      You da man!

      Thanks, rickster
      Every notable advance in the saving work of God among men will, if examined, be found to have two factors present: several converging lines of providential circumstances and a person.

          very nice. what type of burl did you use? I see that they offer light, dark and other variations. Do you have any spinner pics?

            Quick question. How does wood play into the equation? I have seen grips with wood accents and I always wondered how they felt or how hard it would be to shape?

              With wood accents, I try to keep them out from under the thumb or heel of the hand. You can make the grip a tad log to help with this. An all wood grip is not uncomfortable or slippery.

              Shape the wood bits first, glue up and then sand cork to fit.
