Slickshot, that is a nice design. I have need for something like that and will remember how you did this one. Thanks for the pics.

Major 2, you're right, it is leather lined. And this is the Non-Cowboy Stuff thread. You carry that often? ;D

I made my dad an axe sheath the hard way, long distance.  I am in Alaska, and my parents are in Minnesota.  I had him trace the outline of his Camp Axe (Norlund), and my mom emailed it to me.  I then came up with the idea of buying some clay, and making an axe replica from the clay.  Once it hardened it shrunk, so I had to add some to get it to the correct (approximate) dimensions as the original.  Here is a picture of the Sheath I made on the actual axe head that I mailed back to him, and he received yesterday.

Please take a look and feel free to critique.

Thank you.

You nailed that design. It looks good. I made a sheath for mine years ago and have been disliking it since. Maybe it's time to replace that with one like yours.

A 1916 Colt 1911, 1913 RIA Cavalry holster, 1913 USMC belt, shown with a WW2 Spitfire compass, Grandfather's picture as a Army Air Corp Cadet , and post cards he sent home from Kelly Field in 1917. He wrote on the back of each one.  He passed away in 1991 at the age of 93. Fortunately he was never sent overseas as the war ended when his training in Jenny's finished.

You all are posting some great work. I always enjoy seeing what everyone is doing.
Here is a little project I just finished. Its a pretty simple cobra style rifle sling. Can't hurt my feelings so let me know what you really think of it.

I hope I can sneak this in here without being roughed up by the sheriffs. I've written a western novel which is free on Kindle till the 16th.

I had a fella ask me for a rifle sling. Aside from time served with our Uncle Sam, I never used one, let alone made one. The only specifics he gave me were, "Thumbhole sling, non-slip and padded". Oh, and he wanted his initials. With such exacting specifics, how could I go wrong?


Overall length is about 45", and the strap width is 2 1/2", with 1 3/16" swivel straps. It is 4-6 oz veg tan, with 2-3 oz veg tan backing, has 3/4" foam padding covered with 3-4oz suede. Dyed it with Saddle tan, and black antiquing, and black border and back, stitched with white thread.

Thank you sir. I guess the truth will be after he puts it to use, and see how it works out. I was really guessing at length and width. I did ask a few times for measurements, and never got any. Once again, making it up as you go.

Captain Quirk; Most swivels on sporting rifles that I have seen are made to accept a one inch width, at the swivels.
