    Looks great Seeker. Especially working with thick leather. Do you soften the leather up to make the flaps close or use what I use...velcro strips to close the flaps? Also, what preference of leather do you use..like cow, pig, ect..or does it depend on a grade quality? Thanks!

    Nope. just do a strip that's about 11 inches tall and 2 wide. Then flip the strap around to have a 3 1/2 tall pouch.

    Re: new pouch update!

    ...Hey Arturo...Master Jango

    ...how difficult is it to actually do leather work???...in comparison to lets say 'airbrushing'???...I was thinking of trying it and did not want to get over my head so to speak...and if I do what tools would you recommend???...

    Take care

    Dude, the list could go on forever. it really depends what you would like to do. I would say go to www.tandy.com and check out all of there leather stuff. I only have tools for cutting, riveting, dying, and a few others. but they do carry tons of very cool tools which i dont need to use yet.

    Re: new pouch update!

    Seeker, you pouches look great.

    I was messing with your original photos a bit in photoshop to do a comparison. I hope you don't mind. I color corrected the shot a bit to match the production shot.


    <- Seeker pouches left ------------------------------------------------------------------ production right ->


    Very nice!


    Of course it's really hard to see detail with web pictures. The one thing I was thinking that maybe could be done was to weather the edges of the leather a bit. I did notice in your newer shots that the new edges did appear a bit lighter which I really like compared to your old (and equally awesome) pouches. The sizes of the new pouches look very close to the production. Working the leather in over time will in my opinion do justice to the pouches like a nice old baseball glove.



    All-in-all excellent as usual! Makes me really want to try some leatherwork. You set a great example of do-it-yourself.

    It's not fair!! he can take his helmet off and still look like Jango Fett. The rest of us have to keep sweating in our buckets or esle nobody knows who we are.

    Also, if your going for that much detail, maybe its about time to call the plastic surgon
