Hey guys, just thought I'd post up a shot of the 1911 grips I'm making from some nicely figured myrtle.
I'm gonna drill the mounting holes last, after I round out the bottom rear of both and notch the right side for the magazine release. Then I'll hit it with 1 last coat of finish.
I've worked with a lot of woods but this is the first time I've worked with myrtle, and so far I'm liking it more than the walnut I've made grips from in the past.
Edit- they don't really have flat spots even though it kinda looks that way. There are multiple lights reflecting off them
