Making a LINED IWB Mag Pouch - Springfield EMP & 1911 Mags

This video shows how I made a lined IWB (Inside the Waistband) mag pouch for the Springfield EMP & standard sized 1911 .45 ACP magazine. This is the third of four videos I made of a batch of gear for Atomic Cowboy - a new eyewear company. The leather is 3-4 ounce Herman Oak, dyed with Fiebing's Pro Saddle Tan and Dark Brown, sewn with 277 natural colored bonded nylon thread, edges polished with Tokenole, and sealed with Fiebing's Resolene (diluted 1:1 with water). If you'd like to pick up a small batch of hardware to build your own mag pouch like this one, I have a package of snap components available on my website: https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/hardware FIND ME HERE: https://linktr.ee/Eric_Adams ► PATTERNS: https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/digital-patterns ► IN STOCK https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/in-stock ► FOLLOW: https://www.instagram.com/adamsleatherworks/ ► TOOLS & GEAR (affiliate links) Air Brush - Badger 150 Airbrush: https://amzn.to/2PrSnnB Air Compressor - Senco PC1010 1-Gallon Air Compressor: https://amzn.to/2BCN5gO Bone Folder: https://amzn.to/2Wdbbbx Brass Maker Stamps: https://www.leatherstampmaker.com/ Burnishing Gum (Gum Tragacanth): https://amzn.to/2JmeRT3 Burnishing Gum (Tokonole): https://amzn.to/2WgkY0f Cardstock: https://amzn.to/36ycaqY Cocobolo Burnisher: https://www.proedgeburnishers.com Contact Cement (Barge): https://amzn.to/2tCPiIs Contact Cement (Fiebling's - Non Toxic): https://amzn.to/2VRTdv8 Contact Cement (Weldwood - this is what I use): https://amzn.to/39L2883 Cutting Mat: https://amzn.to/2QPgv2q Dye: https://amzn.to/2Fmk2zZ Edger (C.S.

Making a Car Pistol Holster for my Center Console

I show how to make a car pistol holster for the center console of my vehicle. I've had this idea floating around in my head, and while it may not be the best car holster for everyone, it worked perfectly for my needs and it's an idea I've been wanting to try for a while. I didn't want anything permanently installed in my vehicle since I'll probably be replacing it (the vehicle) soon and don't want to cause any permanent damage to the center console. This leather car holster provides protection for the gun, while also allowing me to carry an extra magazine for those shady areas. And speaking of shade - the gun is also equipped with a rail-mounted light since evil never sleeps! 0:00 Introduction 0:18 Making the Pattern 2:12 Cutting the Leather 3:01 Dying the Leather (and my fingers) 4:00 Assembling the Leather Holster 7:04 Forming / Molding the Leather Holster 7:53 Applying Acrylic Sealer 8:33 The Final Results FIND ME HERE: https://linktr.ee/Eric_Adams ► PATTERNS: https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/digital-patterns ► IN STOCK https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/in-stock ► FOLLOW: https://www.instagram.com/adamsleatherworks/ ► TOOLS & GEAR (affiliate links) Air Brush - Badger 150 Airbrush: https://amzn.to/2PrSnnB Air Compressor - Senco PC1010 1-Gallon Air Compressor: https://amzn.to/2BCN5gO Bone Folder: https://amzn.to/2Wdbbbx Brass Maker Stamps: https://www.leatherstampmaker.com/ Burnishing Gum (Gum Tragacanth): https://amzn.to/2JmeRT3 Burnishing Gum (Tokonole): https://amzn.to/2WgkY0f Cardstock: https://amzn.to/36ycaqY Cocobolo Burnisher: https://www.proedgeburnishers.com Contact Cement (Barge): https://amzn.to/2tCPiIs Contact Cement (Fiebling's - Non Toxic): https://amzn.to/2VRTdv8 Contact Cement (Weldwood - this is what I use): https://amzn.to/39L2883 Cutting Mat: https://amzn.to/2QPgv2q Dye: https://amzn.to/2Fmk2zZ Edger (C.S.

The first pass was set to "Ramp" engrave with a speed of 250 mm/s and a Min/Max power of 15/40 percent.

The thing I really like about The Leather Guy's website is that nearly every single hide shown on their site is a listing for the actual hide you'll be buying, complete with photos and a description of blemishes for that particular hide. Very cool that they do that! District Leather - I've never personally ordered from them, but I've heard good things about their leather. Acadia Leather - I've never purchased from here either, but I've also heard good things about their leather. Horween Leather - At the risk of sounding repetitive, here's another I've never ordered from, but their leather is very well known. Weaver Leathercraft - Most of what I order from weaver is buckles and tools, but they also sell leather. ► VIDEO EQUIPMENT (affiliate links) Camera - Fuji XT4: https://amzn.to/3xl8FR7 Lens - Fujinon XF16-80mm F4 R OIS WR: https://amzn.to/3rMoXBv Tripod - 62": https://amzn.to/362WOuP Tripod - Travel Size: https://amzn.to/2Vt14R5 Tripod - Spare Release Plate Ball Head: https://amzn.to/3byQmhC Portable SSD: https://amzn.to/3btaZvv

EDC Everyday Carry Tray | Woodworking with the CNC

Making an EDC Everyday Carry Tray from Eastern Red Cedar. In this video, I show you how I made an EDC (Everyday Carry) Tray on my Onefinity CNC machine. I used the CNC machine to recess a pocket in the bottom of the EDC tray to incorporate a piece of vegetable tanned leather to line the bottom of the everyday carry tray. ► PATTERNS: https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/digital-patterns ► IN STOCK: https://www.adamsleatherworks.com/in-stock ► FOLLOW: https://www.instagram.com/adamsleatherworks/ ► TOOLS & GEAR (affiliate links) CNC Machine: https://www.onefinitycnc.com/ CNC Bit - 1/4" Spiral Downcut: https://amzn.to/3C2vpJt CNC Bit - 30d Engraving Bit: https://amzn.to/2WycmGv CNC Bit - 1/4" Radius Bowl Bit: https://amzn.to/3flOV9X Air Brush - Badger 150 Airbrush: https://amzn.to/2PrSnnB Air Compressor - Senco PC1010 1-Gallon Air Compressor: https://amzn.to/2BCN5gO Bone Folder: https://amzn.to/2Wdbbbx Brass Maker Stamps: https://www.leatherstampmaker.com/ Burnishing Gum (Gum Tragacanth): https://amzn.to/2JmeRT3 Burnishing Gum (Tokonole): https://amzn.to/2WgkY0f Cardstock: https://amzn.to/36ycaqY Cocobolo Burnisher: https://www.proedgeburnishers.com Contact Cement (Barge): https://amzn.to/2tCPiIs Contact Cement (Fiebling's - Non Toxic): https://amzn.to/2VRTdv8 Contact Cement (Weldwood - this is what I use): https://amzn.to/39L2883 Cutting Mat: https://amzn.to/2QPgv2q Dye: https://amzn.to/2Fmk2zZ Edger (C.S.

Making an Inside the Waistband Leather Holster and Gun Belt - Sig P365 CT Laserguard

I received an order for an IWB1 (inside the waistband) style leather holster and gun belt for the Sig P365 with the Crimson Trace LG-422 Laserguard attached, and the customer asked if I could film the process and post it to YouTube. So, here ya' go! The entire build took roughly 4-5 hours, spread over several days. ► Snap Hardware: T-Nut: 6-32 1/4" Barrel - I buy these from two different sources. I get 1/2" flange from McMaster, or 9/16" flange Black Oxide from Index Fasteners.
