How to make fine leather holsters

Ever seen how a holster is made?
Some of you have. I stumbled across this Youtube video of an Andrews holster being made. Now I have a better appreciation of fine craftsmanship and understand that you need to be patient when ordering something like this, which is well worth it. The video takes a few minutes but is well worth it so go get you a cold beer and and click "PLAY".
Enjoy.

That was an excellent video. A lot goes into making a holster. He make is look so easy but that's just years of experience.

Very cool to see how a holster is made. Laying out serious cash for a hand-made holster is less painful when you know what kind of labor is involved.

Thanks for all the "LIKES" posted. Thought you guys would like to see that. I'm always impressed when someone takes pride in their work and takes the time to get it right and is knowledgeable about what they do. But then that was due to my years in the quality assurance line of work.

My sentiments also. I now have more appreciation for the holtser maker and the craftsmanship that goes into it.
