Plexigalss Belt Pouch - Pics


I thought of trying to make functional pouches out of plexiglass. Here is my first try. It's not perfect but I'm going to keep 'til I get it perfect.

Re: My homemade pouch


Darknight15 I had an old leather jacket laying around that I cut up. My next one I'll buy new material. All the leather is glued right to the plexiglass.

Menore Thanks

I've never tried to do anything like this before. I wanted to actually build my own stuff and not just buy it.

Looks like you are on to something big. Be ready to make several once you perfect it. Nice job!

Re: My homemade pouch


For a cheaper, easier way to do this contact Paulv70. he has a tutorial for no-sew pouches that end up working fantastically. I made 12 using his method. All you need are some vinyl, comic book boards, tape, glue, and scissors.

p.s.- and a ruler.

Re: My homemade pouch


Thanks Batdoogie,
I'm going to redesign a few parts on this so it's easier to make.

Jawafive,

The reason I'm building them like this is I really wanted a pouch that can take a beating. I've hit this with a hammer and nothig broke. This way, whatever I put in these are safe. Also It only costs about $15-$20, but I also screwed up a few differt parts on this one.

I also plan on putting a waterproof gasket in it and foam cut to what ever is going to be inside so they wont rattle.

Re: My homemade pouch


looking good dude. the first is always the messy one as it is a learning curve for you to find out all the kinks and problems in construction.

with a little more work it will look tones better.

nice work dude :up
