Matthew Walker Knot whisk broom
 1/4" sisal rope. I added a 3rd strand to increase the size of the knot and whisking part.

I am swept away.  Neat thing to make and use.  Thanks.

That looks like a really tough guy's shaving brush. ;D   I'd think that could be a pretty handy little brush for a number of jobs that require getting into tight places. :thumbsup:

Very neat!

A few years ago I made a rustic witch's broom out of some pampas grass, a stick, and some jute twine for my niece's Halloween costume. It actually held up good enough to be used as a real broom.

Your little whisk broom would be perfect for clearing sawdust off of a table saw or drill press.
