This is just my first prototype, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I learned a lot through trial and error, and have bigger ideas now! I apologize for picture quality, I'm in the middle of unpacking after a move and haven't located the proper camera yet.

Materials used:

-Hinged Altoids-style tin
-3/32" thick Basswood
-Foam sheet
-Hot Glue Gun (this is only a prototype; better adhesive methods will be used in the future)

And now, a few pictures:

I like that. Have to figure out someway to accommodate a Schick Injector. The long section would need to be wider.

I don't know much about Schick Injectors, but going from some of the pictures I can find on Google Images, it looks like it would need a longer tin. Which actually isn't that big of a deal. Note: The tin I used in this project is actually a bit smaller than a conventional off-the-shelf Altoids tin. If I had a larger selection of razors, I'd surely be doing little projects like this more often. You know what they say about idle hands. Smile

Looks good Thumbsup and has given me an idea or two to try in my next effort and the one I need to make for Chicagotrim.

That is a very good idea you have and since the tin is metal it will really protect your razor from any damage.
Congratulations on your move and good luck.

Very clever setup. I love Altoids tins, and am always interested in the uses that folks find for them!
