Looks good to me Dennis!

Paris, TN huh? Does ole Hank Williams Jr. still have a boat down there? We used to boat on Kentucky Lake and would hear about his wild parties down there on the docks. But that was about 10 years ago, so he may not still be around.

I went to college in Murray, KY and that was a dry county so we made many a run down to what we called the "Deep South" (meaning Paris) to buy our liquor. We had some good times down there.

Default Honduran grips

Those honduran grips are beautiful! I also like the mammoth tooth. I have a bhp with satin frame. Either one would look nice. Do you build for the bhp?
Thanks

Sorry Cadoll, only making the grips for 1911s right now. Probably no plans to branch out in the future either. These are keeping me as busy as I want to be right now anyway.

Here are some slim, bobtail amboyna burl.

Yeah, I looked into that. I'm not quite big enough to afford it. Got some other things with the forum in the works though.
