    Ray's brush handles were turned on his engine lath.

    If I'm not mistaken the three pieces were screwed together and also glued.

    Thanks for all the process pics, Roy-He had a whole table full of those beauties at the Asheville, NC meetup about 6 years ago. Some of the most beautiful shaving brushes I've ever seen.

    I love mine! Here's the Pic Ray took after he'd finished turning it and got the knot installed--

    They are 'solid' and for me I like the heft in my hand. According to my digital scale it weighs 230 grams OR 8 oz.

    I'm 99.9% sure Ray said he used Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish to shine the handles on the lathe before moving forward.

    Those are spectacular looking brushes. I think if I had a couple of those, I might part with all my others.

    I believe I posted an in-progress pic of this walnut brush, but I can't remember; my CRS gets worse by the day. Anyway, another brass band job with about 7 coats of Tru Oil and a 22mm 2-band badger from Maggards.

    I think I'm gonna work on the cocobolo number with the copper band next.
