    Default 2nd brush attempt in walnut and pewter

    here's my second attempt.some thrift store pewter and some walnut i've had lying around a while. took some trial and error but i got it close to the way i wanted it. sometimes one has to settle for good enough. bought a new lathe in the process (hopefully better than the $2 one i used for the last one) so hopefully the next one will go smoother. part of the fun/challenge(and frustration) is making do with what i have. once i figure out what i'm doing i'll share some "how to" photos.

    Lovely work! You've really sparked my interest in getting some pewter from the thrift store. You've really made it look good.

    Nice look.
    I look forward to more turnings and a few walk throughs.

    That looks great! I am thinking of doing some ferrule ends on my brushes as an accent. Just have yet to do so. But may definitely do it to change up the looks of wood.
