DIY - Leather work
#11
Hey Gravy, thanks! You sure do make some nice looking pieces. I do a similar treatment to weatherproof the leather. I used a polymerized linseed oil mixed with pine resin, sold by Tried and True as "varnish oil", and I mixed it with melted beeswax, then applied that to the leather, hot out of the oven. I haven't made a sheath yet, but will soon I'm sure.

Bay, I would be willing to give it a shot for just cost of materials. If you live nearby (richmond area) and are willing to leave your pistol with me for a couple of days, that is. I know it's a leap of faith. Understand if you would want to pass. What kind of holster are you looking for?

Hay Rock; I'll take You up on the offer ...... and THANKS!!!! - I'll need to get a leather holster from my river house, for you to take measurements - it fits my .25 pistol, but the leather strap that secures it in the holster is not long enough for my .22 - the .22 fits fine, but the strap is too short.

Sure thing, whatever info you can give, will help. If you want it custom molded, rather than a very close match, then we can sort that out too
