Stippling in progress. This is showing the tools of the stippling process, that being the hammer and nail and checkering tool for the straight lines. Sorry the hammer didn't show up.

Hi Carl
I would like to thank you for the grips you made for my dad.
It is his b-day next week but I could not hold back any longer so I sent them to him.
He LOVED them......
I had a laps of intelligence and did not take pics. of them before I sent them so I will take some on the gun when I go down to him in a few months.
He put them on as soon as he got them and said he loves the new feel and he can not wait to show them off to his hunting club.
THANKS again for the beautiful job on them.
You are a true craftsman.
And a good friend.
Mike

A set for a policeman that I forgot to post. The reason for what appears to be a gap at the top and bottom of the badges is because of a taper on the badges. In other words the hole had to be larger at that point than the surface of the badge so it would drop in. There was nothing I could do about it. The picture makes it stick out like a sore thumb.
I really don't think you need to defend your work . What you accomplished is a very difficult job of inletting badges on a Tapered surface IMO (y)
