My Daughter ended up claiming this one for her legs. It’s a 5 inch bowl and matching brush with a CA finish. She squeaked when she realized she could have it. ( Don’t get a squeak every day for my wood work!) Osage orange with a silver tip brush.

Very nice, never really thought of making a brush, but I could use a nice bowl for the one I have. Curious how did you attach the badger hair and where can you buy it from?

the Brush knot I got from Golden Nib, just do a Google search and you’ll find him. the knot has an epoxy base which in turn I use a 15 min marine epoxy to seal it into the handle after I have sealed the handle inside and out with CA.

My first brush is the one I shave with every day and didn’t get sealed well. however my shaving soap keeps it moisturized and I have had no problems other than cosmetic appearance.
