Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
When Paul Bunyun would walk through a forest the trees would run and hide. When they see Carl/Woodnut heading their way they all stand tall and proud and lower their limbs and plead…, Please Carl do me, No, Do Me, No over here, do me.
What you do for wood is what a fine manicurist does for beautiful hands. As I say, you can take a tooth pick and make it look more beautiful than the Eiffel Tower . Did I mention the grips are beautiful, I get carried away at times, probably should be taken away.
I was reviewing some of your past post/images, from what I saw, I realize I have learned a lot from you Carl.
I just finished halving a block of Bloodwood by hand with a hack-saw blade, no frame, just the blade and my index finger looks like the rear site on my Colt, but it was worth it. Inside I found the Bloodwood to have the dark pinkish color with vertical grain lines and splashes of radiant gold, wood is so cool.
