Default Show some beautiful wood, if you will

I know we have been through this, but I love wood and its properties. Someone started a thread that made me dig for pictures, and I haven't posted this one in awhile. Hate to just forget it when it is so nice of wood, so let's share it with you guys.

Used to be I couldn't afford many guns, but I would find decent wood grips at gun shows and buy them if they were $20 or less:





I wound up collecting quite a few pairs. Here is a sampling of them:



It's getting to the point where I can't afford the guns again...

The combats are just crazy.
The only way I can afford to keep a set around is give them to my son.
These are his.
