Thanks for the inspiration
found the STL colt 1911 on another site
thought I'd see if i can make both sides and then glue them together next time.

Stained but not Tung Oiled yet.
Took me closer to 25 hours total
Over 8 hours for the .010" ball 10 degree taper Cutter on Finish pass on the Colt itself.
Walnut Slab off my pile

But this will make a good wall hanger  ;D
Thank Again for the Idea, yours looks great.

I think that if YNN ever does that it will be a working model  ;D

I had a chance to visit this shop a few days ago. He has made a fully functional colt all of wood. Well, functional in that every internal piece is there, I dont think it will fire. He also makes very fine pistol grips. He has 4 mills running, all  on Mach3 with some amazing control work.
