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.

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. :-)
