    Beautiful maple, one of my favorites! I have 5 or 6 BF in the shop right now that have "humidor" written all over them.

    I think I've pu these out before, but these are my personal carry grips. Snakewood and Wenge. I'm in the process of making a set of snakewood over Zebrawood for a customer right now.

    Well, I guess I blew the "surprise" element then didn't I?
    I can't keep screen names, email names and real names clear in my head. Sorry. They're going to be sharp when completed though.

    Beautiful set of Amboyna Burl in bobs. Dark rich color, full burl coverage, even cool "veins" of graining cutting through and around - these are what Amboyna Burl is all about. This is the classic look. Amboyna has many looks in different blocks that can go from classici and rich to loud and vibrant. Very fun, cool, and beautiful wood.

    Time for more mammoth tooth grips. These had a great pattern to them and the colors were very cool. I put them in Gabon Ebony. They are now residing on a customers stainless Officer model. Beautiful stuff!

    A very nice set of mineral stained maple that has great curly figure as an added bonus. I have the greatest hobby in the world.

    Briar burl is another great wood. VERY tight grained with alot of movement and burl swirl going on, but in a subdued manner. The color of all the movement is only slightly darker than the base wood and while very busy, it doesn't just jump out at you. I hope you can see what I'm talking about in the pics. A lightweight, but very tough wood. Yes, it's the same stuff used in pipes. In fact, that's how I got into it - a customer asked for a set of grips to match his pipe.
    Enjoy,
    Sarge

    Todays set is Pollyana Burl. I haven't worked very much with this particular wood, but I will more in the future as I can find it! Solid and dense with great movement in the wood texture around the clusters of burl eyes. A great color to boot! More beautiful stuff!

    Pollyana Burl.
    That's a new one on me but, it sure made for a set of beautiful gun handles.

    Sarge. You might think this is interesting. I once had a nice section of Elephant Ivory Burl Ivory.

    "Huh?"...you say. Very rare and uncommon.

    That tusk had a serious internal abscess of the nerve core which resulted in the normal/typical "grain/growth" patterning to go all ballistic and get all swirled in multi-colored abstract patterning caused by the serious infection.

    BTW: It must have been excruciatingly painful for the elephant and that is likely the reason why it eventually had to be put down as rogue.
