Olympus, again you have outdone yourself! those are simply beautiful! i am impressed again. you and Longballer71 are simply amazing at making grips.

BTW, would you tell me what types of wood those are made of? the two reddish colored one are very unique.

Thanks Axxe! I try to outdo myself every time. The woods are paela burl, amboyna burl, followed by two sets of dyed box elder, then a natural box elder.
