You did fine. Very nice.
I love the wood shaving brushes.
I feel them lives.
In the italian wetshaving community, I'm lucky enough to have a friend who was a carpenter.
And he lives in the near town.
His creations are under the nickname / trademark of Bat71.
Unfortunatelly with this COVID19 he has closed his shop.
Anyway I've a couple of his handmade brushes.
He loves abalone inlays (so do I), and this is his sign.
These are mines.

Found a piece of old, rotting maple in my backyard.....I managed to pry a couple of sets out of it...
Very nice! Well planned out to make the stand also !!
Very nice work. Great looking set you have there.
That is awesome work! I’ve had a few wood/resin combos that didn’t work out for sure. Yours are beautiful.
Love those inlays, Pierpaolo!
Very nice. A completely round bottom? You must be a bowl latherer!
Thank you, Jason.
ischiapp.......I am sorry I stuck my picture in the middle of your thread...excuse me, I meant to start a new post. Dave
It's not "my thread".
I think Jason @jtspartan opened It to let people show artisanal shave works.
Do not warry, Dave. Just post the pics in here.
I started it, but it is a thread for all turners or makers of shaveworks for sure!
Beautiful wood- what a find!
My wife has taken over my workspace for now as she needs more space for all the stuff that relates to the business. The weather is nice so I've set up the lathe in the backyard under the shade of a large maple tree. The biggest change in all this is that I can't turn resin outdoors, there's just no way to contain the shavings. So, this is making me rethink my approach to shaving brushes. I'm trying out some stuff and am really happy with the results so far. It's nice to not be limited by the size of a mold!
Beautiful work. Fantastic fit and finish.
