  1. Well, to be honest, I plan to make stacked handle mostly from natural color, while using a few black pieces by the end of the handle in between to add the contrast. But I find it difficulty to burnish it because of the shape, as it's not a good shape for wooden slicker tho. @chuck123wapati: thank you for tips!
  2. Are you interested in shipping overseas? (Europe)
  3. @PastorBob and @chuck123wapati: thank you, both of you! And just a question about finishing touch: what to use to finish the leather? I assume, when I glue it together, I sand it with some 240 grit sandpaper (dremmel), and then use...what? Usually I finish my edges with water + burnished, after it's dried, I just apply Fiebing's pro dye/edge kote and that's it.
  4. it's not exactly white, it's more like yellow-transparent. Gets very tacky quick and I use it for most of my leather projects. @chuck123wapati I appriciate this info, but to be honest, I don't even know what exactly a contact cement is. In Europe, we dont use this term. The blue "MOVI Multikol" glue, I attached earlier, is super simmilar to this glue. If anything helps, tho.. https://www.kemostik.com/neostik-en/products-adhesives/universal-glues/neostik-universal-en/
  5. First attempt was made with epoxy, which turned out pretty bad. I'm generally using this glue as for leather to glue together, should it turn out better?
  6. Is there a leather holster (template), that is IDPA approved for Colt 1911? (and preferably IPSC aswell, but can be 2 different designs)
  7. yeah, but I was just looking for a bluegun, to make it easier. @frodo: the BB gun won't save me any money on this @gatogordo: I saw that, but I'm not sure, how accurate are they. You got any of them printed and tested? (any gun, no need for 1911 in particular)
  8. I think it's bracelet. But no matter the leather beneath the edge, I still think it's some sort of wax/rubber that you somehow "install" to the edge.
  9. Customer wanted me to do some specific edges, as I got this photo for reference. Ever since I used to burnish edges with wooden slicker + water, later on I added pro dye or edge kote, depends what I had at home. But these edges seems to look completely different, anyone got any idea on how to achieve them? Would be really helpful.
  10. 1 week ago exactly at this hour I missed my veins for an inch.
  11. Actually, I'm not working often with this kind of leather, but I also discovered what's best to cut with (so far): fresh new blade from the box. Cuts like a butter, is working for me just perfect tho.
  12. ah, so many words for cow in english :D And yeah, I noticed, I had to cut straps using ruler and stanley knife, it's impossible to use anything else. But still, the leather is a blessing, it's really good one. Did the hot water thing on it, showed no special movement at all, so I don't think its veg. tanned.
  13. Okay, this is very accurate answer of what I was actually looking for Thank you. Yeah, I know about single and double stacked mags, they are popular in IDPA/IPSC. Great, now I know what I need for holsters :D
  14. What's a bovine? and what exactly is milled grain? What's the boil test? Well..that's exactly what I did, but they told me "yeah, we just took this hide at one of the sellers, we don't know which one, nor which exact type of leather this is". I think he said it's veg tan, but not so sure anymore.
  15. I got whole hide of this leather into my hands at the local leather shop, but just after 2 projects I ran out of it. It's a really good one to work with, despite it looks bloddy amazing and comfortable to wear/bend. It's 2.5mm thick (about 6 oz.). Anyone knows, what type of leather this would be? Any help appriciated.
