Custom Leather Working

I’m making this page for a very dear friend of mine, as a way for users that have seen some of his leatherworking skills to be able to get in touch with him. In addition to being my dearest friend on this earth, is is also a member of the US Armed Forces, a husband, and a father, so his time is limited. He will usually agree to make a piece or two per month, but that’s about all he feels comfortable with at this point in his life.

So, rather than give out his email address, or phone number, I’ve made a way for you to reach out to him instead. Fill out the form below if you are interested in having some custom leatherwork done. He’s truly capable of many things, but most often lately enjoys working on holsters, magazine holsters, and even guitar straps.

I’m going to include a few samples of his work here for you to see, so you’ll know what he’s capable of.

 

My custom holster for my 1911

This was the second holster he ever made I believe. I’ve been wearing it daily for a year and it’s still as strong as ever. I get asked almost everywhere I go where someone can buy one like it. Well, this is the guy. The cost for this holster would be about $125.00

Another 1911 holster – Left handed back draw

My father-in-law has been a fan of mine since he first saw it, but prefers to carry a little more concealed. I called my friend and asked him to make one as a gift for a south-paw. This is what he created. It’s beautiful. Cost would be about $125.

Other Leatherwork

This is by far the most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned. With only the instruction of “Brother, do whatever you think you’d like to wear” he turned out this product. I love it!

This is the guitar strap he made. The hoof-pick adjustment band is a beautiful idea!

The hoof pick allows for adjustment of the strap, within a range of about 10 inches.

Her personalized it with my name in it. Awesome!

 

 

Contacting the Maker

If you would like to get in touch with him, please pay attention to a few simple basic rules, ok?

BE DESCRIPTIVEIf you send a vaguely worded email you’re most likely going to get ignored. More is better.

Bad Example: “Can you make me a holster?”

Good Example: “I’m interested in a holster for my Beretta PX4 Full size pistol. I’d like a belt/paddle/concealed holster and I wear mine on the right side. I really like the brown color I saw on the pictures, and the basketweave is pretty cool. Would it cost more to get it engraved with my initials?”

LONG DISTANCE CUSTOMERS BEWARE If you want a holster for something he already owns, such as a 1911, then it’s easy for him to make you one without your firearm. However if you want a holster for your Smith and Wesson model 25 revolver and he doesn’t own one, you’d need to get the gun to him and let him hold on to it for a few weeks while he custom fits your holster. Of course, unless you’re willing to bring it down to him and come pick it up again, that option is kind of out for you because he can’t mail firearms. (Against the law and all, ya know.)

DON’T PLAGUE HIM: Like I mentioned before, he’s a FULL-TIME kind of guy, and he does this because he loves it. As such he does one or two orders as he gets time, to the tune of 1 or 2 a month. It’s likely you might have to wait three months for a piece of custom work to be done. Emailing him 15 times will only get you ignored and me yelled at. He doesn’t check email often, but he’s diligent about getting back in touch with people. He’ll more than likely call you (which is why a phone number is required below.)

Ok.. that’s enough for now.

If you’re interested in something custom, please fill out the form below IN ITS ENTIRETY and it will be automatically emailed to him.
