    Introducing my first attempt at making a handle. I am aiming for a somewhat organic feeling brush.

    Looks great @Joewa! The most common handle profile is turned on a lathe giving a symmetric shape. There's no rule says you have to do it that way. The antler handled brushes I've seen in SOTD photos accept the irregular natural shape as Nature supplied the material.

    What species of wood? Is that a horse hair or synthetic knot?

    Looks good there, Joe. Just be careful you don't get BFD (Brush Fabrication Disorder). I started simply and am now over 325 brushes.

    The wood is Manzanita that had been culled by the carr fire fire, The knot is a synthetic 22 mm.
