    Just stunning. Did your design take as its inspiration the knurling on the rhodium razor?

    No, not quite. It was actually a silver cigarette lighter my mom always had on our coffee table decades ago. I always liked the style and the way it swirled much like my design. Go figure!

    Default Shaving Bowl, Brush, Razor stand.

    Great work! How do you make the bowl? Is it carved, or made on a woodturning machine?

    Thanks guys.
    I turned the bowl on my lathe then carved it. Same for the brush handle. I've been a full time woodcarver/woodworker for the past 25 yrs.
    Time? Not sure, this aspect of my work is my 'playtime'. I carve full time, and my hobby is carving. Along with restoring razors of course.

    With a work ethic like that you'll sure to be a success. When you find an occupation that you love it stops becoming work.
    Good luck to you. You are a true artist.
