So i finally got to do this.

This is the way we made the wooden combs, i may work for some and not much for other ones. please be careful if you do this as we do it. specially the hot glue part, if you find a better way to do it, i am all ears as we always try to improve the way we do our projects.

here is the full album of the whole process, any question, suggestions, critics, are welcome.

That is such a lot of work but a very satisfying outcome. I hope you get a good price for them.

not really, here in my country people don’t care much about those things. not when your main activity is trying getting food on the table and staying far away from the violence that rules my country. But yes, we love what we do. so that’s something.

Great looking combs. It really is an art to making these combs.

I know someone who makes combs, they supplied all styles to a few specialty shops and spa’s. One day they got a call from one of them, that they were very unhappy with her and accused her of ripping them off and not making the combs herself as she said. They pointed her to a web site out of mainland China. Some of the styles looked just like hers, there was even a picture with the same style combs laid out in the same order. She had one of the local day spa owners contact the other customer and vouch for her. Even with adding additional customers, her overall business has gone down about 25% to 30% last year due to this. She does custom laser engraving and carving also. She used to get orders from patrons of the businesses and that has really fallen off

Amazing… I love the tutorial. I always wondered how that was done. I do have a suggestion for the step where you separate the hot glue after cutting. A microwave at high power for 10 seconds will loosen up the glue so you can pull the pieces apart, let the glue re-cool, and then just scrape it off. I hope this helps.

Thanks, I hope it helps to those ones that want to make one of these.
and CowanNavy, i used to warm the blade, and kinda worked, but then i could burn myself, thats why i do not do that anymore. and the next one will definitely use a microwave and see if that helps.
