    Default Trying some earth tones.

    I've been wanting to do this combination for a while now, and had planned on sticking a Shavemac knot in this one but a couple guys spoke up changed my plans. No worries.

    Top portion is Honey Jasper Tustone (Rekon Stone) which is one of the easier Rekon stones to turn with HSS tools. The base is Cocobolo, and as you can see by the striping, it's why I picked the honey jasper. They compliment each other very well. One coat of oil has already been applied, 3 more will be going on in the coming week. Badger knot is a 24mm Virginia Sheng silvertip set to 48mm loft.

    Not sure why I didn't start doing this sooner, but the last 3 photos of the finished brush were taken with my Olympus E-PL5. Way better shots.

    Thanks for looking boys!

    My friend, great work as always! Looks very nice! Next thing you know you'll be having combos of different Rekon Stones and NO Wood!

    Cocobolo has been one of my favorite woods for years. That's a real beauty with an exceptional piece of wood.
