Default Custom P938 Grips

Here are a few shots of the grips I just made for my P938. I used a matte clear coat finish instead of something glossy as I prefer less flashy. I also increased their thickness by nearly twice the factory plastic. (from .11 to .19-.20) What do you folks think?

It's Bocote. I have a couple others on hand I'm going to use to make some. Cocobolo, Honduran Rosewood, walnnut and I can't recall what the other one is called.

Very nice. I really like that wood.

I like! Mine has the Rosewood grips, 1st gun I have owned that has wood grips. Could I suggest making some from Bloodwood, or Paduk?

I almost bought some bloodwood last time I was over at Woodcraft. I did see the Paduk as well. There are so many awesome looking choices it's hard to pick just a couple. I've got some walnut, cocobolo and Honduran Rosewood that I'm going to do next, then I'll get some more exotic stuff.

Huh. Woodcraft. Isn't that one of those chain store tool places? If so, have you ever tried searching out a hardwood lumberyard? We have one that sells NOTHING but lumber for woodworkers. AWESOME place. To the best of my knowledge, they do not send stuff mail order. You have to go and pick thru to find what you want. But I bet it's cheaper.

Here it is anyway: Highland Hardwoods, Brentwood, NH

I thought about doing that, but many of the ones around here don't like to bother selling 1 or 2 pieces and they don't really deal with woodworkers, all more commercial. Woodcraft is just a woodworking supply store chain. They have all the machinery for the hobby as well as many different types of exotic blanks to make whatever you wish. For instance, I think the Honduran Rosewood was $9.99 for a 3x3x12 block. (about enough to make 15 individual sides)

Oh, well, that's not too bad. The place I referred to around here caters to everybody, whether it's one short at 25% off, or a whole tractor trailer load....

I cut the basic patterns and sanded down the thickness I want last night on a set of cocobolo and walnut. I seem to do better work in the evening into the wee hours of the morning. Kinda irritating really, cause then I don't get to bed till 2 and don't want to drag my ass up in the mornings.
