    That bottom is came out freaking awesome! I don’t know why but out of all the repairs you’ve done this one impressed me quite a bit. It looks factory made that way.

    Well I finished the Erskine ...

    I decided on the 22mm Maggard's synthetic knot that fit nicely with only a small amount of sanding inside it's receiver. I re-lettered it in yellow by the advice of SWMBO.

    And as always ... more to come! :D

    I got this very messed up brush in an order last week and decided to give it a little TLC.

    I found a flare nut that fit the bill.

    After a good soaking in Teak oil and setting an 18mm synthetic knot ... it looks much nicer.

    I come to realize the brush was a Barbershop shaving brush.

    I hate the original tops on those, looks like an old chair foot!

    Great way to improvise. I really like the look it gave the brush as well. Very nicely done.

    I just looked back at the post when you showed the brush before restoration. Wow that turned out great!

    Thank you; I have a tendency to be drawn to the sadder cases ... more of a challenge. :happy088:

    That Erskine looked like it was definitely a challenge.

    I normally wouldn't have bothered with it if it looked as original. I alway thought they had the personality of a chair leg or door knob. It gave me a challenge and now it's on it way to a new home and not in a landfill. :)

    To be quite honest, I wasn't sure if it would self destruct when I was leveling the bottom or if the copper bottom would work out. That is why I took the steps I did.

    You do a great job Enrico! You are very talented. Do you mind if I ask what you do with all of the brushes you restore?
