Jayaruh Brushes


Well-Known Member
As I said in my introduction, I make shaving brushes. I am retired, and it gives me something to do. I have made 441 brushes so far, and most of them have been adopted. I have owners in the USA, UK, Canadia, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Philippines, South Korea, New Zealand, Portugal, India, Italy, China, Albania, Australia, South Africa, Ukraine, and Texas.
I do not sell my brushes, but I adopt them out for a nominal adoption fee. I have slowed way down since last year and only make brushes on request. If you google Jayaruh Brushes you can see some of my work.
Here is my first brush creation, Jayaruh #1.

The first handle I made with a lathe was Jayaruh #98. All predecessors were made by hand using various other tools.
I recently made Jayaruh #440 by hand without the lathe.
I have made a number of Celtic Knot handles. Here is one.
Last year, I experimented with plywood.
I also enjoy making 400 type brushes.
It's fun and keeps me out of trouble, for the most part.
