Wood to pair with polished brass.

I'm going to give my shiny brass some wood.

What species do you guys think will pair nicely. Going for grips and a pump handle

Thanks

I like a traditional dark wood like walnut. I think it's a nice contrast against polished brass and it's a good durable hard wood yet is not too bad to work with.

Yah, this is what i was thinking also.

I know you can make me grips, but can you make me a foregrip?
The foregrip would be like a pump handle for a sheridan marker, but without the notch on the back, because it's not moving and hitting the trigger frame. I would want it a little bit shoter than a lb pump handle. Like 6-8 inches

I will be working on a stock and pump grip combo for a PMI1 I picked up. It'll be a battle style pump handle. I guess to answer your question, yes.

Ok, do you think you could make me one in walnut, or maple, or something similar that i could match to a set of grips?
I would basically want a pump handle, just not threaded for a pump rod, and with no cutout.
I don't like battle style grips.

I think maple wood look nice

(couldn't help myself)

Alot of things can go nicely with polished brass.
Here's a pic of a gun I just finished for a member:


These pics dont do justice for the burl of the wood. There's alot more activity than shown in those pics.
The wood used is kiln dried curly Cherry with 10+coats of polyurethane.

Looks really good stuffy, but I'm thinking a little darker.

Anyone got any pics of maple?
