Default Grips for 1911

Anyone have any experience making a set of grip panels using Camphor burl? I like the looks of it but i dont know very much about this type of wood. Thanks in advance for any responses.

We've got a very experienced 1911 grip-maker around these parts. Unfortunately, I can't recall his exact username, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly. In the meantime, here's his site: The Finer Grain and Sarge's Grips

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

These are some of the nicest out there, in my opinion. Don't know about the wood you're looking for, but here's the link:
