I'm glad you're enjoying the pics, that's what they're for! :)
Up to now I've done a stippling which is quite effective at making the grips "grippier". I will probably have more textures that I try out in the near future.
Here's a pic of a couple of older sets that have the stippling. The last pic is a set of ultra thins in Bubinga that went out a month ago or so.

Todays wood is Redwood Burl. Beautiful stuff with some great burl clusters that run through the meandering graining of the wood. Very light weight wood, it needs to be stablilized prior to use in pistol grips, but once that's done, it's great!
Enjoy!

As I wait anxiously for my pistol to arrive I have been "window chopping". Some of Sarge's:


Without a doubt, the best looking of all!

Of course it's not my gun.

We have a photoshop king in our midst. You did a good job on those! ;) I can barely figure out how to load my pictures here let alone combine them with stuff like that.

Today's material is camel bone. I usually mount camel bone to a wood "backer" for two reasons -
1) the camel bone is usually not wide enough on it's own to get a full grip width out of and needs the extra width the wood can provide
2) the resulting framed look is just uber cooll.
The backing wood can be a real nice detail and add to the overall package. A bloodwood frame over a black frame and under the cream color of the bone is very nice.
The set in this picture is camel bone over Afzelia Xylay and is cut for a magwell setup that the owner has. Just another cool thing to do with grips.
Enjoy,
Sarge


PS - Canebrake, if you think that buckeye set is nice, wati until next week when I post the pics of the two primo sets that I'm finishing now. ;)

Okay, here's two sets of Buckeye burl that I just finished and were available for all of an hour. Beautiful stuff here. There was a third set, but it got snagged before I was even able to get a pic of them.
Beauty like this is a great way to start your day.

Nothing wrong with some strong pride in your service! (Even if it is Navy :eek::D) 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!

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.
