    Making A Leather Belt

    Here is a link to Don Gonzales page on belt layout. He also has a great video. http://dgsaddlery.com/how-to-measure-belt-size/
  2. Beautiful job. My concern though would be that when she opens the purse the pistol is visible.

    They both look incredible. What stamp is that you used for the dragon scales?

    Tattooed leather

    Great work. Love the skull. I have been thinking about trying this. Do you use leather dye, or tattoo ink? Is it sealed, and how does it hold up?
  5. Finished up a few Valet trays for my sisters family. Black oil tanned with hair on cowhide. Dark British tan with hair on cowhide. Ox Blood with an embroidered denim insert that my sister did. https://www.snapfish.com/library/share?w=snapfish_us&c=snapfish&l=en_US#e4XNfL4Yg2e-gxr92YZIug/AUS/27941012564070/SNAPFISH
  6. Thanks. You know I did do the edges on the veg tan ones. I went back and looked at the oil tanned one, and I must have forgot that step damn it.
  7. Finished a holster for an M&P Shield. Oiled veg tan, with a little antique on the rose. I have only tooled a few things so kept it simple,
  8. Clip. She wanted simple. Sorry I don't have any more pics.
  9. I've started on a messenger bag. Crazy horse pull up leather from Zack White.
  10. Sorry. Nothing to show on the inside, just open space. The back has a large pocket as you can see in the first pic of the post.
  11. Finished the bag. Just need to make a shoulder strap.
  12. Finished up an avenger style holster for a Ruger LCP. Thanks to JLS leather for his write up on making the pattern.

    My leather bound B-bender project

    That is awesome. Does it change the sound?
  14. You could always add an extended strap. If you do it right it would looked like you planned it that way. Looks good otherwise.

    Looks great. Looking forward to seeing the finished product, and how it fits.
  16. Very nice. What tool did you use for the stamping on the back?

    Valet With Hair On Cowhide Insert

    Finished up a Valet Tray tonight. Black oil tanned, with a hair-on cowhide insert. White braided nylon thread.
  19. FYI...The newer chips you see in cards are not RFID. The new ones are called EMV (Europay, Mastercard, and Visa). They have to work with the terminal, and create a unique transaction code each time it is used. Most have to be inserted in the terminal and you have to wait a few seconds till it establishes a link. Some "dual" cards can be touched to the terminal, but they are what is called near field, and they have to be very close if not touching.
