Brush

Mon Nov 12, 2012 7:28 pm

This is a 24mm silver knot that I've had for several years. Handle is sapele, just because I have a boatload of it. Finish is 2# cut shellac wash coat, sg poly. Wood is not stabilized, so it does wear a bit, but the one I use with a walnut handle has been in daily use for many years and is still going strong. Doesn't look so great, but it's hard to tell early in the morning.........

Anyway, thought I'd share. This is for a customer, I guess for a Christmas present.
