A quick and easy shaving kit I made for my father for his birthday a while ago. Sanded to about 400/600 grit, and finished with a coat of Zinsers orange shellac.

@cannondale, Here’s the kit I used, but I also got the stabilized black ash burl blanks. Here are the links.

I just worked on one of these kits today… ...I was able to turn the base and the razor, but ran out of time with the brush. I’ll be getting to that in the morning.

I like the set that you have done. That ash burl is very nice looking. How has this kit held up? I decided to go with acrylic ILO wood due to the fact that they would be in a wet environment and likely come in heavy contact with water.

Thanks for sharing. Nice work.
