Sebastian: As an evacuee of Dorian the hurricane, I’m sharing my Spouse’s cabin at the Lilian E Smith Center near Clayton GA. She has been coming here the past few years for an Artist Residency, lucky for me to have such a beautiful place in nature to escape to. While here I’m Brushing Sebastian with the “Tail of The Horse”. After we have smoothed out any scraping and end grain furries with Equisetum (AKA Horse Tail), we go to the next finer abrasive which is the Tail of the Horse. When a luthier re-hairs violin, viola, and cello bows, they use a hank of horse hair, most typically from Mongolian ponies. When the hank of horse hair is done there is a think brush of course horseh air left over. Dorian Barnes sells these with epoxy binding the hair together to make a really nice stiff course brush. I brush the wood on the side edges of the horse hair to give a bit of a cut, kind of like a very very small scraper. This brushing smooths the wood without changing the grain contour and removes any remaining dust and furries
