Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
Just saw the forums notification regarding this post and here I am. I know there are pics of the customer’s grips on the weapon, but I’m commenting on the first images I see which are your pics of the grips. First, the Buckeye Burl is a beautiful wood. Second, I know there is no such thing as Buckeye Burl Mother Of Pearl but that is how they look to me, very, very nice. Lot of work to make these babies, I can tell by just these pics, and there appear to be more curves and the thickness seems to vary.
What size drill bit was required for the grip holes?
Whoa! They are so beautiful on the weapon, no wonder the customer was so pleased. The graceful curves and perfect distance from grip edge to metal edge all around appears perfect! The mother of pearl effect at least for me, is still very radiant and dimensional on the weapon which is a beauty within herself. Just exceptional craftsmanship. Thanks for showing the work Carl.
