Pistol grips from Canarywood. This was sort of a trial project to get the process down before I make a set of grips from some red mallee burl I have, but I really like the Canarywood against the black finish. Since the Canarywood is slightly open grained, I filled the grain with shellac (4-6 coats, sand to bare wood, repeat until surface is uniformly dull after sanding away the shellac), then finished with four coats of Minwax wipe-on poly. The shaping was done with a random orbital sander, and the finished thickness is about 3/16”.
