Altamount stippling

I recently bought a set of Altamount grips from "printrep" off this forum. I was reluctant to get them as I really want a new set of the Kimber grips coming out with the latest edition of the firearm. Kimber told me the grips would be available, just not sure when.

So, I got the grips and the gentleman gave me an excellent deal. The grips arrived and sure enough there was enough slick surfaces to make the gun uncomfortable to shoot. So, I decided to try to stipple the slick areas.

I am using my dremel to get the desired effect. And each day I do a little more to create the effect I am searching for. Pics included and so far pleased with the ongoing effort.

Thanks folks. I will work on them a few more times then decide if I need to seal the wood with a poly of some sort. I am thinking a matte finish polyurethane will work the best. It seems like it is all guess work as I cannot find any wood stippling going on outside of general carpentry/specialty work.

Updated effort

Well, my wife said the grip looked like it had jewels in it, that was enough for me. I told her I wanted the shiny bits gone...Anyway, another couple of short sessions and and a strip of Talon grip tape added, almost there IMHO
