A fireside broom that is small enough to hang along-side tools used in a fireplace. Broom has a narrower sweep for use in and around the fireplace. This broom is also handy in a car, boat, camping tent, or shop. Broom corn sweep can be sewn flat or round.
Wooden handles are made from several different species of hardwoods. Each handle is unique. I search our wooded areas, fence lines, and creek banks for small weed trees, dead-fall or drift wood that is rich in character.
Strong nylon twine is used to plait the 100% natural broom corn onto the handle. The length of plaiting on each broom varies due to the nature of the broom corn.
Natural fibered twine is used to sew the sweep. I use cotton and waxed linen twine to sew the sweep. Each broom is sewn 3 times to firmly hold the flat, Shaker style shape of the sweep.
