Looks good. The BW is pristine. Great job, there.

Thank you.

Hi, a lady I work with raises hunting dogs as a side business.  She doesn't really like snakes.  She found out that I do leatherwork so I get a few copperheads to skin every month or so.  This one is in payment.  I washed the scales off so the colors aren't as vibrant.  I used tiger thread for the first time and like it fairly well.

Hi
My attempt at Meandering.  I worked out that the meander needs to be 1/2 inch side by 7/16 tall.  This belt is just a half inch.  The finish is a day or two of sunning in the dashboard of the SUV, one coat of EVOO, one coat of Skidmore's, and Bag Kote.  The back of the belt is EVOO, Skidmore's, Gun Tag, and Bag Kote.

What stamp do you use to get a border like that? I have seen and like those borders but have never seen the stamp.

Hi
That's a D444S, it's the middle sized one.  There's also a larger D445S and a smaller D443S that Tandy carries, but Springfield leather doesn't.

Do some experimenting before you do a belt, getting the guide marks at the right distance is difficult for me.  I also used a Spoon shaped modelling tool to smooth the edges of the guide line back into the stamps.

Haven't had any leather projects to do for some time. My friend got a Sig 45 acp and wanted a traditional leather holster for it. He had just harvested a buck of a lifetime, so I carved a likeness of it on the pouch. It is of one piece design, except for the sew in toe plug.  Jw

Ah, nothing beats a good 1911. That's a nice looking holster for it.  8)

Here is my first attempt at a pancake style holster. That’s a lot of hand sewing.

Yeah. That'll keep you busy for a while. I suppose I'll have to give that a try one of these days.

Hi

Interesting design in that you folded on the muzzle end.  I've never seen a holster designed that way, but since you're making a pancake that works well.

Here is my latest I made. It is for a S&W 629-1 with a 6" barrel.

Nice, Rube! Nice!

Thanks Marshal.
Have been getting a lot of requests for basket weave lately.
There are so many options for BW. I probably have 10 different ones. I have made most of them myself.

Something a little different. I have this FNX .45cal Tactical w/ Red Dot. It's a big honkin sidearm being a double stacked magazine. It's nice to be a Suppressor ready barrel. I do like it and needed a holster for it. It also needs a large sweat shield because it has a cheese grater handgrip. A pancake style holster was a good choice and the belt loops are very good at keeping it in position and having a very good retention aspect. Any who, here it is. Thanks for looking!

That's a good looking Holster. Nifty design!

Nice job Rick.


Here is my latest one. Had a guy want a 1911 holster with a strap and his name on it.
He said he loves it.
