Have a great Day, Kevin
Outstanding Carl!! I could not be Got the grips you worked on and they look great! I gave one of your cards to a lady that works at the pistol range named Whitney, she has a Colt and may give you a call. Thanks again!
more pleased. You can use me as a reference anytime. Thanks again!!! cw
Carl I can't thank you enough. The grips turned out far more than what I expected. the Badlands texture looks awesome and is also functional. You've got my business forever and anyone else I know that wants custom grips for 1911's. I've attached pics of the final product, you can use them as you may. Good advertising. Again THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Never get tired of seeing your work Carl!
Those are really nice and I love the wood and love the inlay of ivory as well. I've done inlay
work before, but to do in on such a "small scale"... blows my mind to think of the precision
that goes into that!
Not long ago I asked Carl this same question, will you teach me to make grips? Carl said yes if, you're serious! I was serious & the some of the first things I learned weren't about grip making, but about the teacher, Carl Wallace. Honest, A man of character, integrity beyond question, willing & able to help anyone learn and most of all, he has become a life long friend.
He will tell you what equipment to get, how to use it and a some clever ways to make beautiful grips. Are my words true or, am I just trying to do some fast, self-serving advertising? If I wanted to do that, I would have said visit http://www.1911grips.ecrater.com a long time ago. I wanted to learn how to make 1911 grips & Carl led me by the hand with a kindness similar to how a grandfather teaches his grandchildren. That sounds a bit gooey, but he is that way as long as you are trying.
I also, just wanted to learn as a hobby, then I kept making them and decided to put them on a website and have sold a few. Among my favorite grips are the Osage Orange grips and that is beautiful wood. Every grip on my little site was created because Carl Wallace shared his time and his love of the art with me. My ability is still limited & I will refer potential customers to Carl because Carl can do it all.
More to come. I now have at my disposal, Medallions with the NFL and College Logos if any one is interested please contact me.
