Found this Al Stohlman holster craftaid buried in a box someone gave me. Decided to give it a try and practice my tooling. Pattern was for a .38 revolver so I used a K-frame S&W Model 10 mold from Bunkhouse Tools. I wanted to try some antiquing gel and went with Med. Brown and hand stitched it just for fun.

I really don't like most of Tandy's craftaids, . . . but that is one I would love to have in my drawer.

I would use it at least once a year I am sure.

You did an excellent job on that CowboyCurry.

May God bless,

Dwight

Thank you for the comments. I dont get a lot of customers asking for floral carving, mainly basketstamp or simple boarders. I decided to go through Stohlman's holster book and the F.O. Baird's patterns to practice tooling. Ill see if I can scan this craftaid and make up a PDF for anyone that would like it

CowboyCurry,

Very nice work.  Really like the way it turned out.  I see you took the basic pattern and made it your own with some cleaver deviations.  I wouldn't mind having a copy of that craftaid as well.

Thanks, Cowboy, . . . like I said earlier, . . . not sure how many times I may ever use it, . . . but I'm sure glad I got it.

I will definitely do the pattern just for practice though.

May God bless,

Dwight

Cowboy,

Thanks for these!  I used Photoshop to compile these into one pdf, and re-scaled it to what I believe is close to actual size.  The pdf fits nicely and will print on an 11x17 inch sheet of paper.
