Yep, you were right.

This is a pair I had made several years ago for my PT1911.

I've done Bird's Eye Maple in the past and have some right now that's pretty "eye" intensive.

raveneap - Those are very cool! Did you do the engraving/scrimshaw yourself too? Very, very nice!

Took me a minute to find the bird's eye maple pics.
Here are two different sets that I've done. I really thought the maple with the bubinga strip down the middle and mounted on bubinga was cool.


Those were ultra thins

Today's pic is of some beatuful spalted Maple. Really cool stuff, although it needs to be stabilized before use in grips.
Enjoy!

Wow, there are some sweet grips on this thread for sure. Mine are somewhat plain in comparison, but show my past.

Nothing wrong with some strong pride in your service! (Even if it is Navy ) Sorry, but I can't resist at a friendly interservice jab once in a while.
Thank you for your service brother!


Todays pics are of the lateste mammoth tooth grips. These tooth slabs have a bluish green metallic color to them that I wish I could capture with the camera, but am not a good enough photographer to do so.
I put the tooth slabs in beeswing Narra for the color and I am glad that I did. I think the end product is just ubercool.
Anyway, enjoy the pics!
Sarge

Thanks sarge43, once my back heals I'll post some more.

Stab away! I can take it!!!

Oh, by the way, it really was my pleasure to serve. (even in the Navy)

Those are nice grips.

I figured you could MrKimber. I don't mind - in fact I kind of enjoy - jabs from other services. We're all Red, White and Blue brother!
Today's pic is a tactical stipple pattern on a set of oiled Gabon Ebony grips. They were nice and "grippy" after the stippling.
