  6. Rest In Peace Dear Friend- RaySouth

    Sad news. Ray was a staple for this site for the entire time I've been here. I will miss him. Rest in peace, Ray.
  7. Lining Leather

    Why not just line with more herman oak? Thinner than 9/10 perhaps, but go back to back and you're done!
  8. I just meant the news part. Not sure what the rest of the posts are all about.
  9. Gun holster

    I agree with Halitech on the stitch line. I should work as is for a while with no issues. You can always add another stitch line inside the existing one to make it last longer. Also, I would suggest you clean up your belt holes by edging them and then burnishing. Otherwise, looks good.
  10. Amazing!

    An excellent point! I got my start right here about 4.5 years ago. Its an amazing community with a lot of collective knowledge. Welcome. This is true. Its ok to ask a lot of questions, and take from them what works for you, but if you don't put any of it to use, it can be a bit confusing.
