Making your own "Micarta" grip panels
Has any body made there own Micarta material for making grips on knives?
I have some linen material that I am going to try and see how hard it is, I am going to dye it black and green and alternate colors in each stack. I need to find out what kind of resin to use, I may try using fiberglass resin at first because I can get it fairly cheap. I am going to use two 1/2" aluminum plates with a couple sheets of wax paper on them, build up the resin coated linen in to stacks of 20-25 and put the plates in my hydraulic press and let it set over night and see how it works.
