reworked grips

Description: I wasn't completely happy with my myrtle wood grips, I made them a little fatter but after using them for a bit I decided to thin them out. I also decided to darken them up and they came out looking great. I have several other grip projects going and when I'm done I'll give you guys the details.

The dark color really brings out the nice grain of your wood. What did you use to darken them?
