I will finish setting the knots on the last two this week, but these are my first 3 turned handles.

The bug has bitten! I hope I am progressing a bit.

Keep in mind, I have only had a lathe since January.

Happy to make a shape...the knot is TGN Best B2
My first from Rosewood

A little better...the knot will be a TGN Super Badger fan
Second from granadillo

Third is desert sand

Holy cow, Mike ... you weren't kidding around when you first mentioned this lathe business!

Nice job ... I look forward to seeing further creations from you.

Thanks, guys!

I obviously have quite a bit of learning to do, but with practice hope to get much better.

I will post final knotted pics later this week. I still have a TGN HMW knot that will need a handle.

I can actually see not ever buying a brush again.

Very nice work I like the desert sand shape. The brush handle turning becomes addictive. You will end up with a large collection I can say from my own experience Wink

Thanks, all.

And yes, Brian, this will be addictive. Biggrin I want to try to make some soap bowls/lids as well.
