I finished up a very nice brush this morning and it has been listed and is available on my site at www.eliterazor.com.

Black Ash Burl - 24mm

Black Ash burl is native to the Great Lakes and Acadia regions of North America.  The wood of black ash is strongly ring-porous, making it ideal for basketry splint, barrel hoops, snowshoe frames, canoe ribs, and material for woven chair seats.  It is darker colored with more grain and used largely for furniture and interior finish.  Black ash is an important tree for the making of lacrosse sticks used by the Mohawk and other tribes of the Eastern United States.  The inner bark of the black ash was used to make a bark barrel by the Iroquois which was made for storing dried vegetables, fruits, and seeds, as well as clothing. The tree traditionally was a valuable medicine to many tribes in Eastern North America.

The brush shown below is made of Afzelia burl.  This is a very rare wood with exceptional grain.  This brush has just been listed on my site at www.eliterazor.com.

I will be out of town from 6/27 - 7/7.  Any order placed during this time will be shipped upon my return.  Please stop my and take a look, I have many beautiful brushes and razors available.  I will have internet access while out of town, so let me know if you have any questions.

This beautiful example of the Mokume-Gane fusion of Cobalt and Carbon is off to its new home.  I don't turn this material very often due to the increased cost, but the results are always amazing.

 Mokume-Gane (pronounced Moe-koo-may Gah-nay) is the ancient Japanese metal working technique where layers of contrasting color metals such as copper, brass, nickel silver, gold, and silver are fusion welded with very high heat and pressure into one solid block of metal.  Traditional Mokume-Gane is extremely rare and sells for hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for a very small quantity.  The name “Mokume Gane” refers to the visual appearance of a pattern in metal approximating that of wood. “Mokume” literally means “wood eye”, which would be used to describe a highly figured wood grain. “Gane” translates as metal. So, in English, “wood grain metal” is a near-literal translation.

Every once in a while, you stand behind the lathe with no preconceived idea of what to turn.  This happens more frequently to some of us than others, but that's another topic entirely.  I began turning the brush below with no goal in sight and let my tools just work their way around the piece.  When the dust settled, the handle shown below was the result.  It is very well suited to host a Fan shaped knot and, to my eye, it has a bit of a Buck Rogers vibe to it.  (If you don't know who Buck Rogers is, ask your Grandparents.  Even if you do recognize the name, call your Grandparents anyway, they'd love to hear from you.)

Any comments about the shape would be greatly appreciated.
