    Here is a nice little belt pouch I whipped up yesterday as a distraction from one of my larger projects, just to keep things interesting so I don't lose interest. Still need to do some work on it and then waterproof it, but I needed something pronto. Thanks for looking. 20170319_211454.jpg 20170319_211441.jpg 14900544639071267705481.jpg

    Thanks much. It was a good time. My first time using the copper rivets. Those take a lot more energy to properly crush than I imagined. I'm ngonna have to figure out how to do that better and quieter. Apartment life sucks

    Haha thanks. My parents gave my their artistic sides thankfully, but to be honest without forums like this for inspiration I would be a babe in the woods for sure and even still its taken me a bit to make things look nice. My first attempts were pretty miserable lol

    The experience from those "miserable" attempts is paying off now though right? Nice work. I would rock that, I end up running my EDC light in the pass through hole on the top of the cargo pocket on my LA Police gear pants most of the time.

    The experience is definitely paying off, and its getting to be more and more enjoyable the longer is stick with it. I don't usually like having things on my belt as I wear tool bags all day at work, but the clip allows me to transfer the light between my belt and my tool bags easily, so I might end up carrying this way for the foreseeable future.
