    Default 26mm TGN Gr.A in Iron wood.

    Im happy to have finally got this sucker done and I can't wait to use it. Its a 26mm Grade A silvertip knot from The Golden Nib set in an Iron wood handle. The block of Iron wood was a chunk my Grandfather had been hanging onto for quite some time and never got around to turning it. So after sitting at my parents place for 16 years it finally got what was coming to it.

    I turned it to replicate the Kent brush handles, they have always caught my eye as a nice shape. I bored the hole down to give me a nice 54mm loft. The polyurethane finish was challenging to do, it doesn't like to stick to the oily wood. Wiping it with paint thinner before applying the polyurethane is key, then sanding with 400 grit in between coats.


    Here's a pic just after I was finished turning it without the finish and the knot just set in.

    Here's the final product with the knot epoxied in and the polyurethane finish.

    Looks simply wonderful all the way around! Great shape and the poly really makes the grain and color of the wood pop. Nicely done!

    That really is a beautiful brush. It's strange but I find that I am really drawn to brush one of my favorites parts of shaving.

    Beautiful wood and knot! I also have some exotic woods waiting to get what's coming to them. Now I just need a lathe. Hope it gives you bunch of lather. Double O
