Re: Building and customizing your 1911 grips
There would be great difficulty in selecting a favorite set of from this collection so, I won't try. I do like those lacewood grips, they have a strong Tribal look about them. As for you offering yor helo to anyone interested, I for one can prove its worth the effot to learn form your years of experience. I worked with you to the point that expenditure of funds was a practical move and I did that. I'm moving right along in a positive direction.
I posted some pics showing how you taught me to drill perfect counter holes using your modified step drill bit, should have posted it here, may later. I haven't started the inlay yet. Seems I get a pair done, then don't want to cut on them anymore, ha, ha. I'll get over that. Next project will be the Canary Wood. I had to return the Colt I was using for fitting, but will have another one soon.
Your the best thing that cold happen to someone who wants to learn how to make natural wood grips. I'm happy to say, in some circles I'm proving it, thatnks to you.
