Gentlemen, I propose a handle themed and/or "rod stock" thread of the month.

Each month members could share pictures for the enjoyment of all.

The only criteria is that all brushes featured are made of the material chosen for that particular month (or  perhaps handle shape).

Brush manufacturers all access similar rod stock and all borrow inspiration for their designs, so participation should not be limited in any way.

As an example, we could have a butterscotch brush month, or an M7 handle inspired month, etc etc.

Anyone keen?

Thoughts and suggestions welcomed...

Interesting idea . I am not sure if all members have a big collection of brushes to showcase In a month with different style and rods. For example , I don't have more than 10 brushes.

how about if we do "handle of the week" ?
This will Give everyone a chance to pitch in

Thanks Ben for a great idea

I think this is a very bad idea: it will just enable me to buy more brushes and make me dissatisfied with my collection. Sisi1  Good idea, but as just suggested perhaps a weekly would allow greater enabling.

I like the week-long idea. It would likely be easier to keep the thread exciting for 7 days vs. an entire month. It would be nice to see everyone's collection, be it small or large.

I agree with Dave. Even if we can only infrequently post a picture, the thread will make an interesting read. Andiamo.  Thumbsup

This is an interesting idea, but I believe most of you have already seen all of my brushes! Shy

I only own 41 brushes now, Ben, so not sure that I can participate with different handles for different months.
But I can showcase one new handle a day for a month plus extra week

I am game for most things brush-related if you gentlemen don't mind more photos of my handles.  Shy

Ok, so a weekly themed thread.

Any suggestions for the first week to commence on Sunday?

Let's throw up some ideas and I can set up a poll if needed.
