That’s right, our lathe is good for more than just pens 🙂 I’ve been meaning to make myself a shaving brush for some time but never seemed to carve out time to do so. Well a lazy Sunday morning was all it took to get my rear in gear and finally get to work.
I’ve had give or take a half dozen large stopper blanks from my caster Jonathon Brooks sitting in a cabinet for at least the last 3 years. So I picked through them and grabbed one that I didn’t think I was going to use for a customer piece and got to work. This was a throw away half and half casting that Jonathon didn’t think would be worth much and had thrown in his cast away box. However I had hope for it.
I’m glad I did because I LOVE the final look! So much so I’ve asked him to make me a matching set of blanks so I can turn a razor handle and razor stand to go with it.
This is setup with a 21mm badget hair brush. I’ve already put it to use and love it. Can’t wait to finish out the set.
