This would have to be the ultimate shaving accessory...

[attachment=2301]

It's a circa 1870's Victorian Mirrored Shaving Stand.

Made of walnut and a marble top. It has drawers and a height adjustable mirror.
I want one!

What is your ultimate shaving accessory?

Ben, I'd have to say a Barber chair. Although that might be overkill unless I also hire a barber! Undecided

The chair would be nice, but not fulfilling it's complete usefulness without the barber, so I guess your ultimate shaving accessory is really a barber shop! Biggrin

Anyway, here's one...

And on second thought, it looks mighty comfortable and I nice place to sit after your shave and to ponder your next... You don't need the barber after all! Biggrin

Beautiful mirror I would like one too. But I would have to build a house around it. My current house is too small.

I wish I could afford to buy things like that.
I love antique furniture but I have neither the money to spend or the room to keep it in.

I think my wife would like that shaving stand even more than me. Any one know how much one of those would go for?

I wouldn't call it the ultimate accessory, but I have something similar (much more humble thatn the one posted) that I like to use from time to time ... some summer mornings:

A garden shave in the summer is a nice change of routine.

Wow what a fantastic lifestyle! I am most envious of your outdoor summer shaves. What a brilliant ultimate shaving accessory.

Tony, that is great. How relaxing that must be to shave outdoors, if the weather permits. Lovely landscape you have there.

Wow, never thought of it but shaving outside would be great on an early morning!

There is an interesting YouTube video out there by GeoFatboy where he shaves outside... in the snow. Funny video if you guys want to check it out. The camera lens kept fogging up.

I'm thinking I'll take a basin and mirror out onto the deck one of these mornings, since it's warming up nicely.

If the lake by my house were on the east, it'd be perfect. Smile I'm one house off the cul de sac that's right by the lake. I have uninterrupted sight lines, and a couple of different neighbors that have invited us to use their access. It's like having the benefits of lakeside property without the price hike and shore maintenance!

I think my ultimate shaving accessory would be a lathe. Really, a woodshop, but I already have a serviceable router, table saw, grinder and hand tools. I'd love to be able to turn things like brush and razor handles for myself and others. Display/storage cabinets, racks, etc.

If I took a basin and mirror outside I would have an unobstructed view of the fences around my backyard. My dogs would be at my heels looking up with anticipation for me to feed them.
