    Fabulous brushes!! All three have great grain. I especially love the handle design of the middle brush!

    You are the man!! :a29::a29:

    Steve nice handles!! What kind of finish do you use? It looks great.
     
  3. Vie-Long has 'em. I couldn't find loose knots, but I'm no brushsmith.

    Vie-Long offers them but I don’t know if you can available to drop in as easily as you would a Boar/Badger...thus the “knot of dreams”....LOL

    Where did you get the wood for the first one on the left? Zebra wood I have seen but not that wood...

  7. Exotic wood blanks can turn up larger pieces. Both 2" and sizes suitable for bowl turning.

    Good Morning Rudy , Thanks for the Kind words
    I have been using 10 to 12 coats of CA with about 3 coats of spray Lacquer in between.
    seems to get me nice and smooth and it holds up nice .
    I have some brushes that I have had for over a year with no finish break down.
    I wet sand between coats .
    Rudy your work has always inspired me to be better.
    Your handles always look so crisp and Beautiful .
    One day I want to get one of your beehives :)
