    I did, pulled them from an old set of revolver grips and 0000 steel wooded them to eliminate the dark background color, the set I had was worn so thought no harm in giving it a shot, thanks

    Sometimes Ironwood can be either too yellow or too orange in color for me but I like the way your grips turned out - very nice.

    That looks great, almost looks like flames dancing in the grips.

    Great description. I was thinking the same about the "flames".

    I agree about Desert Ironwood being too orange, this has happened to me previously while attempting to order a custom set of grips. The blanks looked great (to my eyes) and then the shaping, and finishing took place, afterwards they looked like a bright orange set of burl wood grips. I felt terrible about turning them down, but hey, that's a lot of money to pay for something you don't REALLY like.

    Anyway, sorry for the tangent OP yours turned out great!
