Here is my first razor rack. The oak and wooden dowels cost less than 4 bucks. I must admit that my dad did most of the drilling, sawing, etc due to my semi-permanent disabilities. I did design it, gather materials, hold the wood steady, apply stain, apply polyeurathane, etc. Will probably always use this one and build a wall mounted storage display for my new acquisitions.        

Sorry about the MEGA SIZED PICS. I guess I shoulda used the TinyPic PlugIN. Won't happen again guys.

I'm partial to shaving sticks but am using up the remnants of the tubs that Regularfella gave me. That is why there is no cup storage or placement. I may make a simple tray out of the same wood to hold a mug and my bottles of my "smell good stuff". My little girls call aftershave and cologne "smell good stuff". I'd position the tray on the other side of the sink.

That is awesome!

Nice to see that you "get it". Some of my friends look at me funny if I mention wet-shaving.

My humble digs:

It looks a bit different now because I've added a spoon display rack to the right. But it looks like you and I have similar ideas.

Hey that looks pretty cool...nice job! My Dad worked most of his life as a contractor/ carpenter and is really talented at making things out of wood...I inherited NONE of those traits, so I may need to get together with him for some father/ son time to make something like that.

What makes it even better is that until my near fatal wreck in June, my father and I were never really close. Afterwards, our relationship is so much better. It was really good to spend 2 hours with him in the warm sun figuring things out and working together on this thing. I'll never voluntarily part with it.
Being a STAR WARS fan, Regularfellas collection rack made me think of a Lightsaber collection! Ancient but superior and misunderstood weapons against mans mortal enemy............facial hair!
