    Specs-
    Handle Material: Polyester Resin
    Knot: TheGoldenNib 22mm Finest Badger Fan
    Knot at base: 22.5mm
    Loft: 47mm
    Handle Height: 55mm
    Knot wasn't glued in in all pics, but it was straight when it was finished

    This brush was amazing, loved it.... Unfortunately it wasn't mine was made for a friend, in exchange for him donating the price of the the brush to his no shave November charity


    And below is the first one I fully completed
    Also made from Polyester Acrylic, with a TGN knot, but don't have the specs on hand

    This one was slightly crooked after the glue up lol But, like I said, it was the first one, and I was dumb, and I drilled the hole after taking it off the lathe.
    Still works a treat though, and gets used regularly 5 years later


    And a crappy shot of a couple more design ideas that didn't make it to the final stages for various reasons

    Left to right for the three without knots
    -maple chair leg turned for practice and design testing
    -same acrylic as the other one, but left unpolished. Poorly planned, the knot base area was too short and I couldn't drill deeper without busting through
    -Claro walnut, with gold rub n buff in the band. Nice stubby handle, but got a bad catch near the base, so that end is unfinished

    No, i wish! I think these particular blanks came from either Rockler or Penn State Industries

    I am currently working on working out the kinks in a cheap HF pressure pot so I can play at that in the future though

    I really like the purple luminescence of the first one.
    Good job

    Yeah, that purple and metallic copper blend was just incredible. Unfortunately, after making that brush, then shattering another piece on the lathe, i didn't have enough left to make myself one
    Definitely going to have to see if that pattern is still available to get some more of it one of these days

    The walnut one looked very nice. I bet it would have held a seriously nice big knot.

    Thanks!
    I held on to the busted piece, so that I can redo the design later
    Stubby, with a fat knot, was definitely the plan on that one!
    Still have more of that same Claro Walnut on hand for "some day"
