    Default A couple of attempts at brush stands

    It's hard to find decent brush stands for when you want one either for looks or function so I thought I'd try my hand at a few prototypes since I work at an HVAC shop and we do custom metal work(keep in mind I'm a plumber so my skills at metal work are minimal) Wonder your guys opinions.

    This one is stainless and industrial looking, I decided to weld a few pieces. It fits my 28mm black ship whaler and my chubby 1

    This one is aluminum and I still have some sanding and polishing to do to give it that nice smooth shine. This custom fits my blackship 28mm custom brush

    I was wondering how he stood on his head and took pics. I always need to use my hands to steady when I stand on my head. Mounted to the ceiling makes more sense, thanks for clearing that up :<0b......

    Oh and besides the fun the stands look cool ! Might want to do a brush or swirl finish. Shiny is a pain to keep shiny.

    Thanks fellas, I don't own a lathe yet so I can't start on trying my hand at brush making yet so this was the next best thing. And suggestions of shapes or materials that would look good?

    Great to have a way to hang one with the fat handles, hanging from the handle rather than the base of the brush.

    I like how the first one looks, wouldn't change a thing about it. The other one is pretty nice as well, nice work.

    Nice! Most of the ones you buy are chrome plated, which I don't care for.
