WildWestBrushworks is taking a short break

Note from shop owner 5-27-20 Wild West Brushworks Family update: I know I've been silent over the past couple of months, but I wanted to post an update when we had big news, rather than at every small milestone of the rebuild. As of today, the flooring is being put into the home, after which will be counter tops and plumbing trim out. This means we will be back home by about this time next month, after cleaning and the punch list is completed. That puts us at just about six months for the rebuild, which given the early estimates of nine months to rebuild, makes us very happy! We've been fortunate to be able to stay at my parent's home, which is in the same neighborhood, and make daily trips to our home to see the progress. This has been difficult at times, but it's finally starting to look like home again! In the downtime, I've kept my eyes open for deals on the big ticket items needed to get back to brush making, and am happy to say I have everything needed just waiting to be set up. The workshop (aka shed) has been wired for power during the downtime as well, but I will be finishing the interior and adding an a/c unit before I can start back up. Then I'll make a few handles for myself to knock the rust off. With that and just generally settling into the house, my goal is to relaunch Wild West Brushworks on September 1, 2020. I will go right back to my regular format of adding a brush handle, or two, (or three or four) almost every day, and will start with my original prices as another way to thank the community. I would just ask that everyone have some restraint to allow more people a chance to get a brush at a low price rather than buying multiple immediately as they are listed. I can't say enough how appreciative we are of everyone's support and generosity. It has truly kept us positive and able to keep focused on the good during this trying time. I can't wait to be back!

    I have been living in the Wild West of Florence, Arizona, for ten years. When I'm not at my day job or the lathe, I'm spending time with my wife and two kids. Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions
Is there a restocking fee?

Yes, because of the type of customization that each brush receives, there is a restocking fee on any handle that has a knot installed. If you wish to return a handle only purchase, there is no restocking fee. The restocking fee is 25%.
