    What do you think?


    Kingwood
    Kingwood gets it's name from the 17th century when the Kings of France and Europe demanded that their furniture be made with this wood.


    Camphor Burl
    This burl comes form SE Asia and is vary rare in woodworking circles. This has a scent that is awesome.


    Bolivian Rosewood
    One of many species of Rosewood. This piece has excellent figure.


    Wenge
    Wenge comes from the Congo area of Africa. Rich chocolate color and light tan lines. Very nice grip material.

    Great work! Got to love that rosewood, it just looks great on any gun.

    Where are you getting your wood from?

    Thanks AD. The Bolivian Rosewood I get locally. They just got in some Yucatan Rosewood, so I might try some of that and see how they will look. I haven't used any of my Amboyna Burl yet...that's pretty expensive wood so I need to get to a certain comfort level...skill wise that is.

    Australian lacewood could be another good one to try.

    Thanks!

    I have some Zebrawood that I am working on, and a buddy of mine lent me a set of grips for the GP-100. I'm going to make some inserts for those.

    Yeah I do. I have a URL but no website at the present time.

    Right now I'm having fun doing some cool things with wood.

    This isn't anything on a large scale by any stretch of the imagination. I have some guys from other forums that are interested in buying some stuff...so we'll see where it goes from there.

    Not to change the subject, but what kind of 1911 is the full-size? Is it Springfield? If so, which model? I really like the looks of that!

    The 1911 is the 'full size' The grips rae the same as the 'Commander' size. The blued Spingfield is a full size and the silver Kimber is a Commander size...same grips.
