Post: RE: Daily Bench Shot

Working on this design this week for this 1911 grip.  My 1/64"R Tapered Ball Nose comes in on Thursday and I'll try to carve it then.   I'm trying to better define the laser design on the 3D model.

Trying something new with 1911 grips today.  I engraved the pattern 0.010" deep before layering the pattern to color it.  The effect on the texture of the grips is fantastic.
