Thank you Axxe! I really appreciate that. Still in a learning process here with fitting. Trying different designs and need to settle on one final pattern for each size. Took me e few sets to realize eyeballing it was good but not good enough. I'm having a lot of fun making them for sure. Now I need to finish all the holsters I'm making, too.

Dave, if you're still learning, ican't wait until you get good! those grips were really nice and wouldn't be ashamed to put them on one of my pistols.

Olympus, again you have shown some amazing grips. any of these would look nice on a pistol.

both of you guys are doing some really nice work making grips.

Thanks again, Axxe! Every set is still getting a bit better than the last. If I ever stop learning, I'm afraid I'd end up bored and my stuff would end up boring.

Speaking of which ... here's a boring little piece of birdseye maple burl.

Dave i would be more than willing to take some of those boring grips of your hands so they don't distract you from making better grips!
