    Put this together today. I based it on Böker's limited edition version of the Mini Pry sheath. Not having measurements, I went solely by photos online, simplifying the design. My stitches are improving a bit, and the snap was my first attempt. I'm happy with the results.

    Thanks for looking.

    Really like the way this one came out. Digging your stitching. Well done sir.

    Luck is the by-product of preparation and opportunity colliding. Stay Lucky!

    Working on wet forming the original sheath my Camillus Bushcrafter came with. The sheath is of nice, thick leather and great craftsmanship, but had no fit to it. So far, it's looking good. Hopefully it dries before May....
    Thanks for looking.

    You can use a hair dryer. I have done that in a pinch

    Almost completely dry. Here's a sort of 'before and after', using my wife's as the before. Turned out OK! Much better retention, but honestly, I really prefer the fitted look. Looks more custom.
    And- it was easy to do!

    Thanks for looking!

    Made a hatchet cover. The old cover was falling apart but it has such a beautiful patina that I couldn't throw it away. I tacked it to the wall above the fireplace tools at our family cabin.

    Great job! What made you go with a tongue rather than snap arrangement? I agree with you about that patina but one day, the new one will look just as good!

    Hi Ben! I'm poor at setting snaps so I used the tongue and belt way to close it. And I've found I also like the feel of closing it that way.

    It's been a stressful week with Lil Mak. He is teething and has 5 teeth coming in all at once. He's in pain, and subsequently so am I. During nap times I've been sneaking in some shop time, seems to be the best stress reliever I've found.

    Currently putting together a pocket holster for my g27

    Too bad, the leather on my new wallet is too soft for this

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My old wallet is working better but it's too big. I needed that size before when the German ID card was way bigger than the new one in the standard cc size.

    Here's some samples:

    Maybe I have to stamp some Euro coins onto my Euro wallet and Swiss Franc coins on my standard wallet...

    If anybody has a good idea please share them with me :)

    Trying it for the first time[​IMG]
    My belt holder for my fenix pd25 died so I decided to try making one to replace it. Bought a bag of scrap leather at hobby lobby, a punch, needles and waxed cotton thread. My wife now says I’m obsessed. She’s probably right

    OK. She is right. Had to make a patch for my 5/11 pack.
