    That is a nice looking brush. Heck of a bloom!

    Looks fantastic, and a much better handle than the oak or birch that typically comes on these brushes.

    Wenge is starting to become one of my more favourite woods. It does tend to be very splintery tho.

    That's really nice, I love the way the grain stands out like that. You can't beat the natural look of wood.

    Great job, love the shape of that. Wenge has great grain, nice dark color looks fantastic. I think I recall harrywally had a link to a guy bleaching wenge and the bleach only acts on the lighter grain giving a contrast effect.
