What makes this one more luxurious you ask?

I could go off about the triple plated & polished finish but....

It's a prototype, so it's a little dinged up. Please forgive the scratches.

Solid brass plated in copper, nickel, then chrome.

It's a heavy piece. I'll need to have stronger boxes made. Tongue

One size fits everything up to 26mm for now. Maybe I can come up with inserts that can reduce the size. Probably too costly to actually develop.

I'd like to see one that could hold up to 4 brushes. Looks nice.

Due to the construction, that would actually be a possibility to switch out the top for a 4 brush model.

I'll look into it.

Anyone else interested in such an option?

Could be as simple as buying an extra piece or I can see about splitting the production into two lines. The base is the hardest thing to make.

How about 1 for 4 brushes and another for 4 razors?
Great looking stand!

I like it. Constructive criticism: the hanger plate up top looks like a box end wrench with all the angles. Smooth them out and contour for flow, and you will have a winner. Get them to laser or water jet that top piece instead of what looks like chopping it out on a punch and shear. Also, an ever so slight upturn on the ends of the forks really makes a difference of items sliding off.

+1 I would have to agree with Jeff's comments! These suggestions would really improve the look of the stand.

I've never been too into stands, but if I ever bought one, it would be that one. Looks like it would make a nice show piece in the counter. Nice work!

I agree with Jeff; I would try to smooth out the angles to make a rounded contour to match the base.

Yes, the edges will be rounded. I'll look into water jet cutting. Upturned ends shouldn't be a problem.

A bit of Blue Sky thinking here.............

Your design concept is in my mind Stylish / Simple / Elegant with a modern twist. As for the Brush/Razor cut out's. Most brush & Razor stand do not address the issue of different brush size handles.

As for myself if it were possible for the Brush cut/out to have an adjustable fork cut/out, only one fork needs to adjust the other solid, and a threaded adjuster arm moving in & out to accommodate different diameter/width of handles.

Or maybe the brush fork cut/outs could be spring loaded again to adjust to different diameter/width of brushes.

Or you could just put these ramblings in the nearest round filing cabinet
