Finished, (well mostly) the new grips made of Bocote for the Star BM. They are thick. Half again as the originals. But I haven't decided if I am gonna thin them or add some finger grooves first. They are not laquered but merely buffed out with a dremel buffing wheel. Shaped and installed left side, right cut and ready to shape. As I said they are thick for the moment. Shaped and buffed right side. Thick did I say that already? I think the Bocote goes well with the Blued metal. Now will maybe reblue the Star.
