Time wise it was a bit of an eye opener.  The leather was about 6 ounce some thing from a scrap bag.  I cut out from a standard pattern piece, but since it was so light, I bent it around the mold and did a trim with leather scissors.  I also cut out a tab for the back to hang it, I think, or maybe there was a fold over piece.  Once I had the shape, I marked several points and ran the decorative stitching more or less freehand on the machine, then sewed the belt loop, then sewed the side seam.  The belt actually took longer because I had to mark, with a ruler and cut it out, then run the strap cutter.  The piece was too short so I had to joint it neatly with a patch, and punch holes and slots.

The interesting part is this is about the effort that probably would have gone into s similar holster from the period, if it was just a utility pouch.  Obviously the best work was pretty special.  But it is instructive to just do a flat out piece and not laminate, or glue welts, or stain, or stamp, or make sure the holes were punched centered to the thou, etc...

my friends axe had a bad cover on it. so i decided to make a proper axe sheath.
the axe is a Mohawk Belt Axe, 2-1/4" blade from track of the wolf.

the button on the sheath is deer antler. the string is kangeroo lace. another friend has some pipe beads to finish the lace. this will give it a mountain man look and keep it from pulling out of the sheath.
How do you un-button it?  I see no 'button hole'?

The button is fixed to the flap. In the photo, it's not fastened. To fasten it, wrap the thong around the button once or twice. To un-fasten, just unwrap it.

I really like that hatchet cover, it is both clean and dirty at the same time. Clean, straight weave, and rough, dirty, grain around the border. Did you use a background tool, or something else?

Here is something a little different. It is a stool we use when playing cowboy. This one is for my pal Three Cut.

I'm not a leather worker but I don't let lack of skill and talent keep me from trying.  Here is a leather wrap I made to cover the ugly forend on an early Winchester 1887.  It turned out homely but is functional.

That'll work good. Those '87's can get warm out there on the top. Thanks for sharing.
