Just click the image to make larger. Looks like original grips, painted and brushed to get wood grain as described in another thread. Looks good. :great:

That's exactly what it is. I also put some gold paint on the HP logo for a "medallion" effect.

Yep, I put some Minwax Satin poly on there, 3 coats. Seems to be holding up better than the shellac I tried the first time I did this.
