If Micro-Elephants escape from our Children’s Zoo, proliferate, and threaten Lincoln’s gardens, I am ready. The threat of this little three inch, 25 caliber, pistol ought to back a hungry herd out of our flowers.
Truth is I was somehow attracted to this tiny Pop Tart at a gun show. At home, I promptly dropped it and shatter the extravagant plastic grips. (@$& – #*^% – ~&)
The plastic grips were traced onto Colorado Claro Walnut slices. The blanks were cut out with a scroll saw. Then, double-back taped to a scrap wood carrier with a handle attached. To produce the needed curvature, I rocked each blank against the occilating belt sander attachment for a Ridgid spindle sander. Hand sanded, poly finish.
I have to admire the genius behind branding Ridgid Tools for a largely male market.
