  1. Thank you for posting the finished holster. That turned out really nice. Good job! I am curious, where did you find a pattern for the tooling or did you recreate it yourself?
  2. Excellent execution!

    Maker Mark

    This should be made into a pinned thread for newbies looking to get information on maker's Mark's. There is an incredible number of stamp makers listed here with recommendations and examples of their work.
  4. That rig is nicely executed.

    Naval Baldric

    So I thought, “Why don’t I just make a better one for a fraction of the cost?” I think a great many of us in leatherworking got started with that very sentiment. Nice baldric.

    Burnisher attachments

    Chief Jason and Ed in Tx I have been looking at Pro Edge Burnishers and was wondering if you guys would mind sharing which burnishers you use for your various projects. My apologies for high jacking your thread aroh99.

    How did you get into leather work?

    My adventure in leather began when I saw how much it was going to cost get a holster I wanted. I told my Dad I was interested in trying to make a holster, so for my birthday back 2012 he bought me a Tandy Deluxe Leather Kit. I invested in a copy of Stohlman's How to Make Holsters book, and never looked back. I gave my Dad the first holster I made. I used one of the patterns in Stohlman's book to make that holster. I made the holster I wanted not long after that.

    Nicely executed.
  11. Thank you for taking the time to explain how you layout your border. The holsters are awesome. Good job!
  12. I have liked the San Carlos border since the first time I saw one of your holsters all tooled up. I have since made a few holsters with that border. Your work is nicely done, and I look forward to seeing these holsters completed. Thank you for sharing.
  13. Good job dikman! The best investment anyone aspiring to make historically accurate holsters could invest in. I was stoked when I got my copy. I also got Cowboy and Trappings of the Old West. Both books are great resources for pictures of old west related leather.
