    Todays set is Snakewood which is often billed as the "Worlds rarest wood". True Snakewood is found only in Surinam and the harvest of it is EXTREMELY regulated. I have seen high figure snakewood (like that shown in the pics) sold by the ounce.
    The figure is beautiful and unusual. I believe you'll be able to guess how the wood got it's name. The wood is featured here on officer size grips.
    Enjoy!

    It wouldn't do for the rarest wood on Earth to be ugly would it? It is beautiful indeed.

    I usually crosscut Spalted Tamarind due to the fine line spalt and the extreme patterns that it gives when you cut it that way, but this set is not cross cut. I got it off the end of a block, and I had room to still crosscut the rest, but leave this particular section as is, so I did. It reminds me of Mesa formations out in the desert. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool just the way it was, so I left it alone. By the way, the rest of the block that IS crosscut is ubercool and at the stabilizers as I type this.
    Enjoy the pics,

    That's a very interesting grain/pattern there, Sarge. I wonder what it would look like on a stainless pistol?

    I may have to pull out one of the stainless DW's and find out.


    Today's set is done in a wood that a lot of people seem to like - Tulipwood. The base wood is a cream color with red streaking running through it as you can see. It's a very solid wood and is a pleasure to work with. Honestly, it's not a personal favorite for grips, but like I said, a lot of people like it, so here are pics.
    Enjoy!

    I like the Tulipwood for grips & it is a perfect & dense type wood for handgun grips.

    And these (below) are bizarrely beautiful.

    I totally agree! That area above the spalted part almost looks like bone or something similar.

    I still think they would look amazing on a stainless pistol (!).

    Sarge is right, those would look great on a SS pistol. Here's a crappy pic of camel bone on SS. (Someday I'll learn to use this fancy digital camera)



    I haven't checked this thread for awhile.... amazing looking grips as always Sarge!

    Nekron - The Spalted Tamarind reminds me of a section of ice-age mammoth or mastodon tusk just taken out of the permafrost. The top of the grips looks like the outer bark partially covering the cracked internal ivory.

    Yeah, I can see how they'd look like fossilized tusk material - good call!

    Rhino: Nice Kimber! And your grips look great too!


    The hardest part about getting a set of Sarge's grips? Deciding which kind of material to use!! LOL!

    I was contacted by a customer with an interesting request. He asked if I could inset some "medallions" that he had and wanted to put on his grips. I was thinking more of the normal medallions or maybe the lapel pins that work so well, and said "Sure!". Then he sent me the pics. These are not really your "normal" medallions. They are large and deep as well. They obviously took a little custom carving to get them inset properly, but I think they came out well. They are inset enough so that most except the actual skull is flush. The skull is slightly above the grips surface, but nothing that is uncomfortable at all to hold. The grips themselves are Black Paper Micarta. I think they look great on the stainless CBOB. It was a fun project to do!

    Thank you guys! I'm not a big fan of the whole skull motif, but it was definitely fun to do. As long as the end user likes them (and he does) it's all good.

    Today's pics are of a couple of sets done with the mineral stained maple burl that I had in the shop. I thought I had run out of this stuff a while ago, but found a couple of blanks on the back of a shelf behind a couple hundred other blanks. I have a lot of wood in the shop.
    Anyway, here are the pics. It's beautiful wood!
    Enjoy,
    Sarge
