You need a set of these on that Kimber in your profile picture.

Box Elder Burl

I dunno?
Those are nice!
The Ironwood looks good on it too!

Nice, the grain pattern shows up much better in these pics.

The 1911 is a GSG .22lr. Grips are a maple Burl that I made. The other is a Ruger 22/45rp with black/white ebony grips that I finished with Tru-oil which gives them the reddish orange glow.
