Here's a cabinet and shelf I made to house most of my shave gear. Never enough room but my wife has been gracious about it all.

Well done! That looks great and gives you such a great space for your gear. I did something similar about a year ago and I have been very happy with mine.

I think your wife gives you far to much freedom to do what you want Wink

Looks great, very nicely done, not sure about the glass, I would have preferred look through glass to see all the nice things inside.

Snuff, That's certainly an option and something to be considered when designing a cabinet. Not everyone will agree with cabinets designed by others for their own use. When I built mine I designed it with fully opaque panels so that folks couldn't see into it. Glass certainly was considered. If folks can see in that invites them opening the doors and touching/handling. Not what I wanted at all since mine sits above the obama presidential library chair and not everyone puts the seat down. I could see something landing in the hopper. The items in my shave cabinet are as private as my undies. Going inside is by invitation only.

Thanks for the comments. The glass used in this cabinet and another in the bathroom was chosen to match the shower door. Clear glass was not an option. While clear glass might have looked nice in the cabinets, I would just as soon have have a little privacy in the shower.

Hi

Nicely done Sir! Clap

Would it be possible to share a photo with the doors open (so we can take a peak of the layout inside)?

Take care, Mike

Here's a photo with the doors open. The cabinet is solid oak, no plywood except for the back. The shelves are all adjustable and I need to do some organizing. I have another razor coming so need to come up with a better arrangement for those. All in all, it has worked out okay. The brush in the cabinet is used for travel so it's stored there when dry and not in use.

Hi

Thank you Thumbsup

Adjustable shelves are definitely the right-way to go (IMHO).

Take care, Mike

Johnny, I am in Wisconsin, near Madison!
I've gone a bit nuts on brushes lately and am pretty happy with what I have. Nothing approaching Ben's collection.. He might recognize a couple that he once owned though.
