Here is my first attempt at making micarta scales for an OH I modded. I alternated strips of black and green burlap and used some scrap red cloth as liner material. The lanyard tube I made from a section of neck from an old propane torch. I still have to do a little final smooth sanding. I kind of wish I had gone with all green burlap and made the liners a little thinner but it is what it is now. Not sure whether I should put some kind of finish on the scales to bring out the color a little more.
