    I'd say that those spiders are creepy enough to make me do a double-take before I'd wrap my hand around 'em! My mild case of arachnophobia not withstanding, it looks like great quality work to me, Sarge.

    Hey Sarge,

    Just wanted to say, I just spent a good 2 hours looking through this thread. Some great work.

    Working with some of those woods is a real PITA, but the outcome looks great.

    Hope your using appropriate air filtration while working with some of those woods, Ive gotten pretty sick due to working with blood and king wood without dust mask and good ventilation!

    Todays wood is a great example of mineral stained maple. As certain things in the soil are pulled up through the root with the water supply for the tree, various colors form as the wood reacts with them, forming gorgeous patterns and colors known as "mineral staining". In this instance, the maple has a definite Cherry color to it, along with some great figure and a wonderful, jagged pattern.
    Yet more beautiful stuff out there in nature that we only need to look around to see.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks rson63, I'm glad you have enjoyed what you've seen here. :)
    Todays wood is an African hardwood called Wenge. It appears at first glance to be black, but it's actually a very dark brown. It also has a very open grain to it that is beautiful if left open in the finish, but requires many, many hand sanded coats to fill if you want it subdued. Jagged patterns is another standard in this wood. Beautiful stuff! Enjoy the pics!

    Okay, there is wood under the skin, trust me. :D Lizard skin officer grips. I took the skin from the belly to where it transfers to the side color/pattern. I think it's a very cool mix.
    Enjoy!

    Todays is a set done in figured Narra that is simply the most beautiful block of this wood that I've ever had the privilege of working with. I'm sorry that my photo skills can't possibly do it justice, but the color is gorgeous, the figure is deep and the graining spectacular. Woods like this make me so thankful that I do what I do for a living, as it just makes my day to see such natural beauty.
    I hope you can see some of what is there in the pics and enjoy it too!

    Yeah, it seems everyone likes the burls. :D
    Todays set is Amboyna Burl with Colt medallions inset. I inset medallions a little differently than most as after they're in there, I cover them with clear acrylic. This makes the grip surface smooth, but also has the added bonus of bringing the details of the medallion itself into sharp focus.
    Thanks!

    Todays set is a government set done in Wenge. I personally like Wenge with it's jagged patterns and dark color. It still has visual interest while allowing those who want to be, to remain "tactical". It is the most open grained wood I know of and it takes a lot of extra work to get that filled in if you don't like it, but it's worth it in the end.
    Enjoy!

    Here's a set that I just finished last night from the larger Mastodon tusk piece that I posted earlier. It's beautiful! The bark of the piece has layers to it with different colors as you can see in the pics. Due to the contours of the pieces themselves, the bark leaves a neat pattern when shaped for grips. I think this stuff is flat out cool, but would like to hear opinions from the folks here. Mastodons were around from 3 million to 10 thousand years ago. It's awesome to hold something that old in your hands and think that it once roamed the Earth. Kinda humbling, but definitely awesome.
    Enjoy!

    How about some beautiful mineral stained spalted Maple grips? This stuff is amazing. The colors, the spalt the movement - it's all VERY cool!
    Hope you all had a great and joyous Christmas!
