I've found an old C&E Boar Brush in my dresser drawer that I had stopped using years ago. My plan is to cut the bristles off as close to the handle as possible, tape up the top of handle for protection and then clean it out carefully with a Dremel, if necessary use epoxy to build a base in the handle for the desired loft height, shape up the base with the Dremel and then set the knot with epoxy. I plan to use a Super Silvertip knot from The Golden Nib and leave the handle in "as is" condition. Is this a sound plan? Any epoxy recommendations, suggestions or comments?
