And this is my first attempt with cocobolo.
Pretty nasty toxic stuff thepuke but it looks perty.
Experimenting with some ergonomics. These feel really good so far.
Debating whether or not to put in finger grooves on the left panel.
I think I will to see if I can.
There is no finish on them, thery're just wet.
So what do you guys think?
Do they look okay so far?

Grain is nice, but they look a little thick to me.... one of the things I like the most about the 39 series pistols is the slim grip....

Keep going.... you're getting there.....

Thanks for the encouragement.
I'm teaching myself to do this and it is a tedious process of trial and error.
It's a frustrating process and the only way to learn is to just do it.
Or use a CNC like everyone else.
Eventually I will come up with some grips worthy of my Gpa's 39-2.

I'm not done with these cocobolo's.

Re: My second attempt to make 39-2 grips.

Those are looking good. kfjdrfirii
Like many other things in life, making grips is not difficult.
The problem is that screwing them up is really, really easy. ;)

Go slow... :cool:
