This project was really three projects in one. Brush handle, stand stem and bowl. The brush was made from Sipo. I used this wood when I first started turning and its beautiful. The chatoyance of the golden highlights with the dark brown background make it one of my favorite woods to work. I got a little carried away with the epoxy, securing the brush to the handle.

The Amboyna Burl is another new wood for me. It is absolutely stunning with its swirling grain and colors. The oranges, tans, dark browns and golds give the wood such character. The shapes in the twisted grain seem to go on forever. This wood compliments the stand very nicely and the little bit of sap wood help to tie it in with the cherry bowl.

Cherry is a very comfortable wood to word with. It has a simple and elegant looks about it and it polishes up very smoothly. The shine helps reflect the chatoyance in the side grain. The slight amount of sap wood almost matches the amboyna sap wood and hopefully you can see the connection as I do.

I am almost certain my brother will love this piece and will put it to good use.
