View Full Version : Couple Maple Burl Brushes
12-07-2011, 08:57 PM
I tend to lurk around (and enjoy!) the B&B forums, but thought I'd say hello and share a couple of the brushes that I've made over the past year.
They both use TGN knots and maple burl finished with CA.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Very nice! I wish I had room in my garage for a lathe.

Thanks for all of the kind words everyone, and thanks for pointing me toward the hobbyist forum Natchez. Looks like I need to have a few more posts before I can use it though. :wink2:

Very nice burl. I love how you never know what you are going to get out of the burl until you turn it. Like a Christmas present every time.

very pretty grain!

You know, you've actually got me wondering about whether or not I should try turning a couple of brush handles when I get home.
I tell you what, I'll turn a few, and post the pictures, and we can trade if you see something that you like.

Excellent brushes. That maple burl is gorgeous stuff...could stare at it for hours, enjoying all the little twists, turns, spirals, and other figures.

Wow, those look amazing! The figuring of the wood is gorgeous, and the machining is just as impressive!
