New multi color shaving kit!
« on: June 06, 2011, 12:04:45 PM »


Terry finished this shaving kit this weekend. I love this wood. It's a laminate of dyed wood to get that striped look. Only thing is the kit comes with an acrylic blank for the stand. He turned it on his lathe, sanded smooth and finished with a hard shell finish. The brush is Grade AAA badger hair. It is softer than the other one he has, which would account for the higher cost.

I listed this shave kit in my HAFshop yesterday. Hoping that maybe it'll get some attention and hopefully sell. I have it in my store as well, but it's too expensive for here.

I still love it, but I know I won't use it. That's the problem for me, it will end up on a shelf in the bathroom. Our is too small for anything that isn't used. So I'll just pout instead.

Thanks for the kind words! Good news is that hubby sold the Cocobolo one I had listed here. When he was doing a show a few weeks back, a woman expressed interest in it and they exchanged information. Well, she wants it and another one! Needless to say my husband is very happy.
I've been bugging him to set up his own shop. Then his things won't get lost in my shop. I'll keep trying. :-\

Thanks all! I'll be sure and pass on the compliments to the Mister!
I do love this wood too. It looks so cool with the stripes.
I'll bet it would make a great pendant! Hmmm?

Congrats to hubby on the sales!  One day, when we have some actual room for ourselves we will have one of those to sit proudly in the bathroom!
