It is except where ETSY files a 1099 on you Bonanza does not.  Bonanza is more like a E-bay without the majority of the cheap junk.  So I would say a little of both because on Bonanza you can list items as make offer but no bidding auction style.

Just so folks know we also do women's makeup application brushes.  I try to pick acrylic with nice prints that are colorful for sell and set them to beautiful kabuki brush heads!  Unlike commercial bought makeup brushes with like 1/2" handle if that is what they want to call that, we give the ladies a real handle to hold to eliminate finger fatigue from finger gripping.

Here is a giraffe print acrylic that is popular with the women.  This one is being donated for auction to the NC Zoo Society to raise money for the zoo.

Well I just finished another custom order for a gentleman wanting a robust manly brush made from teak wood which was a slight departure from my normal woods used.  I have to say it was a pleasure working with this wood and honestly quite natural given it is used in boat building so this is maybe a great marriage.

It is set to a 22mm Silvertip badger knot set to 50mm loft.  No staining, just natural appearance for that classic look as requested.  We are in full swing for all the needs of the consumer this spring/summer!

In the coming weeks As The Brush Turns will begin shipping brushes worldwide to open up our clientele.  We will have to figure out international shipping to gain an average and charge a flat rate for ease of shipping rather than figuring each destination individually.  We are sure we will come up on the short end mostly in terms of shipping but sometimes that is business!

Thanks Chad for the kind words.  The brush handle is sitting nicely on a shelf waiting for when you are ready my friend.

By all means and thank you sir.  We also do custom orders as well.  

I do have some more designs and features coming in a month or just a little beyond that folks may be interested in.  I will test the consumer waters as I say with one to see what reception it gets.

Here is a brush handle I turned from the Teak as well that I had no real end in mind.  If it appeals to you and you have a knot you are looking for a handle to set to it go to my web site and look at offer.

measurements-

Height- 2 3/8"
Opening-  approximate 1" or 25.4mm
Finish- hand rubbed urethane (2 coats) and two coats lacquer to a natural finish with no stain.

The only small flaw is the discoloration for either a sanding strike I suspect on the left hand side from the picture of the brushes bottom.  Other than that............what you see!

We are estimating that we are one week out from developing a women's leg shaving balm for applying after a shave to soothe the legs!  It will have the same added benefits as the men's but with a floral scent rather than a manly scent of course! 

So look for that to be launched after some R&D and testing by actual consumers to get the feedback we need.  What a great thing for that special woman in your life to have on hand.

Once again, thank you all for your replies and shopping with us.  We look forward to the upcoming summer months to place a few more brushes with a twist to our lineup.

Just wanted to update all......we have a new look to our web site with direct link to our store front.  This look is much better and quite honestly, easier to use than the other version!

It is also linked in my signature and here as well: As The Brush Turns Web Site

Here is a new creation in the works.  Problem is I do not know whether to keep it or offer for sale once I finish it Huh

It is my last piece of Bethlehem sourced olivewood from the Middle East and the only piece I have created with a gunmetal accent band placed at the top of the brush.

I have sanded it down to a fine smooth finish then I am using a new friction polish to give it that semi-gloss sheen look.  I think I will not lacquer it but leave as is here.  Decisions decisions!

Feedback welcomed of course on what you think of this creation and if I made more do you think they would be sellers or just dust collectors?

Feedback coming in for the ladies leg balm (LLB) rather than calling it aftershave!  Also, test subjects would rather see a misting pump rather than flip lid.  So changes being made and supplies ordered to do the change.

So if you have that special lady to include your wives that want a nice pleasing floral scented leg balm for application after a shave.............check our site come July 1st for the release of this newest product for the ladies!  It will also be priced until July 4th midnight at the same pricing level as the men's aftershaves.

We look forward to this new product and are excited.
