My son in law is REALLY into old school shaving. My daughter asked me to make him a shelf to store his razors, brushes, and soaps.

That’s a great looking shaving shelf! It’s got all the equipment organized and close at hand—I’m sure it’ll add a lot to his enjoyment!

Great shaving shelf. I will use it for inspiration for a build.

Awesome … what a great project! I haven’t seen a styptic pencil in years. I have to stop making spills and build one of these. Again, great job, Dan!

Great looking build. I should really do something like this for my gear but I have way too much stuff to do on a shelf.

Very nice! I love my safety razor and badger brush! I only have one brush and one razor though, so hadn’t considered making a shelf for them yet.

A little off topic, but I can’t imagine going back to the cartridge razors. The old safety razors just feel so much higher quality, and I get a better a shave off of them. Plus the blades are 20 to 50¢ each, and last me for a week each, so they’re super cheap compared to most cartridges.

Jeremymcon- I agree, he has converted me to a safety razor as well.

Thank you!
