I made a set of side plates for my 101st there a few months back...simple process if you have the right tools. I used Bocote wood, i think that's how it's spelled, and put a hard gloss finish on it when I was done.. When i get home this evening i'll post a pic of them on here....

I made a set out of a broken shed. I split it in half and worked it down with a dremel tool. It was my first try, I got the shape right, but when I traced it out and then worked it down, I got it a shade to small. The color turned out a real nice bone white. When I figure out how to post pics, I'll put them up.

I made a set for my Guardian out of antelope antlers, one side got a little to small around the top though. Kinda rough but I liked them, they stink pretty bad when you are cutting though.

Just built a set of side plates for my Old Hoyt Smoke, look awesome and was not too bad to do, used a chunk of ASH, real hard stuff by the way, sanded and filed, wittled and filed some more untill I had what I wanted!
When I get my camera I'll post pic's

i made some out cherry.. they looked good. cut them out with the jig saw then used the dremel to get then down to the right fit. They work aight but still not as good as the factory fit for me.. i could prob get them better if i took a little more time.
