Sorry that it happened.
If it helps any at this late date, I can assure you that it was an accident. Either a glitch in the data base which has caused other threads to be lost, operator error by one of the mods, or some other cause that sucked it into the Internet black hole.
I would have liked to see them. We had quite a few people fashion some wood grips, but few have ever made a wooden pump handle too.
I would like to give it a try some day with some birds-eye maple, and make a complete set. Grips, handle, and feed block. I think the maple would would look good on a black Phantom.
