I just finished these cocobolo grips for my C9. Got one picture and the battery went south. On this side I broke the semi-circle during final trimming. The other side came out okay. I have enough wood left to try the left side again. I'll get some batteries and get some more pics. There is no finish on yet. I am thinking some linseed oil for just a little pop. I think they came out okay for a 1st attempt. Next I'll try the 45.

Two coats of boiled linseed oil: a few more to go. This wood is beautiful and makes my beginner wood work look good.
This was more of a project than I thought. I have 14+ hours in these: Probably could cut that in half now that I have done the prototype. I think the next ones will be when it's cold and snowing.
