Just finished up this 51 Navy Holster. Decided to try something new with the stamping but not sure how I feel about it.

That stamping makes an easy meander border. You got it very even, too. Looks mighty good.

There's a Craftool stamp that makes a similar pattern when used like you did. They're not too hard to make if you don't want such a busy detail in it.


You can make it with a few sunburst lines and it looks good.

Thanks. Yeah, that would make a nice border also. Thanks for the tool tip.
