I want to sign up for the soon to come (I Hope) instructional thread post on how to make my own wood grips.

I am sure you have a wealth of knowledge to share as to how to get started. What not to do, how to design, fit and finish those beautiful wood grips. What wood recommendations do you recommend?

I know many here preach the art of reloading ammunition, I would really be one to more appreciate the art of wood working.

Please share your knowledge with me/us.

Okay folks, here is the first installment in what I'm calling Stage 1. I foresee Stage 2 as the method of cutting the wood into panels, drilling the grip screw holes, etc.
Enjoy!

You can take pics of the wood I sent you showing your setup and add commentary after each step. I am always interested in how things are done.

In for the updates! I've been a "cobbler" (item 6 in this list) for many, many years, and have a saying that I "measure with a caliper, mark with a grease pencil, cut with an axe and caulk to fit".

Time to learn some precision work, thanks for being willing Panda!
