Great project. Just curious, why didn’t you secure the 2x4s to the wall with the 2” side next to the dry wall?Thanks.
Thanks. New odd question … why not just screw the plywood through the drywall into the wall studs? No extra lumber cost, and the dry wall would “give” enough to accommodate the heads of the T-nuts. Of course, I didn’t see any other wall plans leaving out the extra studs.
Thanks for sharing the above information. I was about to ask the estimated weight for each "rock." I'm pretty sure I can handle the weight of the sizes you described.
Choke tube cases and pen cases.
Thanks, and you are welcome. Making stuff with leather is a fun hobby.
Don’t know why the pix is so fuzzy. It is in focus on my phone. :-(
Good job.I was impressed with the chisel holder. I'm copying that, soon! Mine still live in the plastic holder they came in.
Thanks for the link. I make shotgun choke tube holders without any type of hold down for the top flap, and I make pen holders with a strap the top flap fits under ... less measuring and less cutting!
Thanks for this suggestion. The handle holders are well worn, now! I think I’ll just use your idea the next time I make holders.
An excellent idea. I made a few handle covers out of my father's-in-law ld leather jacket and my father's old wool shirt. Mine needed a bit more insulation. Is the leather you used thick enough to provide good insulation?Thanks for sharing this project.
Was good to see signs from ATL. My grandfather lived close to the Big Chicken. The Varsity is one of the first restaurants I remember visiting as a child ... back when cars had running boards. WaHo is the other.
If you are referencing curved corners, purchase flat washers in various sizes and use them as a corner template. Cut slowly. There is a circle template on the market ... the name and source escapes me now ... which is laser cut out of metal. It looks like bubbles coming out of a kids bubble wand. It is a nice gadget to have, but the washers work just as well, and only cost about 25 cents each.
Being your first project, then it was outstanding rather than just good!
Good job! I did this with one of my brother's snake boots. Before I stitched the pieces together, I filled in the stitch holes the where the strap and buckle had been. Boots are a great source of study leather.
Good job you might consider using a saddle stitch. The advantage of a saddle stitch is that a half knot is tied with each stitch; thus if the thread breaks during use, the stitches won't come out . I'll used my vacuum sealer the next time I make a holster!
Good job. Nice stitching. Where did you get the branding iron?
