Any pictures of these hand grips, would like to see em!

How about a CNC Mill/Lathe using some scan of a person’s hand, then it makes ergonomic shape to grasp?

I have thought of using some of this thin bendable birch plywood and covering some areas of my motor bike with it. I am going to see how close areas that are near heat from the engine are before finally making any decision though. The birch has nice grain and is a bit light colored, but I may use dark walnut stain on it and maybe also put gloss over that.

What I don't want to have is colors of paint that do not go well with the wood color, but I already have red for all except the engine black high temp type, so I may or may not try this.
