He hoped to one day be an illustrator in western books and magazines by authors like Zane Grey and Bret Harte. There, he used his artistic interest to create sketches of his activities in the South Pacific. While serving in New Guinea, he saw natives creating decorative designs in leather and became curious about exploring the art. He and a few friends used pocket knives to carve the leather and created rudimentary tools out of nails shaped into various forms. He moved to Laguna Canyon where he settled in a shack that he made from an abandoned chicken coop.

I always wanted to or felt I needed to use just a little bit heavier leather than Al Stohlman prescribed and this would make a pattern just a little too small and as for left handed, just turn the right handed pattern over and voila!

You nailed the tri-weave stamping it looks like. Posted April 21, Sign in Already have an account? I love the classic style holster with that futuristic Ruger. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I have some friends mame family out of state that like the holsters I make, I wondered if tracing was a way to make a holster without having the pistol or a bluegun.
With full size tracing patterns and illustrations. This is roughtly what Stohlman said. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Books by Al Stohlman.
