    Default Custom Barber Brush

    I finished this one up last night for Sharptonn. The materials and style were all chosen by him, and I think he nailed it. He sent me an Omega 98 he had, I removed the huge boar knot and made a new handle for it. This is it. The end of the handle is completely round, something I've yet to do. Tom hangs his brushes so there was no need for a flat base for it to stand on. The rounded end gives it that extra cool design feature.

    Way to go Harry. Sharptonn ought to love it. Wonderful step-by-steps. Something I need to focus on in my projects.

    Mike, I have so much acrylic it's a bit ridiculous really. I'll bring some to the meet, don't worry!

    WooooHoooooo, That is nice, Andrew!

    After seeing your work in various 'new' materials here, I really got the desire for a few examples of your work. Best part about working with you on design and materials is the fun of discussion and mutual descisions. Also, your eagerness to obtain new materials to make it happen as-desired and photos along the way make for a fun experience.
    I know you waited patiently for my responses a few times with the thing chucked-up and I appreciate it.
    Seems to be exactly what I dreamed of and (thankfully) some of my hair-brained ideas were put to rest after seeing it progress in pictures. I am certain to enjoy the handle. The knot is great as I had used it before, but the cheesey handle it came with put me off somewhat.
    Thanks, Brother!

    Ya, I really enjoyed doing this one. Your input on this one was great and the discussions on building it were fun. I'll trade with you any day Tom! Got any nice Swedes?? Haha, kidding. But not really, you have any? No no no, my wife will kill me.
