I'm tinkering around making a set for my P938 tonight as we speak. I have some from my 1911 before I sold it, but I kept the ones I made and gave the factory ones to the buyer. How's about yall givin me an opinion on these wood selections: The first on is the first set I ever did. Went and cut some cedar parts from some freshly fallen trees to make them. Let them cure for about 6 months then tried to work some magic. Was gonna use them as a demso/presentation type set. Here those are:
The second set is another 1911 I made, out of burl walnut. I decided to go with a flat finish on them instead of super glossy, though I can change the final finish at any time. These fit well and I found them to look quite nice. Now, as you seen them in that picture they look glossy. However when dry, that have a Matte flat clear finish, Really make the walnut pop.
Finally I started on the beginning of a set for the 938 this evening. I've only cut and begun work on one side. I haven't done any thing the likes of sanding, oiling, staining or finishing to this one, just got to the point where the form is correct and tomorrow I'm gonna get it cut down to proper size and put a finish on it. Just wanted to see what you guys think
