Nice, 67. Nice grain(s). Way better than the plastic.

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

Great job.

I had some black powder rifles and shotguns that I built from kits that had maple wood stocks. I figured them with a propane torch. Your work made me think of them. Looked something like this.

Those are good looking grips,

Time consuming and intricate detail work.

Good job.

Anything I try to make out of wood becomes kindling. I bet I could outdo Buster on kindling!!!!

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.
