Could someone like myself make a set with minimal expirence and without breaking the bank?
Hi Kyle, Thanks for the interest. Yes you can make your grips. It's all about the patience and want to. As far as tools. Here is a list of the things that come to mind. Email me if you want to go further, or call me either one.
Some kind of a drill press. Not a must but very nice to have.
2 drill bits
wood of choice
way to saw the wood
lots of sand paper, a belt sander would be nice.
If you don't have a belt sander then a wood rasp would be the next best thing.
These are a few of the fundamentals. We can discuss in detail after you tell me what you have in the way of tools. If you have had wood experience, then you probably have most everything you need to get started.
Some time at your connivance, why don't you call me so we can chat, I will be glad to share knowledge with you and help in any way I can.
Thanks for the interest.
