    A little leatherwork from down in Carolina

    Recently completed crossdraw holster for a Uberti Scofield 45 Colt with stag grips. I forget the leather thickness, maybe 6-7 ounce, hand stitched and hand tooled. Been making holsters, sheaths, rifle slings and etc for a few years now. I don't really do any work for hire, but it's a fun hobby.

    However complicated the issues become... it comes down to one simple question. Which is more important to you Life or Liberty? I've made my decision long ago.

    "Is life so sweet or peace so dear; as to be paid for at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me Liberty or give me Death." Patrick Henry

    I taught myself, that's about it! Lol. Get yourself a good book by Tandy, and start there. Veg tanned leather can be tooled. A stitching groover, some big needles, waxed artificial sinew for thread (very tough, that stuff, and looks good). An edge slicker. And...for starters, I've had good results using minwax wood stain, you don't have to buy the fancy stains that they sell just for leather, especially starting out. Get a little hole punch kit for making holes, not the rotary wheel type; it's only good along the edges. Make yourself a few little cheap projects before tackling a holster, like a cell phone holster or knife sheath. And, I like to drill my holes for the stitches with a 1/8" drill bit, rather than an awl. Saves a lot of cramped muscles, especially working with leather 5-6 oz or thicker. Thinner stuff an awl is fine.
