    Default Made my first brush! Hand carved.

    Comments? Suggestions on doing this easier without a lathe? This took a few hours of carving and sanding.Name:  20141002_123010.jpg

    Looks cool! Wait till the wood guys come on. Lots of oil finishes, etc would look great and be tons easier than doing CA, esp since you have them all put together.

    Yea I was too excited to epoxy the knot in it to figure out the CA so I figured I could just Tung oil the heck out of it. The scales are just put together with screws so i can take that apart and do something fancy if need be

    I guess I don't know what you mean, fast is good, cheap is good to as long as it turned out well. Unfortunately I am impatient and jump into things full bore as I have only been straight razor shaving for 3 months and already have 8 blades, two sets of custom scales and now a second handmade brush
    ......This is awesome!

    Fast/easy costs money. [Lathe etc.] Cheap [knife and sandpaper] costs time and more skill/practice.

    Gotcha, Well I would love to have a lathe, but I don't think the wifey would be very fond of that in the living room of our apartment.

    Too true man, I hate seeing the word handmade on ten a penny lathe turned out by the million junk. What you have made is the buisness not a 30 second machine job. Well done sir
