    Thank you Sir. When I get good enough at TIG welding I will make myself a few back caps.

    If any wood turners/carvers want to up their game a bit, casting pewter inlay in wood was apparently a thing back in the day.

    Here's a link to a video:
    https://www.finewoodworking.com/2007/12/07/inlay-made-easy-metal-accents

    If anyone does try this, you'll need to either use the copper foil trick shown in the video or use a lot of soldering flux. Also metal + moisture = spatter. Always wear a face shield. You never know.

    Also, vintage pewter is just as easy to melt and use as modern pewter, and can be cheaply found. Well ventilated space, etc., etc.

    Thanks. You just need a sacrificial back cap for the brass threaded insert. Please tag me if you make one and post it here to be sure I see it.

  13. Have recently made a few custom shaving bowls and brush and bowl sets for sale. Resin in just about any color with custom engraved wooden lids. Some with Monograms and others with artistic styling.

    Those are stunning, Tim. Did you use a CNC machine for the lid engraving?

    Wow. Very cool and classy looking.

  16. Yes I did. Plan on doing a lot more styling in the future on both handles and bowls. Thanks.

  19. Any interest in this one? Not finished yet and newly carved. Opinions?
    Just occurred to me that I didn't say this was a lid for a bowl.

    Nice. But I'll never use something similar.
    I don't like to use my brushes on "hard" surfaces.
    I'd prefer the image carved in, and filled with resin.
    Smooth surface is nicer to me.
