    First try, and thank you

    I was asking because (rookie mistake) I slathered about half a bottle of Fieblings Medium on the thing and lost some tooling, and took a week to dry. Working on another now and WON'T make that mistake again!!!!!

    JL, it's a Tervis so it doesn't sweat.... Also, the contents of said sweat-free container were likely the most important tool up there!!!!! haha

    Thank you! Couldn't have done it without this forum. There is alot of truth in that statement about the boy. He is the youngest of 4 so I've got a little of both going on. Talk soon. -Ed Punched the holes for decorative lace. Finished it after the photo. Will post the sheened product when I get to the house. Thank you!

    So you tool after you dye? Or before you cut?

    First of all I would like to thank you all for providing such a wealth of information. I’ve been lurking and reading for a few weeks and my Son and I just finished our first holster. I couldn’t have done it without this resource. Ok... Ordered 7-9 veg tan from “T”, scoured this page and borrowed some tools and here we are. I still need to seal it but I don’t think it’s too bad for a first try. Thanks again.
