    Default Polo style Shave Mac

    A brush I was commissioned to make, that was right up my alley. A Polo style handle with a 24mm Shavemac silvertip 2 band fan. The handle material is Faux Tortoise with a black top. Really love the way this came out.

    That is gorgeous! I happen to be biased for green and tortoise things, but I may have to swipe that from the purchaser's mailbox...

    Tremendous shape. But I did like it somewhat before you sanded it. Must keep that shape in mind. How long is it? PM me ab out getting that wood to you.

    Ya I've been liking the look too, of the handles just before polishing. Only thing I don't like is how the sanding swirls go horizontally across the piece. What I need to play with is getting a perfect matte finish.

    This handle is 75mm long

    Nice work on that tortoise Andrew. Found that material very prone to chipping while turning.

    Me too Mike. That Faux Bakalite turned so nice and this Tortoise was a pain. Must have slightly different composition or something.

    The shape and the length, keep them in mind. Need to save the pennies (and nickles and dimes) before my next brush.
