Sorry General, but better late than never. Here's the ones he made for me. They are Paduck, with Tung Oil. I like 'em. Factory grips have not returned yet.

BTW, in the 1st photo, that is NOT a crack, just grain.

Beautiful. Like a streamlined butterfly. Lol. I was fortunate in having the nightmare myself so I knew what it would look like fro the point of esthetics prior to sending them. Ill post some urethaned Purple Heart, urethaned walnut and I have another set at 90% done I forget the wood.

Here we have the following:

Jatoba with Laquer finish

Purple Heart with polyurethane finish

Walnut with polyurethane finish

Honduran Rosewood with polyurethane finish and a trial into screw hole inserts. Wanted to see if adding a metal insert would cause any issues or if it would create a stronger anchor to the frame.

Bloodwood forms that are in the early stages of production. They look a lot like Paduk wood. Just thought I'd throw an early stage shot in for good measure.

I don't know why this system insists on putting images whichever way it wants, the upside down ones were the same way as the first one when I posted them. But you get the point.

made mine from poplar by hand for $1.86 in about an hour. I choose the poplar because of the purple strip that runs through it. Looks great in person.

A few more recently made sets

I just made the ebony last night, and they now reside on mine. The ebony requires no finish, just sand them smooth and they are nice.

I'm guessing the Ebony is the 2nd set down? VERY nice. I also like the 3rd set down. What's that? Did you find a use for the chestnut I sent yet?

Yea ebony is the second set. I have started a set of the chestnut. Here's a couple shots. They have no finish done. I love the ebony ones, they require no applied finish, just a fine sanding. I've sold quite a few sets on eBay, and have several orders I'm working to fill. I really owe you one man!
