Has anyone got any ideas on a design for these grips or should I leave them plain? Mayby some medallions, but what kind? Give me some ideas. Enjoy the scenery. Look deep into the wood.
Carl, these grips are absolutely, beautiful. You're also correct about looking into the wood. I can see various images (no, not a drinker) just have a spiritual sense about natural things and how to appreciate and respect and most of all, Listen to them. I'm working on a pair of 1911 grips using Red Oak hand cut with a hand saw, wow, that is a lot of work, but the grain is so beautiful. I'll be back, your work is beautiful and thanks for being so gracious.
