A friend of mine (Lisa) goes to Cambodia six months each year and does charitable work. One of the things she does is work with a Cambodian dentist to teach kids about brushing their teeth and the importance of dental health. As part of that program she gives out toothpaste and tooth brushes. She asked me to make a large toothbrush to use as a prop to keep the kids attention and to make it fun. I found the perfect brush at the dollar store, cut off the handle and inserted it into a routered recess in the handle. This was the result. She hasn’t asked me for a set of teeth—yet.
