Make your own Razor/Brush Stand

  1. Looks like something that could work for the do it yourselfer.
  2. I did this when I first started using a brush and DE. It's ok until you find something else. It's a real pain in the balls and doesn't look good on the counter.
  3. Thanks for the link. I've always loved that website. What I really like were the pro-wetshave comments that went with the project. This included references back to B&B. Perhaps we'll gain some converts.

  4. I did my own kind of variation on this stand. I used the bent coathanger concept, and coated it with spray plasti-dip so it was rubberized. Then I added a 50 cent wooden block from the local Hobby Store for the base. After some stain and a coat or two of clear polyurethane, I came out with a nice functional stand. I've been using it for about a week, and it's doing nicely.
  5. Nice addition of the wood base, great idea.

  6. The wooden base is a nice touch. Improves the look greatly :thumbup1:
  7. Thanks for the kind words! This was a rare occasion where one of my projects was a success! :001_smile

    You high rollers get me.
    Here's my 1/10 penny version.

    My first DE razor kit just arrived! Was travelling for work but snuck into the office after house to pick up the kit for the weekend and after wrecking two coat hangers - this is my third attempt!
  10. Looks better upside down. Put the base in the medicine cabinet and close the door.
  11. I added the hangers to a shelf I found at a flea market $20130719_125919.jpg
  12. If it's nothing to look at, then why am I looking at it?

    Hmmm. Very creative and ingenious.

    The big problem I have with almost all of these stands is that they necessitate hangine a damp brush near a loaded safety razor. I believe that is not good for the blade. It's a basic teaching in Shaving 101 to keep one's blades away from moisture to prevent mini corrosion of the cutting edges.
  13. Hey everyone. I'm new to the whole wet shave deal and since I'm still in college I am on a shoestring budget. I had originally made the same wire hanger stand (no brush yet, but that is going to be my next purchase after some nice shave cream) but I decided I was going to need something a little more. Using some salvage wood and some cheap parts from Lowes (>$1.50) I made a nice urban stand. I'm thinking of making an instructable for it, but I wanted to share it with the good people of B&B before that. Let me know what you think.
