Certainly I am not going to the extent with restorations that others have been doing, but here are two that I completed recently. Up to this point I have been cutting and drilling the knots out. With these two, I used the steam method and find it easier, less messy, and vastly superior.

These are TGN Finest at 18mm. The bores are filled with five nickles each.

Those look quite classy, Jeff. I especially like the contrast of the black/white of the knots with the bright colors of the handles and stands. Well done!

A great job on the restoration of both brushes. The colors are so bright for their age. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Jeff, the plastic on those is good and thick so steaming would work with those well. Excellent work!

Both restorations look excellent, nicely done sir! Thumbsup
