Shaving Brushes and Stands. Made handles and stand uprights from Coco-Bola since it is so oily. Should be really resistant to water damage. Will use a factory razor since no wood kit exits for the razors liked by son and grandson. We’ll be looking for one to add to the set though!! Brush handles are turned using a bottle stopper chuck from Penn State. I turned one (cherry) on a Nova Chuck wood-screw insert earlier and it worked okay too. Quick little fun projects using small cut-offs or large pen blanks. Thanks for looking!!

Awesome job. My sister asked me to make something similar for her boyfriend. What size did you make the brush holder cut outs? I don’t have a brush o compare or measure to so I am flying blind.

So you didn’t use finish? What Razor do they use?

Great looking Badger hair brushes!

The use double edge safety razor blades. Coco-Bola is so oily it buffs up real nice after sanding down to 400. Little paste wax sometimes might help.
