I thought I'd share an easy way to make a razor rack that looks reasonably good. By "easy" I mean that if I can do it, you probably can too. And by "make" I mean drill holes in a box.

Finished product (excuse the poor lighting):

Find a box similar to this. "Mini wine gift box" might be a good place to start searching.

Evenly space your holes. A 6.5mm radius will create a circle with a 13mm diameter.
which should be big enough for even a Fatboy. (the holes become slightly larger
with sanding)

Looks pretty rough at this stage. A sand and a varnish will work like magic.

*Poof*

You could go super hardcore and trim the lip off the box; but that's not how I roll.

Ahh wine box. You're a genius. You could also stack them to be used as storage/organizer for under the sink. I've been trying to think of something like this for at least a year.

Very ingenious! I think you might need a few more of those, very soon, though!  Biggrin

Great idea. 

I've just requisitioned a lovely dark stained wine box for the exact same purpose. 

Unfortunately, I don't have enough razors to fill the box......yet!

Nice one!

If you added a strip of wood either inter the head alongside the hopes or under the end of the handles inside the box it might be easier to remove a razor one handed.

Nice work!

Very nice and good thinking.  An advantage is that you now have a home built RAD machine.  5 razors/5 holes.  Lightbulb

Nicely repurposed box. The razors get to dry and are easy to find when wanted.
Thanks for the idea!

More wine to get more cases to fit more razors, bys ... I only see a virtuous circle here ...
