    It will be going out to Jerry tomorrow. I assume less is more. It will be cleaned, treated for the mold and rot, and have the strap repaired; $50.

    Here's the repaired holster. I forgot to tell him to move the button to the new strap.

    I believe I would flatten the pebbles out a little to match better, especially near the top.

    How would I do that? Wooden hammer, roller of some sort?

    I would carefully use a small block and hammer and lightly tap until grain matches. Try rolling a dowel rod over it also. Key is to do it lightly until it matches. The goal is not to deceive but to match it.
