    That's a great job.

    I want to try my hand at some kind of restoration too either brushes or razors. The problem I have is a lack of tools. Having read your post it seems that you did all of this with minimal tooling. That gives me some confidence to start hunting round in the antique shops myself. Really good looking brush and a great idea to balance it our with cork too. Thanks for sharing this.

    You did a fantastic job getting rid of them Rick. Well done, and enjoy!
    Or laying in a cup like the last picture.

    Nice job!

    I don't know, mug rims are pretty smooth. I can't see the rim of a mug or bowl doing that. Unless it had some shards of glass sticking up to keep out intruders.

    For this yes, essentially just wet-dry sand paper and some epoxy. It's really nice and rewarding to restore a brush or razor. I enjoy it a lot.
