Those look really good with the grain showing so well. Dang last time I tried making something out of wood it became kindling.

Those are good looking grips,

Time consuming and intricate detail work.

Good job.

Thanks guys appreciate the compliments. One thing about making them like in other things you do, a mistake or slip of the hand and all your work becomes nothing but experience. And if it's a nice piece of wood that really hurts.

I really like those.

I have a chunk of Cherry that wants to become a set of grips.

Where did you get the hardware, threaded inserts, etc.

Thanks Frontiersman, Cherry is a pretty hard wood, take you a little time on them. You can get the ferrules and screws from Brownells, the Ruger medallions can be found on eBay, good luck and don't rush things.
