wrist watch. Saw a picture of one of these in a Tandy ad.

Howdy Silver Rings,

Looks like you have been busy. Nice work. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I like the closure you put on your phone & gun pouch.

I have been making belt wallets for ten years or more.  Sold a few, mostly just trying to make some thing that is comfortable to me. Been making the phone / gun belt pouches for seven years. I am still trying to improve my design.

Here are some pictures of the belt wallet I am currently using.

Nice work, SR. They look good.

I like the combo phone/gun pouch. If the phone gives you any grief, just toss it on the ground and plug it. Grin

I didn't use to carry my phone with me much except on walking the neighborhood with my wife.  When I made this pouch with Velcro for fastening to my belt it made it easy enough I carry now when I go out anywhere.

Yeah, finding a place to carry a phone can be a bit of a problem on warm days. Other than a back pocket in your jeans or a cargo pocket, there aren't a lot of places for one. Especially with the newer phones. Looks like a good design.

New holster for a Ruger LC9S. The guy asked for a left hip holster, got through cutting out the leather, and noticed I cut it for a righty. Dang lefties get me all confused Wink 6 Oz leather, 3 oz lined, saddle tan dye, retaining strap w/thumb break.

This was the second attempt, I did cut the first one for a righty. Works out ok though, because I mentioned the mistake, saying that if he wanted to wear this gun on his right side, I already had the leather cut out for it. He is going to take it too. My new friend, he works in a hunting store, and has a good collection of guns because of it. I told him, you keep buying guns, I'll keep buying leather Smiley

Well, there you go. Just tell him to buy a second LC9S and he can wear both at the same time. Cool

With no formal training, I make holsters, and make the patterns as I go. What is it that you find interesting about it?

Well, he wears the LC9 on his left hip,for hogs, and a Ruger 22 on his right hip for snakes... and this is the holster I made for that gun-

Nice .22 holster, there. He uses a 9mm for hogs? I'd think that's a bit wimpy for the job. Those things can be tough.

Thank you sir. I agree that a 9 isn't quite like a scoped out SBH, but it only takes a .22 in the right place to drop a hog. But hey, who am  I to argue details of a hog hunt? I'm just in it to make some spare change selling holsters Wink

@TenWolves, I'm still interested in your full thought on that LC9 holster. Hearing "it looks nice" feels good, but I don't learn anything from it. If there is a strong point or a weak point, I really want to know what it is, so that I can adjust the next time. Like I said, I have no formal training, I have read up on Al Stohlman's Holster book, and make up the rest as I go. When I first started doing retaining straps, I thought it would be cool and different to do a 3 strand mystery braid on the strap. Many people said it was a bad idea, it could catch on the gun. So, I don't do the braid anymore. On my shoulder rigs that I got from Stohlman's book, I didn't like the plain round yoke piece that holds the straps. So, I modified it into a skull, and that has been a hit. So please, give me something I can learn from?

That's pretty good. how did you get the darker background areas? I like the way it fades into the lighter un-stamped areas.

If you use a water based dye you can thin it out as you go just by dipping your brush.  You can probably do the same trick with an oil based dye by using mineral spirits or whatever dilutes the dye.

I use a resist of mop and glo and an antique gel to get much the same result. But there are many methods of doing a lot of things, so take that for what its worth.

Does mop and glow make a good resist?  I have only ever tried super shine for a resist and most of the time I am not happy with the results but i do a lot of work where the grimy results add to the character of the finished piece.
