    Default Finishing Harrywally Brush!

    So a while back, our resident brush-handle genius copied one of my vintage handles in a 'skateboard' pattern made by stacking and gluing veneers in this thread.
    Texas 2 band in Skateboard veneer

    Lucky Me, He gifted the handle to me!

    While it looked cool, I decided to get it cleared as deeply as I could using my crude, redneck knowledge and things on-hand at the shop. Got out the supplies.
    A can of Duplicolor gloss wheel coating, some 3M Finesse-it polish, and some liquid glass polish/finish.

    Took a while...Sanded with micromesh down through the grits and 7 coats of the clear wheel coating, 2 days to dry and fine steel-wool between coats.

    After 7 coats, some hand polishing with 3M Finesse and 3 applications of the Liquid Glass. The pics don't do it justice. It is super slick!

    The fit on my 2-band knot is so tight, I am certain I can use it high and low without adhering it to determine my exact preference before I goop it in permanently!

    It's low....

    Anyhoo, it will go home and tried-out before the knot is set. I decided a green O-ring in the groove looked best. Turned-out just like I imagined!
    THANKS, Andrew!

    If it makes any difference, I like the high set of the knot. Beautiful.

    What an awesome shave brush handle. Even better with the Sharptonn Super Shine regime.

    Dang that's a cool brush. Nailed the profile of the original very well, as well.
