    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.

    That is awesome work! I’ve had a few wood/resin combos that didn’t work out for sure. Yours are beautiful.

    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 did.

    I started it, but it is a thread for all turners or makers of shaveworks for sure!

    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!
