    Default Shaving Bowl, Brush, Razor stand.

    I'm sure many of you may have seen this piece before as I did it some time ago. Recently I've posted it in another Forum here ( Custom Builts and Resto's) and thought the DE guys might enjoy it.
    The brush is held with a hidden magnet. The entire piece is cherry including the razor scales I recently did to have a complete set. I built it when I was primarily into DEs,, and had to add the straight once I got into building them.
    That's a Gillette Rhodium hanging there.

    Nice work. How are you going to modify it to present the straight?
    Any day on this side of the flowers is a good day!

    Well for now the straight goes back with the rest of the collection. I rotate various stands etc. as the mood strikes me as not all can go out at the same time. What I do plan on building is a brush/bowl/straight stand based on a variation of this design which I'm sure many have already have seen. I could use this similar design and have something similar to what is holding these straights on the side of the stand where the DE currently is. Everything else could remain the same and swap the bowl from stand to stand. Then again,, why not make an entirely new piece so each razor has it's own stand. Why am I being lazy and trying to take the easy way out?

    Very nice work.looks like solid craftsmanship..
    Very impressive. I envy all the people on here that make stands and scales and restorations...sometimes I wish I had to tools and especially the talent to do what a lot of people on here can do.
    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks to all.
    As far as my work I now lean heavily towards straights, their restorations , scales, and now customs. I have always made custom brushes where I make my own acrylics ( butterscotch etc.) Then too there are strops. I just love building stuff as it's an offshoot of my regular work which is all custom as well.

    Boo-t-full

    From their stillness came their non-action...Doing-nothing was accompanied by the feeling of satisfaction, anxieties and troubles find no place
