Alternative Ebony

When I visited a supplier of materials for wood turners, he showed me a sample of alternative ebony, alternative ivory and some alpalina - a sort of white striped resin material.  Here in the New Forest I'm now working with my craftsman to produce some sample brushes that I might offer for sale on my New Forest Brushes Blog next year.

I'm delighted with this sample made from alternative ebony. It is not easy material to work with but if it goes well, it comes up with an excellent finish. This is a Finest Silvertip sample.
