    Looks great. I think a solid top would be a nice contrast on it. I'd vote walnut.

    I voted for Walnut but I will listen to the Eye's of many :)
    and Paul :)
     
  2. Any way you slice it, it's going to be a beautiful brush.

    I like the looks of the first two for the handle myself.
     
  5. You can post one up you like as well. I was just offering up an initial palette.
     
  6. I'm with number 2 as well.
     
  7. Steve, did it take longer to glue it up or turn it? You've done it again, beautiful.

    Dave ,it takes the most time cutting and glueing and then cutting and glueing and then waiting for the glue to set :)
    the turning part goes fast once you look at the wood and find the shape that is in there .

    I have this one on hand , it is a 26mm faux Boar knot from PAA Cherry & Walnut.jpg7.jpg Cherry & Walnut.jpg8.jpg
     
  10. Man that is a great looking brush.
     
  11. It is indeed beautiful. And therein lies the art: finding the shape that is in there. I could never do that. Though I did cut hair well, which was kinda like that....
     
  12. Sure!, I like that knot as well.
    The whiter than usual hair for badger goes well against the wood tones.
    A Boar might look nice as well. Its really hard to tell what will look good unless you put one in or simulate it being in the handle.
     
  13. Love it as is! Looks great.
