Perhaps some of you have already heard of Raffir USA Wood ?!?.
They supply many, many makers of firearm grips, and knife handles. Their stuff is really unmatched, and I noticed recently that they also carry an assortment of Woolly Mammoth fossils.

Here's an example of a matched set of tusk blocks (pre-sized to make into grips/handles.
Link: https://raffirusa.com/collections/r...ils-matching-sets-tusk?variant=39411484000437

They developed a process where the wood products and fossils are placed in a vacuum, and then various resins are forced into them, to stabilize and harden them.

Anyway, as a yet undefined project I'm gong to try, I picked up a set of what they called Tusk & Tooth mammoth ivory. These pieces are 1/4" thick, and about 5" long.
They have to be cut with diamond saw blades, and I'm going to investigate a
(wet) Tile cutter, or similar.

Yesterday, I photographed them. (sorry for long'ish post !)

Those are amazing. You might need another stainless 1911 for those. :-)

Heavy storms are rolling in here and the dog is trembling on my lap. He’s not a fan of thunder either
