I was going to make them the same, had everything cut out and lined up, and the customer asked if I could make them different, but the "same".

I'll post up some finished pic probably this weekend.

Here's my set up. I purchased the lathe used, not wanting to spend much before I actually figured out if I was going to enjoy making grips.
I have
Jacobs chuck for the tail stock
Live center
4 jaw chuck that will hold a 2" block for boring the holes, and the mandrels.
mandrels for turning
One special tool for turning butt grips without boring all the way through. I got it from through a guy that sells them on one of the rod building forums on facebook.
