Spalted Maple

You are making some beautiful brushes. are you using a lathe then belt sander? After seeing your brushes I've been thinking about getting a blank and using the cheap harbor freight 1x30 belt sander to make a handle similar to yours simply because it's the only handle shape I see that I could use just the belt sander to make.

I have a Northridge Tools belt grinder for Knife making....No lathe....I freehand an Octagon and then shape it with an 8 inch contact wheel.
