Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
I worked with some KOA wood today. Not yours Steve.
This wood is awesome. When finished the grain changes colors when turned at an angle. The light grain turns dark and turn it back and see the change. I have never seen wood with this much depth. It is such a rich color. I haven't had time to take pictures yet. I will experiment with the camera tomorrow and try and show the difference in the appearance when turned at different angles. I don't know the terminology for it but it is like the key chains I have seen in the past where the picture changes at different angles.
Steve, I should start your other grips later this week or first of next, I know now that they will be beautiful. Thanks for getting me interested in the KOA.
You cannot tell it is like that until you finish the wood, and when you do, boy what a WOW factor.
