Wood and Cork Grips

Postby Chester Kiekhafer » Tue Oct 18, 2016 7:02 pm

Hi All,

I was looking for ideas on how you finish your grips when combining both cork (or burl cork) and various pieces of wood? I've used cork sealer on my cork grips and thread finish on wooden grips, but I'm not sure what I should use on a grip that contains both wood and cork. My plan is to use various varieties of wood as inlays when making my cork grips.

Looking for pointers/tips/suggestions.

Thanks

Chet

PersoNALLY, SINXW THEERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN DENSITY BETWEEN THE CORK AND WOOD, I TSKE THR WOOD PARTS DOWN TO FINAL SIZE. ASSEMBLE AND GLUE THEM TOGETHER, TAKE THE CORK DOWN TO THE WOOD, PRESERVE THE CORK WITH CORK SEAL, THE WOOD INSERTS WITHH WITH TRU OIL GUNDTOCK FINISSH.
