Very nice looking grips Gary. Now, if only lasers could also wood burn in red, white, and blue colors. :D

I wish I could spread something on the wood before burning that would allow a color transfer. That would be a really cool effect. Maybe one of you could develop a product to do that.

Those are beautiful grips, Gary. I love the flag version. My 1911 is jealous!
