I ordered four different woods for brushes. I usually get 1.5x1.5 x12. I made a mistake ordering this stick of osage orange. I ordered 1x1x12. Well, it would normally be too small to make a brush handle with, but I got creative. I decided to make a small travel brush with it. I have a 20mm Tuxedo type synthetic knot coming for this brush. It should be here by Monday. I am making it the size of this made in England boar brush from my 1930s travel kit. http://jrshaving.blogspot.com/2017/03/vintage-travel-shaving-set.html 1x1x12 osage orange This is a shape I have used on several brushes. It is done with hand tools and a Dremel without a lathe.
