Shame about the crack in the grip:(
Seems to make awesome looking grips! I still remember a pair of 1911 Scott W's spalted grips that put the ones he did in my Bigleaf Quilted Maple to shame:)
Haven't worked with it much...Still trying to figure where in the house this piece Pappy Baynes gave me is going to go, to show it off full length.
Nice work Doug :)

Wow, nice plank to drool for.

No crack in the grip, would have tossed it if there was. Just pointing out that spalted wood can have a tendency to split.
I found a guy on craigslist who has loads of it fairly cheap, think I shall make a return visit and stock up.

Finally got it complete, cut out a recess in a 22x13" 1" thick walnut block and glued it in.

Hairline cracks on 3 sides of the inlay, I tried some walnut wood putty on the bottom, color was more red than brown. Was worried it would stain the wood, after it dried somewhat I sanded if off and it did in fact leave a stain, so I decided better to have the small cracks than reddish stained wood.

Ended up just clear coating the whole thing with a rattle can.

Can someone help me out? My brother in law really liked SOA so I want to try making him one. Maybe I'm just searching the wrong terms on ebay but cant find this model :( I tried SOA reaper, Mr Mayhem, Reaper and nothing, lol.

Email badbird@comcast.net, ebay guy is often taken down for copyright violations which are still enforced by Fox for SOA items.

Here is a custom order I did for a chick, she requested extra blank wood margins because this is going to be signed by the cast later this month.

10x18", turned out pretty nice.
Had problems with the lettering, when I had the model stretched to cover most of the blank, vcarve preview looked good. When I shrunk the entire thing as per her request, vcarve toolpath ran but it didn't show anything on the preview.
Not much of a vcarve expert, I figured I had got to the point where small size was restricting depth to near nothing.
So I ended up just doing pockets with an engrave bit. Was too conservative on the depth .

Letters were very weak, not much more than impressions. Thought maybe I could color them in with a dark brown but thought that would look tacky.
Lost center position, so my options were do another one or make the letters deeper by hand.
Used a dremel with a very small engrave type bit, turned out pretty nice.

I'll post back if I get a pic of it signed.

Shweet. That is quite the collectable. Too Bad you couldn't have gotten her to get 2 of them signed one for you as you have made a butt load of these things. Thanks for sharing. :lol: :lol:

Not sure if I'd even want one signed, might want the signatures on the back if I did. To me thats almost desecration but I guess to a huge SOA fan, thats like a holy grail and could also be valuable. Then again, I am guessing these guys sign lots and lots of autographs and they'll never be exactly scarce. But autographs combined with a unique piece like this, who knows.

I pressed the place in line button which seems to put them in the body of the message, whereas before there was an upload button I believe
