very nice, I have a couple of items I made out of KOA when I was in high school many many moons ago. Beautiful wood.

Thanks. I'll post a pic on the pistol when I get them. He's putting more coats on today and tomorrow.

Koa wood is beautiful. Expensive as hell the last time I looked at getting some for furniture made from it though.

Very interested to see how this turns out.

All 3 of these pics are the same grip just different angles. This is after a couple of coats. I'll post em on my pistol when he's done.

Finished product. Just got these in the mail today from epdesign. The pics don't do the grips justice. Especially the ones by themselves. One set on my pistol the other going to my father for xmas. Thanks Epi!!

The wood has a deep translucence grain. Almost 3d when you see them in person.

Koa is pretty cool. Bubinga ain't bad either.

Nice choice.
