    Default M1911 grips

    made some M1911 grips for my pistol.

    wood is Cocobolo.

    took about 2.5 hours in all to run both grips

    I'll try and get a project file for it and post it ,

    and as for the finish I used Tru-Oil gun stock finish on the grips.
    they have 3 coats of the tru-oil on them gives it a shine and protection only down side is that you have to wait around 12 hours between coats to make it come out right.

    really nice work!!!

    I would love to know a little about your tools and strategy. I want to do a custom set for my Dad's Dan Wesson Bob Tail Commander. I am willing to go over it with a fine tooth comb (and caliper!) and make a good cut file. But if you can share your thoughts and ideas, I would appreciate it! It will give me a good way forward to do some custom work for Dear Ol Dad!

    Thanks for any insight you can provide!

    Nicely done Adam! Good choice on the true oil too! I've made several myself this spring. They're a fun project, as there's so many different ways/things you can do for embellishment on them.

    This is your thread Adam, but for the sake of furthering the conversation and keeping it in the same thread, would you mind a couple pics tagged on? I've got some files that may be of interest to others as well.
