my lady was at Ikea last night so I had her pick up one of their tooth brush stands to hold some of my razors.

here's how it looks:

I think next time she's there, I'll have her pick up 1 or 2 more.

Well, I wouldn't have any stand at all right now since I stand my brushes on end in the cabinet. But, a freind from Alabama knew I was blade shaving and he got this knot in a shipment of pen materials. He had the Cocobolo wood, but he never even saw a brush before. He did a great job and the brush is actually pretty good. But it doesn't stnd up on end. Hence the homemade stand made out of 1/16" aluminum sheet. It works and I didn't need to have anything delivered.

cool! did you use
metal-snips to cut-out the profile?
did you use a dremel to sand the edges?

I too have a toothbrush holder, bought at Goodwill for 99 cents, that I sometimes use for holding my razors.

But on a daily basis I use the Becker razor and brush holder that matches one of my scuttles...

Or more often, I use this custom one from Cutting Edge Razors.

Actually, It was part of an old shelf I made for the medicine chest for my nook before I outgrew that area. I held onto the old shelf out in the shops boneyard.

To cannibalize part of that shelf in order to repurpose it I used carbide blades on my table saw and radial arm saw to cut it out. Then yes, a dremel tool to deburr the edges. I have a small bending brake that I used to make the sharp bends.

Tin snips would have left a bent edge that would just made problems for me. Aluminum cuts just fine with the right blades. A hand opertaed jig saw would have worked also, or a band saw.

At the top of this picture you can see the shelf that I cannibalized for the stand.

This is stand is for both razor and brush. It's made of Kauri wood and is from Goodfella razors in new Zealand. Ancient Kauri, is the world's oldest workable timber from New Zealand. Each Kauri tree grew for at least 1200 years and then was preserved underground for a further 50, 000 years!

That's very kind of you. I built it close to 2 years ago. Sadly I have outgrown due to various AD's.

Here is the little drawer.

good luck.
