EASTER PROJECT - SHAVING GEAR STORAGE

When we're not sourcing that hard to come by shave soap or that rare straight razor we find our selves pursuing an activity or unique interest, let's hear what keeps us busy!

EASTER PROJECT - SHAVING GEAR STORAGE

Postby BLES » Wed Mar 30, 2016 6:46 am

Having a few DE razors in rotation I haven’t had a suitable storage place for them where they could be on hand for use. I used an old cigar humidor to store my razors and blades (blades bottom shelf and razors top shelf) which looks and works great but I always had to walk to my study room to fetch my razor or blade of choice (a bit unpractical). I always played with the idea of making a shelf to fit in my bathroom cabinet to store only the razors and blades in my current rotation which would not only be practical but should also fit in with the cabinet. Having some free time over the Easter week-end I came up with this design. It keeps up to 10 tucks of blades and 6 razors. Now I only have to exchange them with the gear in the humidor once in a while.

Great job Bles.

I need to do something similar and put a shelf under my bathroom sink.

Thanks. Shaving became so much easier with the extra storage space. :D

Super idea. Is there a slot for hanging your brush?

Thanks JHBBlade. No, I didn't add any slots for the brushes but one can easily add some by extending the base. I have some other idea for my brushes I'm working on... ;)
