Following close on the heels of my shaving brush, I decided to make a stand for my razor and two brushes. There are various stands available on the market but, being a woodworker, I just had to do things my own way. Besides, most commercial stands hold only one brush, and I like to use two in rotation to allow each to dry completely, reducing the risk of mildew.
The stand is made from ebony and mahogany mostly left over from other projects. I DID have to purchase some ebony for the brackets, but this left plenty for future needs. I had no plans beyond the rough preliminary sketch shown in picture #3 above. Everything was sized and refined on the fly as required. The finish is Sealcell shellac applied with an airbrush. I chose shellac because it is easy to renew in the event of water damage.
