  1. Some of my work. First started in November 2017.

    Second coat of dye applied and the 'antique' look is coming through. There will be more tooling and a few pouches added. Sam:)
  2. Some of my work. First started in November 2017.

    I had a Customer bring his Smith & Wesson, 460 Mag, 8.5 inch stainless steel pistol to my Farm to tell me about a custom holster that he wants me to make for the piece!:) This will be quite a artistic and mechanical task for me since the customer is small of stature and this 72 ounce revolver is too heavy for just a typical belt loop holster. He wants a combination double shoulder harness, something like heavy duty suspenders attached to a belt, with provisions for 20 cartridges. He also wants the pistol to be able to be drawn quickly and very silently from a 'side opening' with no snaps or velcro to make noise when he draws down on a 500lb wild boar or ferel hog. This is the most powerful handgun produced for hunting in the United States, even surpassing S&W's 500 Cal Mag. Velocity is over 2,000 FPS I shot it yesterday and it was interesting to say the least but it really didn't 'kick' any more than any of my 44 Mag's do. It has an elaborate barrel compensator on the barrels top and sides. Wish me luck! Sam:)
  3. Some of my work. First started in November 2017.

    The carry strap was made from a 'Belt kit,' that I had bought and rediscovered yesterday morning and it was already tooled so I decided to utilize it. However, it did make me feel like I was cheating since I had cut, tooled, dyed and fabricated everything else:( I'm not happy with the 'STRAW' dye because it seems almost not much darker than the leather itself so after I tool some more designs, I'll finish up with some darker brown dye as I have several colors. Then I will treat the entire thing with 'Mink oil,' or a similar agent to soften and preserve the thing. Anyway, between fixing computers and IT service work, www.carthageelectronics.com I find I really enjoy the mental exercise of thinking about what to do next! I am meeting a customer today to discuss a 'custom' holster he wants me to make for him and then to inspect an old holster in need of repairs! Praise GOD, life is good:) Sam

  6. Prototype Notepad holder

    Absolutely beautiful. Striving for total perfection is laudable but I've never attained it so far in my lifetime. My leather craft is like me in GOD'S eyes: A work in progress Sam

    Well, the project is coming together nicely but far from done. Here are a few more pictures in sequence. More tooling, pouches, handles and strap to come. First coat of 'WHEAT' dye rubbed in. Fun:) Over all size is 14 x 14 inches and 4 inches wide. Sam

    All stitched up and nowhere to go:) Well that's enough for tonight! I only brought the work home to hand stitch, so that's done! Hands are a little sore:) Sam:)
  10. Some of my work. First started in November 2017.

    Thank Yin Tx and Jack, I'm enjoying myself! Yes, clips can leave indentations especially if the leather is wet! Here's a few more of my 'Purse' project but now I realize it's more of a mans 'Carry bag.' It is heavy, maybe to heavy for my wife. I might even use it on my Motorcycles luggage rack:) I am home now, getting ready to hand sew, which can also tire one out. Sam

    The quest for a purse continues! Sam:)
  12. Some of my work. First started in November 2017.

    Thanks Folks for your kind words and encouragement! Here is my first attempt at making a purse for my Wife:) No patterns bought but I do get ideas from people like you and on Youtube and other WWW places. I make small paper patterns to test joints and bends, etc. Sam

    Here's a few initial pieces that I experimented with; the first is a Kindle fire sheath (not finished) and the second is just a tooling and stain exercise that my wife loves for some reason:

    Beautiful and an inspiration for me to do better:)
