In the absence of our new "Show Us Yer Stuff" thread, this one will be it. Even if we find the old one, we can still continue with this one. The other thread was getting a bit long anyway. I do want to get it back so we can cruise through it for ideas or just to appreciate the work shown. I'm on that.

OK, leather workers, start showin' yer stuff!

Heck, I wish I had some. Those things don't take kindly to getting skinned. We don't have many around here, either. The last rattler I saw was a Mohave Green in Kingman, AZ.

Appreciate the kind words. Here is one more.  Killed the rattler while deer hunting near Blythe, CA many years ago and have used it all up.  Got six holsters from that snake.

I'm new at all this so I don't know the correct way to deal with the skins.  On mine I used the snake tanning solution from Tandy.  During the tanning process you use a pencil to remove the scales.  You use the eraser end and touch down and drag the scales off one at a time.  The colors are really vivid before and the color dims a lot after removing them.  Other than that maybe someone with more know-how can give you better info.  Thanks, HH

Thanks HH,
On the very few snake skins I've done I scrapped the membrane side,washed well and tacked to a board. Finish was shellac using the same mixture as on leather....

Howdy..
I just made a rig for a CAS shooter. It was a little tight when I lined it. Next time I have to make the pattern a little bit bigger. But leather is an amazing material, can make it bigger  Grin Grin

Looks good to me. that's a fine rig. I made a pair that were snug when lined. They were hard to get wet molded. After it was done, though, they were the best possible fit. Good job.
