2 years in the making, from coppicing/drying the cherry branch which has become the handle and growing the sorghum last season, the parts were finally all available for putting a broom together. I didn’t have enough seed heads for a flat broom, so it is more of a Nimbus 2001 model.
I described more about how I made this in my blog . I am no expert on making brooms and most of my effort was simply experimenting.
Handle – drawknifed, coppiced cherry
Broom – sorghum bicolor
Binding – Yucca and NZ Flax
