I would never have thought of brushes as turned items! But think about it, how many brushes have you ever used that didn't have some type of handle? And weren't most of the handles wood? If they were wood, I'm pretty certain that they were turned handles!
And now that we've arrived at turned wood handles, we only need to decide which wood we want to use! The turnings will be spindle turnings so they're fast and easy to make. We talking in the 10 to 15 minute time frame!
So, making brushes is a fast and easy turning job!! Our task is to create beautiful ones for our use or for gifts!!

|Shaving Mug and Brush Set |
By: Don McIvor
In this AAW reprint, Don shows us how he turns a shaving mug and a brush set from one piece of cocobolo. The mug is face-turned and the brush handle is spindle-turned so it's a great project for both of the main types of turning.
