    Finished a 1911 holster today

    Sometimes I don't feel like tossing the old western gun belt and SAA on. On the occassions I want to go casual I can put a 1911 on however I didn't have a matching black holster that I could use. Until now, that is. Today I finished this holster for my 1911 sidearms.

    If you change your mind about production let me know. I like most of it.

    Let me explain that as it sounds a little petty. I like it all accept the stamp and that is because my family got to "Tejas" not Texas in 1832 not 1836 so the difference mean s lot to me.

    Switching to a narrow-blade (1/8" wide or so) benchtop bandsaw and away from the knife, will pay you dividends. Then a trip around the edges with the hand edger (though I do clean up the edge a bit with a Dremel sander in the company's shaper table), then polishing the dampened edge using a grooved spindle in a clamped-down battery drill, and you'll get the handsome edge finish you've always wanted :-). State-of-the-art is a result, not the method; i.e, you don't need specialized equipment when you know what a primo result looks like.

First time making a 1911 holster .Hell its only the second holster i ever made, will show finished product in a few days. The grips were given to me by a friend years ago ... being replaced real soon by a set i just purchased from a forum member.
