Steve, better known to many of you as Oscar 11 has graciously provided me some brush handles to work with.

Thank you Steve. I will have some planning and work ahead of me in the coming months! Pictures will come as they are completed.

Just let me know if I can take the 23mm Acrylic handle of your hands, purely in the name of science you understand Wink

This is really exciting! One of the most fulfilling DIY projects in shaving is building a brush (I used to think it was restoring old double-edge razors). You're about to have a lot of fun. Thanks for documenting the process for us.

Glenn,

You are not kidding about enjoying brush restoration and making.

Here is another handle that Steve provided that worked out wonderfully.

Gary,
Would love to hear your process. I just received the artisan handle that Teiste was selling and have never made a brush. I can barely make coffee. Please share.
