Very striking looking handles jegreen. Excellent craftsmanship. Love the grain on the wood. :clap: :clap:

Final results. Made 2 short handles and 2 long handles. Proportions look a bit off but prefer the longer handles barberpole type handles much more. Knot's haven't been glued in yet as I'm still playing around with which handle suits which knot.

Synthetic set at 14mm deep with 52mm loft
Silvertip set at 18mm deep with 48mm loft

Great work squire!

Silicone the knots in place for a temporary fix. Then you can test drive the knot installations before a permanent decision.

I decided to give this a try, here are my first two attempts at using a lathe.

Nice, the one on the right might still bleed some nice colour. Find Jacquelene Gibson on this group for some nice blanks for razors, ask her to do some 40mm for brushes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/5444546 ... ery=blanks

Well done!

It's something I want to try my hand at sometime soon.

I'm impressed Shaving B.

You seem to have a natural eye for good proportions on your brushes.

I've booked my father in law to teach me on his lathe as a Christmas present. Will definitely turn a handle before the year ends!

Thank you so much @Mikaar, @JHBBlade and @deepsouth. I have always wanted to learn to turn on both a wood lathe and metal lathe. I really want to get this right.

This was my first resin attempt.

I think this one will be the first to receive a knot, haven’t glued this in yet. I did have hiccups along the way with chipping, I think partly because I’m learning and partly the resin was chippy. This meant I had to make some modifications and changes to my plan along the way but still happy with the result.

I managed to get alignment right on this one.
