Let me preface this post by saying that I don’t spend too much time on the lathe. I own an old Atlas/Craftsman metalworking lathe that sort of does woodturning as well, but it’s not ideal. I generally only use the lathe when I’m turning a handle for a chisel or some other tool. I view turning completely as a utilitarian task. That said, my neighbor bought a shaving brush knot made of boar hair and asked if I could turn a handle for it. He’s really into straight razors.
It’s made from a piece of marble wood I had sitting around. The handle has a slight taper toward the center. The brush knot was purchased from this site. I’ll probably be making another one soon it seems.
