I made this wooden comb partly using my CNC router. It turned out fine, but there was a lot of sanding involved at the end to make the teeth a little thinner. I salvaged the piece of teak from an old deck, after jointing and planing it looked good as new ! Inlayed some polished brass pieces to decorate and lighten a little bit :)

Video of the fabrication process can be found here :

Cheers !

The wood and brass is a very beautiful combination.

:) Although most of my hair on top is scattered all over the planet your beautiful comb wouldn’t do me much good.
That said… I like the style with the inlay. Nice work!
