    Blueing , i'm well known for traditional finishes rust browning and blueing , colour parkerising is what i do best.. i dont do wood , metal i can make sing , wood i make scream ..

    Pete at horsley park gun shop has a mate who does class work too but his touch with wood is brilliant , i send my stuff to him.. checkering repairs etc , the stocks i make are from jigs i have had made... do this cut with this head, that cut with that head , monkey see monkey do ... then sand oil and polish

    http://thegunsmiths.com.au/ i've had them assemble some high end units for me

    not the cheapest , not the dearest either but you get what you pay for 9743-7328 they are at sefton not far from auburn

    Jack, I hadn't been on the forum much lately due to some other issues so I just now noticed this thread. Boy those are some beautiful grips. The wood I am not familiar with by that name, but it sure looks like Hawaiian Koa. It has almost the same holographic look as the Koa.
    Really nice workmanship, thanks for posting.

    Not true wood but you wouldn't know if someone didn't tell you. These are Rogers Combat Grips on my dad's (RIP) Model 10-8 S&W

    Again, not wood but VERY unique and cool stagg horn grips!

    Jack - of all the photos posted in this thread I like the first photo you posted the best. The grain is so unusual - it really sets it apart!
