Just finished this one for a fellow shooter's Open Top. Two hours in the Walnut Dye followed by (3) coats of Neet's Foot Oil and (2) coats of Skidmores.

Looking good, there, Johnny. I love the color. That open top looks right at home.

I had some extra time and leather. Here are a few more.

The Black Rig is for 1873 SAA's and is dyed with Vinegaroon.

The Slim Jim is for an 1851 Navy Percussion with my usual Walnut dye. The stamping along the pouch fold went askew so I'll put this one on Ebay as a second.

Nice rigs, Johnny. Someone will snap up that Slim Jim in a flash. I really like the color you got on that one.

Those look great, but I have to ask... How do you manage to keep that white thread so white? I start out with white thread, but it is some sort of grey by the time I'm finished  :-[

Many thanks for the kind words.

I use Tandy's "Natural" pre-waxed thread. That might by why. I'm really not sure.

I've used pre-waxed nylon thread brfore and it does stay nice and white because nothing can penetrate into the fibers.

If you do all the dying prior to assembly, the natural fiber threads will stay white. Any dye added after assembly though, can get absorbed by the thread.

Dyed before assembly:

Howdy Marshall,

Wow... those are some awesome looking Holsters. I love the stamping on them. Thanks for showing these to us.

Thanks, Johnny. I had to resort to oil dye to get the brown I like. My walnut dye doesn't make anything close.

Nice color Will, and the holster looks great, I haven't made any new walnut dye since I've moved, I need to do that, finding green black walnuts here is proving a bit hard to do, I was spoild before with having my neighbors tree dumpping hulls for my picking, I'll keep looking..I've used the oil dye before also, and got some nice color, yours came out very nice..

Thanks, TW.

When I was in Arizona, there were loads of black walnut trees lining the canyons around there. Here, nothing. No black walnuts to be had. English walnuts just don't do the job. Too light a color.

Hi Guys,

Long time no see right?  Anyway, this is the latest creation.  I love it when they give you the basics and let you run with it.

Went to a New Mexico State Trooper.

It has a little something extra I thought you all would appreciate.

Beautiful work, kid. That 'something extra' is a nice touch. Very fine work, there.

First off, to Will and Kid Cavalier, you folks are truly artists. People keep telling me that my work is amazing, but that is only because they don't have anything to really compare with it.

@ Kid Cavalier- how did you do the fancy welt on those holsters? It looks like you cut pieces and put them together in a checkered pattern, but it couldn't be that simple. I have never seen that done before.

@Will- Back to the white thread. I am using prewaxed nylon thread from Tandy, and do my stitching after the dye is dry. I still can't keep it bright white though. I am half tempted to take a cotton swab and bleach to the stitching.
