I've actually made quite a few over the years, it's fun and gives me a sense of accomplishment.

Before I had wood working tools I came up with a way to cheat. I used what ever tools I could to carve out the fitting channels, then I'd use epoxy to get a nice tight frame fit. The epoxy doesn't show on the outside, so as long as the grip halves are sanded flat to mate to each other, and at those places where they need to visibly fit flat to the frame it always came out looking perfect.

There's a set of black walnut panels in process (for the last 4 years)  for a 1911 as we speak.

Some grips I made for a PA63. Didn't like the import required thumb rest. These were made from some scrap oak left from my block production.
