  3. Cheers! Thanks for the comment. I’d love to tell you I have a deft enough hand to cut that precisely by hand, but I don’t. I used a Glowforge laser to cut the relief and the inlaid letter.
  4. My Brother-in-Law has been toting around the same store bought Tony Lama rodeo wallet for the last several years. It's to a place where it needed replacing with something a little more personal...Buttero leather inside & out. 3oz exterior and 1.5oz interior pockets. Laser engraved cover.
  5. Desk valey made from Blue and Grey French calfskin. Handstitched boarder, painted edges and an inlaid letter in the center. Happy Leather crafting...
  6. I use Uinter’s edge paint and primer from rmleathersupply.com. My process for veg tan is as follows: 1) sand and even up the edges w/ 150 grit sanding belt 2) bevel edges and apply 1 coat of Uinter’s primer and let dry for 20 min 3) apply 1st coat of edge paint and let dry for 20-30 min 4) buff knock down uneven spots with 500 grit sand paper (can be found @ Walmart or any auto parts store’s paint and detailing section) 5) apply second coat of edge paint After this you can leave it as is or apply 80/20 beeswax/paraffin on the edges and burnish with a waxed canvas cloth. Happy Leather crafting! Stick with it, the name of the game is trial and error so do what brings YOU the best results.
  7. I recently picked up a TECHSew 2750, and its proved very versatile. It’s has sufficient attachment and options that it will satisfy a variety of projects
  8. I am interested in snapping up your Regad M3000. Just to clarify it is 110v Model? Would you be willing to share a photo of the unit? Also I live in GA, and can coordinate shipping for you. Feel free to DM me or email me smithleatherco@gmail.com Cheers, Mark
  9. I have a Glock 43 Blue Gun as well as Glock 43 with CT red-dot mold. $40 each or $70 for both I will cover the shipping cost. Paypal only! Please direct message me with your interest
  10. @Joon1911 @ComputerDoctor I appreciate you checking out the post, and very valid feedback.
  11. @YinTx the indentation isn’t tremendously deep. The lighting makes it look a little a further recessed than it is. Accidental discharge is something I’m fanatically paranoid about, and take great care to mold aroud the trigger guard. @JLSleather it does stick out a bit from the barrel length. To get the angle of reach to the handle that far back was kinda the challenge, and that was the trade off that was made. More trial and error needs to be done to get this right. I appreciate you folks checking it out.
  12. 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!
  13. He does a rolled edge from the main body of the wallet that will cover the skiving and make uniform thickness throughout the piece.
  14. Howdy there, Overall the shape of your sheath design is appealing. Goat skin isn't really famous for its stamping quality, and it looks like you used relatively thin leather, which obviously wont afford a deep impression. You mentioned that the stamping started crisp, but wound up being faint suggests that your leather was too wet when you started tooling. Your leather almost needs to appear dry, yet cool and only slightly damp to the the touch. I would suggest using a 6/7 oz vegtan cowhide for your next sheath, and see how that suits you. There are really useful threads here that will point you in the right direction for stamping and tooling. Leather work is all about experimentation, trial and error. Keep tinkering with different materials and techniques until you find what works best for you.
  15. All blue guns have been spoken for. Thanks!
