Today i finished 2 new brushes that i turned a while ago. Thay come out real nice IMO.
Both are knoted with 24mm Finest Badgers from TGN. and the wood is coated with superglue and then polished up with micromesh.


First is a brush i made with dark Curly Koa and imitation horn.
I went with a oldschool barber type of handle on this one.

And this one is a 2 tone natural color Amboyna wood piece. The dark lines are something i pick up from watching Lewis. It's friction burning with a piece of wire thats done in the lathe.

Those are gorgeous. Beautiful work. The curvy grain of the Amboyna is sexy!
