  1. thanks everyone. I got texts messages for 24 more orders. only one complained that 30 was too much. but he also complains how much dinner is every shift. I just told him that it's an expensive hobby and that the helmet tag would last a long time. and was made for a fire fighter by a fire fighter.
  2. been making helmet tags for my fire dept. 11 fire fighters in my station. around 500 total in the dept. been selling at 30 a tag. Is that a good price or am I over charging.
  3. did you make the suspenders as well. if so I'd love to see more pics of them

    leather radio strap

    that's a very nice holster you have made, would love to see more. im currently trying to make my own. I'm usually doing knife sheaths for case knives and sell them to some of feed stores and western stores around my area. sometimes i do custom made sheaths and gun holsters. Laredo fire department would always go to college station for training for years. now we've got a state of the art international training facility. i've been in the Laredo fire dept for 17 years with the last 7 years assigned to the technical rescue station. I got a few orders from guys in the dept to make some straps, anti sway straps and glove holders. so hopefully I'll get busier with the more I sell. it's a nice hobby to make a little side money. all the best to your son fighting those wild fires. glad he's back home
  5. I didn't want to use a groover on the front but I was able to get a pretty decent stitch line. other than that it was a good project. I lined the front with suede and the back is veg tanned.
  6. bought some scraps of elephant leather. 1st time working with it. anyone have any tips on how to work with this stuff. had trouble smoothing out the edges. but it fits knife well sits on hip comfortably
  7. Now that is a work of art. Very nice. If you gonna work with stingray again invest in some tin snipping tool.
  8. Thanks everyone. Your kind words mean a lot. I'm getting better every time. Posting on this website and a few pages on face book have given me great feedback and advice. Thank you You know I'm loving red thread and black leather more and more myself. I'd love to see some of your work you have done.
