For a change in direction from the knives I had been working, I discovered a new arena for exploration with grips for the trusty 1911A1 and their clones numbering in the thousands!! The materials are purchased in the “white” and are made of walnut or maple. Tooled much like the other projects I’ve posted, I was able to add various coloring by way of permanent ink markers or stains. A coat of semi gloss lacquer seals everything.
I mounted the finished projects on my Caspian .45 for the photo op. I’m thinking I should be able to sell these for $22 each. I bought 2 dozen blanks to work with. Best regards to all. Gary
