Finished turning a new brush yesterday in my favorite tall shape. I used a wood block from Southeast Asia called Afzelia Xylay aka alligator skin that comes from the Afzelia xylocarpa tree. The 3d grain and color is just beautiful and deserved a nice super gloss coating of superglue. Now to the hard part, decide what knot to set for 24mm. I'm thinking a 3-band High Mountain White.
