Hello,

I felled a peach tree last fall that has sentimental value and I'd like to eventually get a few brushes made. The pieces have been dried out indoors for several months. Could anybody provide me with a lead on custom makers who work mostly in turned wood?

Thanks for any info!

I have used him for about 12 custom wooden handles. A few attached.

Both Ferdman and Quinn Bob Quinn  outstanding. Bob Quinn is a sponsor here. Truly believe he the best handle maker in the industry at the moment and works in all media known equally brilliantly.

The guys are right. Rudy and Bob are fantastic. But you wanted complete custom, and i know vlad will build the handle to your specs.... He is not locked in on handles shape or keeping his own rod stock around. He MAY be more flexible. Bob and Rudy.... can't go wrong there either. I have wood handles with Bob and they are cherished. Have a couple of outstanding custom handles from Rudy as well. I will say Vlads finish is better than Bobs. I have had Vlad refinish 3 Elite handles.
