    Default Brush in stacked leather and brass

    Been wanting to try this idea for a while and thought that it would be a good first project on my new metal lathe. Turning the brass ends on the lathe was the easy part. Preparing the stacked leather took some trial and error. I ended up soaking the leather disks in hot hide glue to harden and stick them together. the hole for the knot cup was bored on the metal lathe as a forstner bit wouldn't work. The rest was turned on the wood lathe (hardened leather turns just like wood.)
    Here's a before and after shot.
