  1. Simple turned shaving handle

    Simple turned shaving handle

    Nothing fancy. Just a simple turned shaving handle for a gift. The blank is that "tru-stone" material (Azurite-Malachite-Natural-Look) which polishes up very nicely with micro mesh and handles a wet environment well.

    My first attempts at building a segmented piece for turning. It is Walnut Maple and Cherry with purely ornamental walnut dowels. the finish is CA glue. I am pretty happy with this but I need to get better guides for my new band saw.
  4. Cocobolo Shaving Brush

    Cocobolo Shaving Brush

    This is a cocobolo shaving brush that I made for my Father's birthday. I used a silvertip badger brush knot as my Father deserves the best. I turned the handle, sanded to 1200 and finished it with Renaissance Wax. The knot is epoxied into a hole I created with a forstner bit on the lathe.

  6. Shave box

    Shave box

    I started shaving with a 1962 Gillette adjustable Slim DE Razor and made this box for traveling. This was kind of an experiment that turned out well enough to use. I have no idea what wood it is as it was a piece of scrap I got from an estate sale. It is finished with Tung oil.
  7. Bathroom shelves with sliding dovetails

    Bathroom shelves with sliding dovetails

    I needed a set of shelves in my bathroom to hold my shaving equipment, so I decided to build a set out of western maple. This was my first attempt at sliding dovetails, which I mostly just wanted to use for the visual effect with the contrasting wood colors. I cut the joints with a 5/8"...
  8. (Almost) Matched Barbers set

    (Almost) Matched Barbers set

    When I got my first DE shaving set, I wasn't quite happy with it. The main problem was that the shaft on the razor was to short, and the brush was a little light weight for my preference. So I had an old rosewood knob and some plane hardware in my left over box. Ordered the badger knot from...

    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.

    Shaving Brushes and lathe practice

    I recently made myself a traditional wet shaving set. Complete with Double-edge razor, badger hair shaving brush, and a drying stand. It led to friends and family asking for prices and to make them a set. So now I have my work cut out. I received 15 orders. Here is the first 6 shaving...

    Shaving Brush-Curly Asian Satinwood

    Holy Cow! Asian Satinwood(Pyinma) is beautiful! I had never heard of this wood before and it came included in a variety pack from woodcraft. Does anyone know why its not more popular?! From what I can find, its more common to find it in a curly/quilted figure than Maple. Anyways, it was...

    Homemade Shaper or Table Saw Fence - Biesemeyer Style

    Its been a while since I've posted anything, so I figured I'd post about the fence I built. I built this to go on to my Delta Rockwell Shaper that I will be restoring. The fence is a Biesemeyer style and has a 2" tube on the back of the shaper that supports the wooden cam lock. Pull the lever up...
