I just finished some more black/grey and gold box elder burl grips for an acquaintance of mine and thought y'all might like to see some pics. :D

Very nice. I went to your site-photo gallery and just plain lusted. How hard is holly? How do they hold up to use/abuse?

thank you! :D

I've only worked with American Holly once but it seemed pretty hard so I think it would hold up. I believe I remember seeing several forum members that had single action grips made out of Holly.

Very nice! Great site, too. Can you tell me how your Buckeye is burl stabilized?

thanks!

I don't do any stabilizing myself, most of my stabilized wood is done by K&G.

Is that solid wood? Or a laminate?

it's solid burl wood that's been stabilized and dyed.
