    Yes, it's unique stuff! Glad you like it.

    Today's set will have to wait as Photobucket seems to be down at the moment, and I've got to head out to a couple of jobsites. It'll get done, just later today.
    Thanks,
    Sarge

    Okay, I'm back and photobucket is up, so here's today's set.
    It's done in good ol' American Walnut burl. Rich color, great movement in the wood, it's truly an all American beauty!
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Today is another "twofer" deal.
    The first pic is some nice Snakewood that were for a small Dan Wesson. Snakewood as you know if you've read through this entire thread ( ) is the rarest wood in the world and is sometimes sold by the ounce. It comes to us from Surinam and that's it. Nowhere else. There are other woods that are called Snakewood, but they are not the real deal. There can be only one.
    Anyway, the other pics are of a set done in one of the most gorgeous Maple Burl blocks I've ever had the privilege of working with. It had everything - curly figure, rays, burl clusters, rich variant color. Wow!
    I hope you enjoy them!

    Sarge's shop has great woods, "finegrain" is really THE word to put it! I checked, did not find anything made using aluminum.

    Any shop produces aluminum grips?

    Todays set is done in Moradillo. A rich brown color with graining that can go from straight (as shown here) to wild.
    Enjoy!

    This wood is popular with "purists" who think it a sin to venture to far away from basic flat, figureless walnut. Moradillo can dress things up without getting too far away from the original concept. For some, this is really living on the edge. To each his own. That's why we tend to love the 1911's - you can make them fit how YOU want them to look.
    Glad you like it!

    Todays set is done in beeswing Narra. Narra is the same family that gives us Amboyna Burl if the gorgeous red color looks familiar. Honestly, I'm not sure why it's called Amboyna Burl instead of Narra Burl, but they didn't consult me when assigning names.
    The curly figure with the color is very cool in my book. All of the Narra woods have that great scent to them too. A real pleasure to work with!
    Enjoy the pics!

    Today's wood is another spalted Maple pic. I usually crosscut spalted Maple, just because I like the look a little better, but this block had wild spalting running through it every which way anyway, so I left it alone. Anyone out there considering using spalted woods, make sure you check into a good stabilization process or provider. The wood can get quite "punky" depending on the stage of decay present. Once properly stabilized, it's good to go and beautiful!
    Enjoy!

    Todays set is done in a different kind of Pheasantwood. If you've ever seen Pheasantwood (Hawaiian) you know the light green color and especially the sharp graining that it gave it the name. I cut this set "sideways" if you will, across a block where the sapwood meets the heartwood, and the result is this naturally two tone straight grained set of panels. One of the joys of working with wood are all the different looks that you can get from the same piece depending on how you cut it.
    Enjoy the pics!

    Seems there was another pair similar to these (but for a bobtail) a few weeks back I went to the site to buy, only to find them sold... this pair is every bit as good, though tonight I have a bit more self-restraint.

    I am sure that if I keep hanging out in the barber shop, I will get a haircut .... so I imagine I'll have some Sarge's grips one of these days.

    Hope you all enjoyed the big game last night. We had some people over and had a great time.
    Today's set is done in some figured Walnut. I don't know if the pictures will allow you to fully appreciate the beauty, but this wood had some wonderful crotch figure (found where two trees/branches etc come together on a tree), and I cut it so the figure was north/south on the grips. Very beautiful and "deep" wood. It's always a pleasure to work with this type of wood and see the beauty come more and more to the forefront as you bring it through the fabrication stages. This set is shown on a Springfield EMP.
    Enjoy, and happy Monday!
