    Default Got my shop back up and running:))))

    So I made a brush.Have always loved diff. wood combos,This one is a Macasser ebony body with a Lignum Vitae top cap,in a few days the lignum will turn a dark green color when exposed to sunlight as the oils oxidize.
    Knot is a 28mm TGN grade A,loft is set at approx 48mm, should be a monster when she blooms.

    Thank you,the top cap will after a few days look like the top and bottom caps on this brush as the oils in the lignum oxidize from U.V lgt.

    Man, you are putting that shop to very good use. I can see where you would be at loose ends when it was down. Now it is catch up time, enjoy.
