  1. Wood Shotgun Grip

    I had this ideia as soon as I bought the shotgun. I began by tracing the old handle on a piece of wood, I used a log from olive oil that was waiting for the winter in my fireplace. I started flatening the log and then traced the old piece, i had to use a jigsaw to make the cuts which wasnt easy...
  2. Figured Cherry Gun Display Case

    Had some nice figured cherry I've been sitting on for awhile just waiting for the perfect project. My wife has had this beautiful engraved 1851 Navy hidden away in a case. Better to put it on display, I think. I made this for her for Christmas. The "glass" is lexan. I have real glass and cut it...
  3. Custom Pistol Grips

    A coworker of mine was looking through my cutting boards (LVDTs) a few weeks ago and asked if I was interested in making a set of custom grips for his 1911 pistol. I was a bit nervous in taking on the challenge, because I wasn't sure how involved the process was. I created a few test grips and...
  4. Abrosia Maple Bookmatched 1911 Grips

    Nothing Fancy. Just killing time while the glue set on a couple of projects.
  5. Osage Orange one piece pistol grip (Ruger GP-100)

    Recently used some of the Osage Orange wood I've been playing with and made a new grip for my Ruger GP-100 357. It's a one piece grip when finished that slides over the handle frame of the revolver. All the inside milling was done on the drill press with router bits. The outside shaping and...
  6. Pistol Grips

    Well I never thought I'd be working with a handgun! A friend of mine purchased this gun about a year ago now but was not happy with the factory composite grips. These are made from what I'm 90% sure is Brazilian Rosewood. I used the previous handles as templates and rough cut them on the...
  7. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...
  8. Custom Wooden Pistol Handle for Taurus Judge

    A coworker of mine heard about my woodworking addiction and asked if I would be interesting in creating a custom wooden handle for a pistol he had. When I started thinking about it I thought that maybe it was a Colt 1911 and I could simply make some custom grips that screwed into the metal...
  9. Pistol Grips

    I decided to make some custom grips for my Armscor 1911. I used the old grips as templates and started with a piece of 3/4 maple, I used the bandsaw to resaw it into 2 different pieces, than traced the old grips and cut them out with the bandsaw once again. After getting the rough shape I used...
  10. Pistol Range Box

    When I was at the gun range I noticed everyone had a range box or a bag to carry their guns, ammo… I looked online and found range boxes but they were all very simply, lacking storage area and $$$. I also found that there was nowhere to sit and relax when not shooting at the range. So I...
  11. Pistol Display Box

    Here's a display box I made for a friend. The outside is cherry and the interior is black walnut. I used black inlace (glorified colored bondo) for the Colt logo. The finish for the outside is Formby's tung oil w/ shellac and laquer on the walnut. The pistol is a Colt model 1903/08 hammerless...
  12. Range Box with Scope Mount

    This is a prototype of a Range Box that I intend to build more of. It will hold 3 or 4 pistols with mags and ammo. the top, when open, has a mounting for a spotting scope. The unit locks with two locks keyed the same. It's ideal to transport firearms to and from the range. The box is...
  13. Black Powder Pistol Stand

    This is version two of a black powder pistol stand I created for my 1858 New Army replica. My Girlfriend bought an 1851 Navy replica and it was about 1/8" shorter where it counted. Between the grip and the hammer. Black Powder Pistols are loaded by hand. With two hands you've got to half-cock...
  14. Custom Walnut grip for 45 colt SA

    This is an Uberti-made single action in 45 (long) colt. It's imported by Taylors & Company. They are very nice pistols for the price, although as you can see from the last photo, the original checkered grip that it comes with has the Taylors logo carved into it. It's a nice grip, but I thought...
  15. Pistol cleaning box

    This is a box I made for a policeman friend. He is required to carry a handgun at all times so I constructed this to replace an old beat up tackle box he currently uses. It is made from spalted maple, oak, pecan and some black walnut accents. I hope he likes it.
  16. Custom Gun Case (g17 edition)

    I've wanted to make custom gun cases for a while but it took me a while to decide on the specifics. Instead of getting custom-sized foam for the cases, I used aftermarket foam refills for Pelican cases (by Cobra Foam Inserts) and then built the case around them. Since they come in so many sizes...
  17. Gun Box -- Winter Contest Entry

    Well, I decided to get in on the winter contest action. I know my box making skills aren't up there with a lot of the LJs, so I decided to try something that I hadn't seen posted here yet. I enjoy shooting and I own a variety of different pistols. My "prized" pistol is a Kimber custom gold...
  18. Fir Cabinet

    A friend's mom built her log cabin years ago out of fir. She had the leftover logs milled into boards for trim and flooring. She had a small pile of these rough sawn boards laying in her barn for many years and just recently asked me to make a cabinet out of the remaining stock. Everything is...
  19. Get a Grip!

    Walnut grips and pump handle for a Crosman 1377. This piece of wood was salvaged from a wood pile! It's a nice chocolate brown with small pores and very hard for walnut. I wish that I could get my hands on some more firewood like this. These are for a fellow airgunning friend for his pistol...
  20. Zebrawood grips for my 1911

    Just a quick project to fill some time on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
