I got a killer deal from Patriot for an ATT cap, two baseplates, and a Windrose handle.  I had an ATT cap and a TiBam handle to make two razors.  

So I spent some time at the lathe and made two stands

The one for the Windrose is just a polished 'bullet' style.   But I wanted something special for the TiBam.   So I fluted the top with 12 flutes

On the TiBam stand, In addition to 'fluting' the top, I put 18 facets around the base. then bead blasted the whole thing and polished some of the surfaces to give it a t-tone appearance.

I like to incorporate a blade-use counter into some of my designs ... the way I use them is to load a new blade and rotate the stand so that there is a clean blank facet facing me.  After the first shave, put the razor in the stand and rotate the stand so that there is a single 'pip' facing me.   No mater if I get back to that razor in a day, or don't use it for a month, I know that the razor has one shave on it.   Shave, clean and dry, and rotate the stand to the 'two pips' .... rinse and repeat so-to-speak.

I have some stands that have a blank and 1 - 5 pips ... so I could use that bade 6 times ... but I've abandoned that and I find that my sweet spot for most blades is 4 shaves and into the blade bank.  

Thanks for looking

Man, you have got some Serious skills. The stands you’ve made pair perfectly with the razors. Clearly you have an eye for aesthetics. Maybe we’re seeing the start of a fledgling niche business?

Uhhh…Yeah.
As the “razor facilitator” here, I think I should have a stand like that!
Ya think?
