The "tie dyed" are Arizona picture wood (petrified pine). I make them all. Hard to pick a favorite, but in wood, it's hard to beat hackberry or double dyed box elder. Ty Rex in stone or the mammoth teeth, but I need to get more Australian tiger eye in ironstone and more chrysanthemum stone.

Cougfan, that looks like some of my cocobola with heart wood mixed with sap wood, but the color is a bit different.

Thanks to you, I now have an almost irrational desire for T-Rex bone grips.

i get a few compliments from time to time for my cheapo resin-cast stocks. They were just a std black texture w/imprint (shown), but then I decided I liked bothe the coyote color of some modern pistols AND the stag grips of a friends snubby - a bit of time with the dremmel and a can of tan spray paint, and viola.Sorry, 2nd pic is very weak)

Farthest left is a matched pair of Sambar stag which were so naturally perfectly formed, it took virtually no sanding for a perfect fit. Sambar is not endangered but they drop their antlers in deep grass and in order to more easily find them, the Indians burned the grass. Cut down on cobra attacks, too. Well, the Indian government did not appreciate all the burning so they made it illegal to export the stag horns. Price rose dramatically, availability fell dramatically. Too bad for us. Luckily, I have supplies from old accumulations. Don't know how long they'll last, though.

I thought dinosaur "bones" were really rock and minerals that had replaced the bone over millions of years to form fossils. But that would be pretty awesome, though.

Ok, I'll play. Ivorywood grips courtesy of Esmerelda. Sorry for the horrible quality but I haven't had time to take a proper picture of the grips yet.

The T Rex are betwixt the Sambar stag and the jade. Orange red centers surrounded by black. I'll put up a better photo when these are finished this weekend.

Yes, the orange & black to the left of the jade.

Interesting thing about fossilized dino bone. A paleontologist put some into something to remove the silicon. To her amazement, what was left was rubbery and seemed like tendons or something similar. Then they ran a DNA test, and they actually got some fragments of DNA. That blew a lot of minds. Using this technique, they determined that the closest living relative of TRex is chicken. Can you imagine someday bringing Trex back? Might put a lot of chicken ranchers out of business.

I love those nobama grips.
