  1. Slim Jim or California Holster provides a great uninterrupted canvas to carve. I made two of them for my Uberti 1860s. When I made mine I made the belt loop independent as opposed to folding over leather to create it. I sewed the belt loop on before I glued in the pigskin lining, it made it easier for me to sew the belt loop on. I hand sewed the holsters which included toe plugs. No matter how flawed our masterpiece is most folks will not even notice the flaws.
  2. Hey Josh, thanks for the information. I have the Stohlman holster making book. Your completed rig provides a much better example of the completed technique.
  3. Josh, awesome work. What style of lacing did you use on the top holster? Thanks Steve
  4. Nicely done. I like the meander and San Carlos borders on western style holsters.
  5. Here is a link to the aforementioned book. https://www.holstory.com/
  6. Nice work! Please share pictures when it is finished.
  7. Being organized is a big help. Nothing worse then searching all over for a tool when working on a project.
  8. I got my maker's stamp from Leather Stamp Maker (https://www.leatherstampmaker.com/home.html). I submitted my design to them. They worked with me to correct some design aspects to make it work. Prior to making the stamp they sent me a proof for approval. They made my mark out of brass, and they have a host of accessories to support using the mark.
  9. Nice work on the Rhodesian. The shoulder holster looks well executed as well.
  10. I don't know if you are still looking for a pattern, but one of the members on this forum, Brazzos Jack, was kind enough to share a pattern which he created for the holster.
  11. Nice work. I really like this type of holster as well.
  12. Beautiful workmanship on both of those scabbards.
