I havent made anything in the shop for a while so I went out and whipped these pistol grips up. They are cut from a turning blank, I book matched them so they look the same on both sides. They are pretty simple, I first cut the outline on the band saw, then drilled the holes which turned out to be quite a tricky task. The angles were cut using only my table saw to cut a few different angles and they were done. I chose not the checker them bacause I loved the particular grains in this piece of wood so much I didnt wanna distract the eye from that. They are finished with gloss polyurethane.

You’ve got great taste in handguns. The grips are real nice as well.

Looks good. I never had a desire to own a hand gun until my buddy Jimmy The Grip started making these. A very cool project
