Excellent QK - thx for all the pics - which are actually just fine.
As an engineer and machinist I can say that you have things well covered here - pretty much what I reckon I'd do to achieve those results. Once the radius of the grip panels is established then the jig design sorta speaks for itself - tho that said, making the jig is quite a chunk of work too.
Many years back I think I derived as much pleasure as anything from making jigs, fixtures, special tools etc - as actual work on the lathe. This was metal of course but, my wood lathe has seen some occasional use too as a hobby.
Nice work Sir

Hey I say you can only learn one way - by doing.
It looks like you got a great start, I like what I see!
Maybe we can have you make some custom "Combat Carry Member" 1911 grips? They'd be all the rage!
