  2. Shaving Brushes

    Here are a few more shaving brush handles that I turned. The first two are padauk with the badger hair knots installed in them. The one in the second image is Georgia pecan from my neighbor's tree.

    I made this end table to match the dry bar I made last year. It is made of red oak stain in Minwax's gunstock and finished with shellac. The top had a couple coats of ploy on it as well.
  4. No Stains Gallery

    Alvarado LJs II Jay came for a visit today to see my shop and talk wood. The Alvarado LJs have now had 100% attendance at both their meetings. It was fun to talk shop, tools and wood for a while. (Even got a few thoughts about the Boyz!) It made for a great afternoon.
