    douglas wood brushed

    Hello everybody


    Today I show you my first brushed vase made of Douglas wood


    I never thought that Douglas wood was so obstinately


    I think the structure that comes through brushing is even more fantastic


    Kind regards

    That's neat looking. You mean Douglas Fir, right?

    Tom, roger had a video showing how he made this piece, and he used a wire cup brush in an angle grinder. I think that is what is meant by "ingerman (topfbürste)"

    Really nice piece, video would have been more instructive if you had shown the actual brushing. Maybe cut down on the roughing out a bit. Beautiful product no doubt.

    Very Nice. What material is that brush made from? Thanks, Ron

  10. The brushing technique has been around for at least 50 years. It is especially for soft woods with wider grain patterns.I made a few brushed pieces back around 1970 and was shown the technique by an older Amish guy my dad knew. Amish guy's business was custom turnings, porch pillars, staircase parts, baseball bats. ( He made a 37 inch bat for me) I used a standard hand wire brush and scorched the surface with a blow torch to get more contrast between the harder part of the grain and the soft parts between. then scrub it along the grain with the brush. Looks like Roger used a brass cup brush in an angle grinder.

    The other John Jordan uses and teaches that technique.
