This my first hand made brush. First of all, I want to thank Jim on TSD for his inspiration and pointers. I could not have done this without him.


I decided to go "free-form" and not do a turned version. I cut the base shape using a band saw and then a whole bunch of sanding. I have a table top drill press so I cut the knot hole using a Forstner Bit. The wood is Cocobolo; the knot is a TGN Finest (20mm). I finished it with eight coats of Watco Danish Oil (Natural) and several coats of Minwax Wood and Furniture paste polish.

I am pleased. I have several more on the queue. This is fun.
