I wasn't sure where to post this, I apologize.

I am a carpenter by trade and decided I'd start making some custom razor stands and such. The first one is solid Alder in English Chestnut stain, sprayed with a satin United High Build finish.[Image: 029cca622957a7c779531918fe321b8a.jpg]

The second is a "live edge" slab wood wall hanger, drying with a coat of poly urethane. Due to the natural uneven edge on the bottom, it is sitting on an angle atop my router table, so the shelves appear crooked, but when completed and hanging on the wall of my shave den, everything will be on order. I will post finished picks of the wall hanger when completed. [Image: b2ebc8ab9e9b9eba8be602263fe152f5.jpg][Image: 82a0e05c45336112c8ad35a7f9eeb550.jpg]

What do you guys think?

I'll be the first to say, that i think that's the best stand I've seen, PERIOD!, for multiple razors!

Great job. And if i may, can you actually take a request for a duplicate, for the first one?

Beautiful. If it can be made multipurpose to include shaving brushes, it will be nirvana.

Beautiful work. I love wood, especially crafted by an artisan. Carpenters, such as yourself, are artisans!

Thanks man! And yes, I could take requests if that is allowed here on this forum, if not let me know. I was scolded and my post deleted on anther forum for mentioning reproducing these for sale.

Thank you! And your exactly right, it seems a bit lacking without one! That was my next plan, to imagine a way to incorporate a brush holder into the next one.

THANK YOU to ALL for the compliments!
Here is the completed wall hanger. It's not fancy, just reflects my simple rustic taste, which I realize is not for everyone. I made this one intentionally small holding only four razors, simply for my daily rotation razors, cream and brush. Please excuse my $6 Luxor brush , I have yet to invest in a quality brush.

Very nice work, particularly on the Alder stand.  I'm impressed with the interior routing on the face.  Although, in 20/20 hindsight, I suspect you wish you'd made it a wee bit larger. Angel

Thank you sir! I do , but more so I wish I would have went ahead and incorporated a brush holder into this one

You're more than welcome.  The thing I've found with wooden brush stands is that it can be a bit tricky to get the hole sized correctly so the brush fits easily, and stays put.  Although now that I think about it, routing the hole might make that job a bit easier.  Hmmm....  Inspiration. Smile

Glad it gave you an idea man! I've found routers to be UNDER rated many times. There's so much possible with just a table saw, router and the right fasteners. If you turn one out with a routered brush holder, shoot me a picture, I'd love to see it

I like the 8-hole, alder/chestnut one just the way it is.  If you were to market this one, or another one like it, I would definitely be interested.
