Hello friends.
Here I show a small wooden box from the Chinese Bazaar (can not remember the price, but do not think it reached EUR 2) I've tuned to host a Gillette Super Speed ​​40's style and a British Gillette # 58.
Materials: The box from the Chinese Bazaar. EVA foam I bought at the Chinese Bazaar too. Colors of the flower Solanum Dulcamara, lilac and yellow. EUR 1 each sheet. Double-sided adhesive tape.
Tools: a cutter, a ruler (to measure and cut), a pencil (important: host it on your ear when not in use), and a cutting mat to not spoil the table.
Process: the depth is measured from both sides of the box. Cut strips of that width. Put double-sided tape. Stick the EVA foam in the inner side of the box. At the corners apply pressure with the rule edge to bring the EVA foam to the corners as possible. At the end, cut with the cutter. The bottoms are then measured and cutted as rectangles. Put tape on them, and stick to the bottom. Review the edges of the bottoms with the rule end, so that they are tight.
Resting place for the razor handles are layers of EVA foam sticked and cutted together. The last three layers are cutted to accommodate a blade box.

Photos: These are all finished, but I think it is no problem with the explanation that I have set.

Now I put pictures of another box for my Super Speed ​​Flare tip. One from the 50's re-plated in 24K gold by Dave Glynn, and one from the 60's. They differ slightly in the knurled handle, the arrangement of the rings, and the rings of the knob, and that the 50's head is a little higher.
I sanded the boxes with a grit sandpaper 1000. I'm not going to varnish, for now. They look like the Feather ASD1 box.

That is... pretty and awesome! A wonderful idea for storing the razor, and would make for a wonderful way to present a gift too.

Hi, Nice work!

Wouldn't it be great if instead of that blue artificial thing a real wood has been used. It would have completed the overall look of the boxes.
