Default Making a sheath

I don't know if anybody will be interested in this or not, but I made a youtube video of me making a sheath. There's no talking or explaining, just showing. It's 45 minutes long, but it's even shorter when you watch it at 1.5x speed.

Good video. What weight leather works best for you? I find that 7 oz. or so works well for me. 9 oz. makes a good sheath, just harder for me to work with.

Thanks.

Most of my sheaths are 6-7 oz leather, but I'll use thicker leather on the bigger knives.

Just watched the video and liked it! One tip I have is to mount the camera on something other the the table you are carving and stamping on LOL

Ha! I agree. I didn't notice the error of my ways until after the video was recorded.
