  1. Ruger Blackhawk Holster

    Hey All!, Just finished a holster made with a Nocona boot from a pair. These boots are tall and yielded plenty of boot top for this holster. It's built for a Ruger Super Blackhawk with a 7 1/2 inch barrel. I have one more boot in this pair so I'll be able to produce another holster identical to this one. This holster goes out to a long time friend of mine.
  2. Holster and Gun Belt for my Brother

    Hi, guys! So my dad got my brother a .22 revolver for a birthday present and my gift to him was that I would make him a holster to go with it. ...several months later... And here it is! Let me know what you guys think. Comments/critique are always welcome. I read Jim's tutorial in the holster/knife sheath part of the forum and it really helped. Thanks for looking! -Ryan
  3. Latest holster

    Just completed another holster. This one for a Glock 19. I use 7/8oz leather. If I could find the slide/frame junction, I'd press a line in there, but I can't find it through that thickness leather. Tips, anyone? The holster looks kinda plain without some additional boning. Jeff
  4. Finished my first holster. 1860 Colt 44 Slim Jim. NIce simple design to start with. Thanks to members "Northmount" and "Frank" for significant help with the pattern.
  5. I wanted to create an atypical looking holster as far as pattern design that was inteded to be carried at the 4/5 o'clock position. I used 8oz Hermann-oak, and 1.2mm tiger thread for the stitching. The dye work was done with an air brush, and fiebiengs' mohogany & black. All comments, critiques and criticism welcome! Happy Leather-crafting!
  6. Hi forum! It's been a long while, but I figured I would post a couple pics of a holster I made recently for an XD. It was fun making it, not happy with the way the tooling came out, but the customer liked it-- I guess that's what really matters. This is the 2nd holster I made, so any feedback on the tooling or if you have a comment about it, please let me know! Thanks for viewing, -JW
  7. How to customize a holster

    Ok, I am lost and beyond my experience! The only tooling I have done is on a leather valet I have made. My delima would be my father in law has a veg tan holster for his glock. It is mass production, measures at about 9oz. Oiled finish. It is very plain with no tooling and he would love scroll work put on it. How would I go about this without ruining the original finish to much, or destroying the holster completely. I did inform him it was possible due to very little experience!
  8. This is my first real leather project out side of repairing some horse tack or something on a saddle. I'm going to use some kind of top coat and then put on a mahogany antique stain and buff it off. I'm still looking to see what I need to do to accomplish this. From what I have learned a top coat finish needs to be applied to the inside as well. I'm planning on using a leather lace up the side of the holster. I'm still looking to see what I will need for that as well. I'm also thinking that I might need to use rivet at the top and maybe bottom of the side. I have a few item's on my border that I wish I could do over but to late now. Any advice would be great on some ideals to finish this project would be great.
  9. Went from seeing a picture through 3patterns 1 prototype to this. Made from 8/9oz leather sewn with 207 white thread which I thick makes it pop.
  10. Latest holster. I'm also finishing up a pancake style for a Glock 26, but I have to hand stitch it, as I can't figure out how to get the machine stitch line close enough to the wet-molded top piece. It's a flat-backed holster, so the top piece is quite raised from the flaps. I have both right and left presser feet, but can't make the turns without the feet hitting the raised part. I could start and stop stitch lines, changing feet between lines, but that would take way too much time, and it would look stupid, also. I thought about getting the in-line feet, but the rear inline foot would be too far behind the needle for some areas, and if I just used the front foot, I couldn't see the stitch line. Still, there's not a lot of stitching on a pancake holster, so not a big deal!
  11. Hi, everyone!! I hadn't been around in a while... you know how it is, busy with the day job... boy, does that take up a lot of time!!! Anyway, I just wanted to share a new project I started working on for my barber: a holster for his trade tools. He wants something the likes of a shoulder holster, resting between the ribs and the arm, with straps crossing on the back... I don't know what these are actually called but I'm sure you get the idea. He proposed the idea, and it started to tumble around in my head. I'm very sure it has been done before, but I didn't want to get influenced by looking for holsters made specifically for a barber's scissors and straight razor. I remember having read around here about wet forming and I started off by making a sort of cast out of a couple of slicing boards. First, I traced said scissors and razor, pasted them on one of the boards and cut around with a hand saw: I then proceeded with sanding off the edges of both the negative and positive halves of the cast to give room for the leather. I wet the leather (around 6 oz, natural color, veg tan), inserted it into the cast and kept everything in place with a few hand press and vises After it was all dry and properly formed (roughly a week after because of very bad weather when I started) I dyed both sides of it: brown on the rough side and black on the side that will be shown, just to have the borders shine a bit diferent than the rest of the piece... it doesn't show in the picture, tho. I already punched the holes for the stitch. Anyway, it's all I have done for now. I'll keep sharing the progress as the idea keeps taking shape. There are decissions still to be made about what fasteners to use, the thread color, what kind of rivets I will use, etc... so, I'm open to ideas!! Have a nice day everyone!! it's nice to be back after a loooong while!!
  12. I figure I have been lurking for long enough and I should post a couple pictures of holsters I finished for a customer and his son last week. I am still working on getting my coloring consistent but I like how these turned out. Just want to say that you guys are seriously talented and have set a very high standard to achieve. Any critique of the holsters is appreciated.
  13. Hello all, I hope each of you are doing well. Just wanted to share a holster I finished up this week. Comments and Critique are always welcome. Enjoy! Scott
  14. From the album Campbell Leatherworks

    This is a holster I finished this week for a client. I didn't make the belt, just liked how it looked when put together.

  20. Not to brag, because it is about 40% sheer luck, but when a customer asked for a closed end on a 1911, I was a little daunted. I'm glad to say it only took two sketch holsters to get this just right.
  21. Non-printing pocket holster for Ruger LCP. Lightweight molded holster with slightly heavier back panel, designed to prevent printing and keep holster upright in pocket.
  22. Latest holster. I didn't have anything that would work for the snap attachment to the holster. I ended up grinding down the heads on the Chicago screws to fit into the male part of the snaps.
  23. Just finished another holster, this one is for a Ruger P345 .45 acp, partially inspired by the one that Walt Longmire wears, and partially by the holsters that I've seen worn by the local troopers.
  24. Well...just thought I'd share. This is the first pancake I've made...designed the pattern myself That's about all I'm happy with... I was thinking I should trim the end up nice and close to the end of the barrel, any thoughts on that? The stitches are terrible and 'puckery', stitch lines are a bit 'wobbly'...okay, a lot. I guess I'm happy with the tattoo work, turned out better than I thought, and the forming isn't terrible. There's no way I can deliver this, so someone's Christmas gift is probably going to be a little late... Anyways, as I said just wanted to share...as always, pointers are always welcome!
  25. Hi all, I just finished a hip holster for a customer, Taurus .44 Magnum. This one was a weekend quickie, but I think it turned out ok. Normally I like to add an extra curve to the top and a thong or strap for the hammer, but this one is meant to be very simple. Thanks for looking. -Jake
