Hey man, those look awesome. Glad to see some people getting some use out of this thread.Here's a set that I made. I wanted something black for my CDP as I wasn't really a fan of the look with the original rosewood grips. Another thanks to the OP for sharing the process with us. I obviously liked your double sun groove design. For anyone wanting to try this, I didn't find the fiberglass/canvas part as difficult as I thought it may be, although you have to work quickly. Give it a shot! Now all I need is a new MSH with mag well. And some black grip screws. And some new grips to go with the mag well. And a holster... Does it ever end?
(I have no idea why I get these white borders. Hopefully I'm better at making grips than posting pictures.)
stone bender...that is one awesome piece of wood! I hope you post a pic of those on your 1911 when youre done!Thanks for the informative thread. You've inspired me to dig these out and get them done:
Probably the best way to check is to clamp down whatever fabric you are going to use. Once its clamped then make sure it is .250" plus. I would err a little on the larger side. Hope that helps.being we are all using different thicknesses of fabrics.....about how thick should our stack of dry strips be? I wouls sure hate to mix my resin and discover I am short on fabric haha.
