I started using straight razor over two years ago and like almost everyone else in this hobby I didn't stop with one razor. When I reach 5 razors I found a cigar box and with a little bit of work made it into my storage box. Even when I got to 7 razors I still use this box by putting two razors in one slot. I've always been looking for the ideal box and enjoy looking at the photos in this forum for ideas. I finally saw some wooden boxes being sold in an auction site which I like and after a few emails back and forth managed to convey the design I want. Below is the final product, not perfect but I'm happy with it. The slots for the 7/8 are wider as I don't want the smaller razors moving around but this would be a problem if I decide to replace my 6/8 with 7/8, for now I'm happy with my razors but I might in the future decide to get more 7/8. I like with having 7 day rotation as I get to enjoy each one once a week.


Version one - my own diy box
