About The Finer Grain
The Finer Grain, and now Sarge's Grips, is simply an extension of the passion I have for custom woodworking with the exotic woods of the world.  There is no factory, there are no employees, no CNC machines or assembly lines, just me and my wood shop.  You are truly getting handmade and personal items that are made in ways that are quickly disappearing in the face of technology and mass production.  I enjoy the unique challenges offered by working in wood, and am proud to be able to share it's beauty with others.  I am one of the lucky few who are allowed to do something for a living that they can honestly say is their passion.  I get out of bed every morning and can't wait to hit the shop.  A fact that is not lost on me.  
I handmake each and every item you will find here on this site.  I select, shape, sand and finish every set of grips, every pen, every jewelry box myself.  If you don't find what you're looking for, feel free to contact me about a custom order. 
I don't stain or color the wood I work with as there is simply no need.  The beauty of nature is not something that I can improve upon.  I can only hope to showcase it and allow it to speak for itself.  Exotic woods come in many colors and textures and are from literally all around the world.  The finishes I use are clear and not only protect the wood, but allow all the gorgeous graining and depth of the wood to shine through.  Flat, matte, or gloss, the finish will protect the wood for years to come. 
I like to think that the projects I work on will become family heirlooms and be handed from parent to child for generations to come. 
I look forward to working with you on your project and sharing the beauty of exotic wood with you and your family and friends.
Please bear with me as I continue to add products and other items to the site.  I am as new as they come when it comes to website design.  I'm glad you're here.
My name is Ryan, but most, from my troops to my friends, simply call me "Sarge".  A title I'm proud to have earned many times in many situations around the globe in service to our Country.
Thanks for visiting the site,
