  1. i would leave some space between letters and background instead of going right up to them.
  2. i don't have an answer to your question but I do want to make the request for you to show the end result. never thought of using a glove to make products. very cool idea
  3. I usually just use a scrap piece of leather to spread glue since i usually have it laying within reach of a project.
  4. looks good. I've been avoiding putting a liner on a rifle sling because too much to hand stitch...now I feel lazy
  5. this will help too. It has good advice to help with your first one. it actually has a list of needed tools/supplies
  6. I didn't see any stamping tools either. not sure if you want to put any tooling on your projects. this may sound weird, but do you have a Hobby Lobby or Michaels over there? they sell a few small projects. Making one of them will give you an idea of what you need. they also have scrap leather and some tools
  7. looks nice. bet that lanyard took as long to make as the rest of the wallet is that circle with initials your makers mark?
  8. Are those your personal holsters? I was just wondering how comfortable they are to wear. they do look really good though
  9. thanks. my son wants me to make a holster for his 44 mag and I've been researching a lot before I start
  10. is this tutorial still available? I keep getting an error
  11. everything causes cancer in California. You should be safe everywhere else
  12. yeah I got mine from a counter top installer too. it was on the floor but the guy said it was discontinued and he couldn't sell that design. told me to just take it. its about 12x24 inches
  13. What thickness/ounce do you guys use for banjo straps? is there a industry spec so the straps fit under the bars? I read a bunch of posts and the earlier post states to use 6 oz but the later posts mention 8 oz. Does this reflect different ways of connecting the straps? i did make 1 before, but the ends were too thick to fit under the bars so we had to take the banjo apart. I do want to sell a couple so i can replenish my leather stock, so I want to get it correct for the customers. I do not have a banjo, but my brother does if I just need to " trial and error."
  14. here are a couple things I've done this is a banjo strap and the first thing I did after the Tandy kit I needed a sheath for my hunting knife so I made this. it has hidden agenda too. i eventually want to make a holster of this style. so I practiced with this my little brother wanted a holder for his leatherman so i made this. one issue i had was molding after I stamped it. It lost a lot of the details
