    Default Finished up another brush - boar's hair.

    Finished up another brush. This one's for my oldest son. He likes boars hair over badger and he bought the biggest knot he could find. The hole for this knot is 1.25 inches/ 31.75mm and the loft is 60mm. He wanted a fat brush handle. I had some walnut so I used that - this thing is pretty meaty. My largest forstner bit is 1 inch/25.4mm so I had to cut the whole wider with a bowl gouge and clean it up with cut off tool.

    Finished with a satin osmo poly oil. Love that stuff - keeps the wood looking like wood.

    Nicely done. I too am loving the satin Osmo Hardwax oil. It's fantastic stuff.

    I'm not sure - my son bought it and had it shipped to me. I think it was golden nib but I didn't pay attention to the packaging.

    I think the big boat knots from The Golden nib are Infact Omega knots.

    It really is - I bought it after hearing your reaction to using it. Great recommendation - thank you!

    You can see on the picture with the handle on the lathe. pin chuck, that there were some small cracks in the wood. The osmo poly oil filled these in nicely (I used your technique of globbing it on and letting it sit for bit then wiping off the excess (2 coats). I had one larger crack on the other side and I filled it with medium CA. I ended up having to sand the crap out of it to keep it from being so shiny. Not too happy with the way that crack looks. Any suggestions?

    This stuff here was recommended to me by MikeB52. It's excellent for filling larger cracks in wood. Quick and easy, and lets you carry on with your project almost immediately. Pour in the powder, and then put the liquid overtop. Let it sit until it hardens and away you go. A spray activator can also be used with this to speed up the cure time, but you need to be a bit careful using that. Using activator runs the risk of the CA turning white if you use too much. Just the smallest sprits is all it takes.
