Introduction: DIY Handmade Hairbrush 1

Picture of DIY Handmade Hairbrush 1

This is a handmade hairbrush with bamboo pins and wild boar bristles. I have never seen people trying to make hairbrushes by DIY before, so I tried it. I learned how to make the hairbrush on my own and made it from scratch through trial and error. Regarding a round type of hairbrushes, none of them has a cushion, but this one does have as my patent pending idea.

Step 1: Make Wooden Parts With a Handmade Lathe

I make wooden parts with the handmade lathe. The feature of the lathe doesn't need jigs. It is very useful and easy to make the parts.

Step 2: Make a Screw Thread

This is my handmade tap and die.

Step 3: Make a Brush Part

The things will be needed for making the brush part are thin strips of bamboo, wild boar bristles, a cushion tube, a screw punch, a handy router, a handmade tufting jig, and so on.

It takes long to make bamboo pins and refine wild boar bristles, which are hard work. I learn how to refine boar bristles by myself.

Step 4: Cushion Round Hairbrushes

Very good! To make them easier to use on yourself or others add 25% more length to the barrel.

Thank you for the advice. I try to make it longer.
