    Two things-First, when I popped over to the "new post" and saw the pic at the top of this page, I thought either you were about to make grips out of a rib roast, or somebody traded you a rib roast for grips. Mammoth, now I get it. Second, what is that beautiful wood in post #89, the one from the high-end shotgun stock wood?

    Sheepdog,
    Yeah, I understand. The tooth was sealed and it made it look almost "juicy".
    The wood in #89 is walnut. Beautiful isn't it? I'm not usually a big fan of walnut, but when it looks like that I am!

    Here's a set of the walnut in government size. Pics didn't come out quite as well, but these are a match to post #89.

    A nice set of spalted Maple government grips. I always have this type stuff professionally stabilized. The more beautiful the spalting, the softer the wood, but the stabilization makes it more than tough enough to use in grips.
    Enjoy,

    I think they call that "Ink Line" spalting.
    Very beautiful Grips.

    GP-100?

    Beautiful work with the 1911 grips.

    Do you have the capability to do the inserts for the GP100 ?

    airslot,

    To be honest, I don't know. I've never even held a GP100, though I am familiar with the inserts that you're referring to from pictures. (I'm not much of a revolver guy). Maybe if you send me a couple pics of the front AND back of the grips themselves I can answer that better for you.
    Thanks for the interesting idea!

    I'll see if I can get some clean shots in the next few days. Thanks

    Todays beauty is provided courtesy of Black and White Ebony. I've found through trial and error that this wood must be stabilized before being used in it's crosscut (shown) form. The wood "moves" readily in response to different humidity levels even though sealed by the finish. Having it professionally stabilized removes this characteristic and makes it great for grips. A hard and heavy wood with some beautiful stark lines running through the more dark cream colored base wood. People often see faces, animals and other things in the lines. What do YOU see?
    Enjoy,

    I see the grips I'm going to order if I get the gun I have been looking at. Very nice work.

    When you say stabilized, Sarge, what exactly do they do to the wood? I assume that they pressure treat it with some sort of resin to harden it?

    You're right on Bumper. They force acrylic resin into the wood under high pressure and heat. When it's done, the wood is solid and not susceptible to water abosrption etc. It costs a little bit, but well worth it on certain woods. The spalted Maple couldn't really be used for anything other than looking at without it, but with it, it's solid and worry free.
