    Thanks Dave ! It's a break from handle turning and an Avenue I always wanted to explore . I'm trying to source more larger diameter wood to male more of this style . I also want to try a few smaller variety for shave soaps .

    I can't speak for the others but I think mine comes from a desire to create more than skill or talent . I'm still learning as I go about this hobby. Thanks for the kind words Dave :)

    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:

    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.
