hello from connecticut!

howdy! i found this place from googling for jigs.

i am in the process of making some beretta vertec grips. i must say, they are a challenge. i plan on making 1911 grips after i have these done. i'm using bolivian blackwood i found at my local woodcraft store. very hard wood. i am using files, chisels and a trim router for the process. if any one's interested in checking out the progess i have done so far , i actually have a topic on it here..

titled "Got Wood?"

i've been practicing my wood skills for just over 25 years now. i look forward to learning more from you all here.

thanx in advance....rip

Welcome to the forum.
Very beautiful graining on the wood.
Are you going to checker the handle? There is buzz online about an article that describes. Let me know and I'll send reference.
