Still got room for good people around here.  You'd find a lot of folks you know..... in person or from the wire.
Thanks, that's the long-range plan. Things must happen here first, though.

Had some time this weekend and went for something quick, yet functional.  This was an 8x8 piece of leather and now it is a nice Valet on my dresser for keys, change, watch, cuff links, etc.     This is also the 2nd dye job using the chestnut hull dye.   I had added isopropyl alcohol to the mix to prevent mold, but I think it helps penetration as well.   In this case I just applied about 1/2 a cup of dye using a wool dauber.    After drying, I oiled with Neatsfoot, then used a bit of Ren wax.  I did not get all the wax out of the stamping when I took the pick, it is now buffed a bit better.

Looks good. The thong through the grommets will keep those corners together nicely,. That chestnut dye is a pleasant color.

That is a clever design. The color looks great. I'll have to make one of those. Many thanks for sharing.

Howdy KT,

Great to hear from you. That is a beautiful Holster. It would be my "Sunday - go to meeting" Holster. If my eyes don't deceive me, it looks the insert on the strap matches the grip on the Pistol. That's a cool, nifty idea.

Many thanks for sharing this with us.

A lot of work went into that holster, it looks great. What are the pieces you used for insets?

Well, welcome back Kt, great looking rig and gun, matching bone inserts on the holster magnifies the bones grips, nice effect and very classy, it's great to see you back again, and your great works of art...

I did a knife sheath for a fella in Alabama, he was so tickled with it, he asked for an IWB for his 1911.

I personally don't like IWB holsters, because they aren't meant to be seen. I work hard to make a pretty holster, just to have it shoved down somebody's britches. So, for the most part, it's just plain and black, but I gave it a little touch.

That looks really good, CQ. Just enough to decorate it.
