Re: Show your DIY Ideas and Projects

This is my first attempt at making my own custom grips. Hint, I cheated. :biggrinjester:

Re: Show your DIY Ideas and Projects

Here's one of a pair of end table I finished a few weeks ago. Made from quilted maple and walnut. It's my opinion that maple and walnut go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Here's a piece of acrylic I cut this evening. This is the second try and it turned out good enough that I'll probably build a mount for it. 1/2" acrylic cut on a home-built CNC with a 60° V-bit. I cut it .010" deep and it looks like it should have been about 1/2 that deep. Oh well, live and learn.

You know there will be a lot of interest in these. I like it.
Thanks, I hope you're right! I've already had lots of interest but at this point there's no way to make any money off of them without charging far more then any sane person would pay.

I'm working with a home built CNC that is far from production ready along with a massive shortage of the necessary skills that it requires. Maybe someday...

Except that it's showing the left side features on the right side of the gun it turned out ok. I'll remember next time...
No, you're mistaken. That's a Randall left-hand 1911. :thumbs2:

I had no idea such a thing existed until I Googled it. I knew there were models made with an ambidextrous safety but I had never seen one with the slide lock on the wrong side (sorry lefties but it is the wrong side.) :lol::
