    Been having a lot of fun with these Brachy frames @Peppermack and I collab'd on. This one is a 1/4" plexiglass core, Blue spacers, maple scales, blue/black G10 and mahogany Palm swells and topped off with copper tubes and mosaic pin details.

    It's set up for tubes and flats and I have some TB Blue on it at the moment with one of my new Speedy BB pouches on since I am shooting indoors.

    The maple is highly sculpted and was a lot of fun to design and shape. I have it shaped so it's a pinch grip but I imagine it can be shaped so it's more thumb brace.

    Thanks for stopping by!

      Very nice Metro!!! Thanks for sharing. I love the core and the combination of wood and G10!

      Total opposite to what is 'normal' Right :)

      The core was tricky to work with, there are tiny surface cracks possibly from the heat of the spindle sander. I still like the look and feel of aluminum but this has potential for a liner for an aluminum core.

      What a job! Wow! Whatever you choose for the middle... it's a stunner! Double palm swells? Why not!? Love the 'curves'!
