I suppose it works well enough, I haven't got anything to compare it to. I mix it 50/50 with water.

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.
Thanks, I thought it would be something of that nature.

That'a an interesting mix of elements, and they all work together. Looks good.

Nice neat work. Making a Pouch with a gusset ain't easy.

You are not wrong! I have picked up a couple of tricks for pre-forming gussets and it makes a world of difference.

I've molded ends over a block of wood to shape them first. On full wrap-arounds, I've put them in damp so they'll take on the shape needed as you fit them.

Nice work on these, too.  Cool

Very nice work, CQ. I like the basket weave on the box. Did you use a stamp for that or make it with a bevel? It looks really good.

Thanks all! The box was pretty easy to do actually, and that is a pretty standard Tandy Basket Weave stamp. Been thinking about doing free hand basket weave, then I get a headache and grab the stamp Wink There was also a sling that went with that box, basket weave and Oak Leaf, but y'all have already seen my slings. And I am still finishing a shoulder holster for a .357 Blackhawk, so that will be posted soon.

The knives were a special order from my Pops, who is apparently pimping me out. For years, he would show me the easy open knife case he had made during his Carney days. So, I made him a nice one for his Birthday last year, and one to use as a template, in case he felt like making more. He sold the template one, and had an order for 2 more. The big knife, was for another friend of his. All I got on that was, "It just has to be cool". Gee, that helped a lot! I think I nailed "cool".

I still have 2 slings and shell carriers to do, all for the fella who ordered the G22 holster and the shoulder holster... and I have to redo the patch on the Bianchi Buscadaro belt. Apparently, he needed more than 3" added. That is a P.I.T.A. that can wait till next year Wink

I suspected that was a stamp. I have several BW stamps I made years ago. One is very similar to that one.

New leather, fresh off the bench.

Been making friends at the local Hunting store, and a lot of leather goods for them. The Boss asked me if I knew the difference between a gun belt, and a regular belt.
2 layers of 6-7oz leather, fully bonded and stitched, with 6-7oz tongue and buckle strap, done Ranger style. Medium brown with black straps and in the background.

I was concerned I fudged my math somewhere, but in the end, it was spot on. I don't do enough of these belts to have it down.



Smaller text is a Tandy stamp, the name is free handed.

Next, is a new holster for myself. Just got a new ZTE3 Stupid phone, and wanted to get it out of my pocket.

6-7oz leather, 3-4oz lining. Dark brown dye, black background with black antique on the meandering border. Still need more practice with that stamp.

Thought about doing it full skirt, but don't often wear a belt. So, a belt clip works, even with my sweat pants.

Thank you. I finished the belt, and think I could really use one. But, I don't wear a belt much. Too many childhood memories associated with a belt Smiley

Very nice work, CQ. I particularly like that belt. Looks great.

I brought these last three posts over from "The New SHOW US YER STUFF Thread #4". Thanks for the pics. Remember to put non-cowboy items on this thread.

Sorry about posting in the wrong place... again. Not intentional, just a bad case of brainfarts?

This is for a S&W 636 clone in shiny nickel/chrome. I'm not sure how it will turn out yet, I'm calling it GothWestern. It is getting shiny nickel buckles for the belt and holster strap, and I'm not sure how much "bling" the owner will want. I figure a few rivets along the belly of the holster, and at the points on the skirt. I keep hearing that line in the DeadPool movie, "Ease up on the Bedazzler Dude, they're Jeans, not a chandelier".

I want to lean towards white thread, or maybe medium brown. Again, it will depend on the owner, but I really like the contrast of white thread. I also really hate the way "white" thread ends up "dingy grey". I'm starting to think maybe a cotton swab and bleach might help there.

Any suggestions on what I did wrong are appreciated. I'll start with the lettering is rubbish, there is no depth, and the dark brown still comes out looking almost exactly like the medium brown. I know somebody in the dye factory is really just screwing with me, and they are in all reality, the same dye.

Oh, and the border on the holster was supposed to be like something I had seen Al Stohlman do on a full skirt. I shoulda looked at it again, before I tried it, as I did it bass ackwards.

I shouldn't even mention that this was my third belt blank.

Sometimes a person is their own worst critic. Lots of work you put into that rig. I think it will turn out just fine.
