Nice job. Those SHD knot are pretty nice, IMO.
Have you ever made anything out of synethics like G10 or Micarta?@greydog Thanks, I appreciate it. I've been turning for quite awhile. I'd say about 20 years or so. I got interested in making coyote calls and it just grew from there. I've been a wet shaver my entire life (66 years old). When I started looking for straight razors I found a few shaving forums and the rest is history. I don't sell any brushes but just make them for my experiments.
G10 is a very hard fiberglass composite. Lots of material, very compressed, very dense and really strong.What is G10 ?
Very interesting. Thanks for the info!It actually isn't too bad to work with, though it wouldn't breath it in. I would say it is similar to working with iron wood. I use it for knife scales and the end result is quite wonderful, kind of a synthetic grain that really pops when you finish it with linseed oil.
So I have just received in the mail the 26mm 2-band Fan from Maggards
I had to make a New Handle for myself , I used a Maple top and Cocobolo bottom
I really Love this Maple ,The chatoyancy is amazing .
I will let you know how it performs on my Face . View attachment 955948 View attachment 955949
