Here are a few more shaving brush handles that I turned. The first two are padauk with the badger hair knots installed in them. The one in the second image is Georgia pecan from my neighbor’s tree.

Those are excellent!
I tried to make one but my turning skills suck. And that is being generous! lol
I bet it’s a pleasure to shave using one of those.
Great job Brandon.

Thanks guys! The grain didn’t turn out very well in the photo, but I just love the padauk.

Very nice Brandon. It must be nice to shave with something you made yourself. They look really professional.

Haha, I only took one limb and a dead one at that! :-) Actually he’s trying to get me some more of the wood. Pecan is such a beautiful color.

Thanks Russell. I used Spar Urethane because these things see lots of water. :-)
