Hi Friends,

My name is Paul Trotter. I've been an active member on The Shave Nook since 2015

I make custom shave brush handles in beautiful Bellingham Washington. I do my own resin pours and turn everything by hand on my lathe.

Please feel free to visit my Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrotterHandcrafts

I like the grain structure on this guy... may I ask what kind of wood? Etsy isn't playing nice with me today, so I can't look it up in your store.

Welcome to our Artisan group, Paul, and best wishes for success.

Is this Dymondwood or a similar material?

Hi,

Ah.. local to parts of the US, including Appalachia. That explains why I have not seen Robinia pseudoacacia for sale as blanks over here.

Very neat. Thank you Smile

That’s a very nice swirl pattern you achieved, Paul. It’d look real cool on a Stratocaster  Clap
