I'm Just got my art of shaving puck and could not restrain myself and ended up using the puck once. I don't have a soap dish so far and would appreciate any recommendations !

Traditionally, they go in a wooden bowl.  But pragmatically, you can hit that puck with a cheese grater and press it into anything you want.

To the op:
First and foremost, it's not at all a disaster.
Just have it kept clean, between each use.
A bowl is less necessary for the face-latherer (but of course indispensible to the bowl-latherer).
Either way, a bowl is a practical means to storage, so you might want to eventually get one suitable for you.

This is what I use and it works fine for AOS pucks.

Any bowl you have in the kitchen will work for the time being. There, really, is no need to cover the soap or even put it in a bowl/dish as this is just a practical action taken by most for convenience and storage.
Once you find something that accommodates the puck, then you can get more of them for future pucks. Shy

I  am not sure if I picked up 4 or 8 oz. I am pretty sure it was 8oz. They are almost the same dimensions. They work wonderfully for AOS pucks (and DR Harris too)

I use these:

I do grate the puck up and press it into these containers.

I have an empty, clean B&M Unscented  4oz. jar. Don't know the dimensions of your puck, but if you want the container just let me know by PM.

it fits perfectly into one of these...perhaps the ultimate wooden bowl....Plisson Thuyawood

Go ahead....it's Christmas!  And while you are at it, go ahead and get the Plisson soap.  A wonderful, underrated vegan soap made in France.

I too use Ikea Grundtal tins for several of my shave soaps, including AOS, and they work quite well.  After each use, I let the tin sit for 24 hours with the lid off so that the soap can dry.

Another IKEA Grundtal user here.

Another option is to use an empty container from another soap (if you have one, of course).
One of my AoS pucks fits perfectly into an empty T&H wooden bowl.

You can get empty wooden bowls of all sorts on ebay, these work well...   http://www.specialtybottle.com/plastic-j...hb8wd.aspx   I even put one of my WSP Rustics in an old crystal  sugar bowl with a lid.   Just my imagination once again, running away with me.

I use the DR Harris cloned wooden black bowl from Connaught Shaving.

Tight fit the first 2-3 shaves, then it's perfect.
