    A bit of a splurge - Molton Brown Hand Washes

    Thread Starter: CMan0928

    Yes, they're pricey. I believe $28 for 10 fluid ounces. I work in the medical field where most of the time all that's around is cheap antibacterial Dial that makes my hands feel like leather.

    Himalayan Salt Block

    Thread Starter: BenO

    Has anyone ever used a Himalayan Salt Block? I saw one at Williams & Sonoma yesterday and it peaked my interest. I like salt and it seems like a cool way to cook/present food.

    New antique store finds

    Thread Starter: flashover604

    Hi all. I popped into a little antique shop I'd never been into a couple days ago. Three feet from the door was a little glasses case with two Gillette TTOs. I asked the owner if they had any more shaving stuff and was rewarded with a decent Wade and Butcher straight in the original box. He made me...

    Cherry burl brush project

    Thread Starter: GolFisHunt

    Dug around in my pile of turning stock for a certain piece of wood but found this piece instead. The Made Rite is just there for scale. After a little band saw work I ended up with this. Chucked it up and drilled a 1" hole about 20mm deep. Remounted on a 1" dia. spur drive center. To...
