    Default Brush shelf/holder

    Hello All,

    Not exactly sure where to post this but it relates to brushes.

    I live in NYC with a rather small bathroom, and need a space to store around 8 shave brushes. I have a small area (4" wide and 28" high) to work with. Would any of you know anyone who might be able to design this sort of small shelf/brush holder? I am stuck here until next summer without a workshop...

    best,
    jeff

    Do you have a design you would like to see built? There are several wood workers on the forum so it is possible. If you waited for me to build it you might wait until at next summer. I am curious though.

    Thanks RezDog. Something very simple for sure. Either small shelves or "hooks". I would love to get this done soon. Is there a list of woodworkers somewhere?

    many thanks!
    Jeff

    There is no list that I am aware of, but many people have posted woodworking projects. Perhaps some line drawings of what you are thinking about may pull one of the from the shadows.

    Sketches and pics help visualize what you are looking for.
    As Rez said, there are a few of us woodchuckers on here that have made storage racks.
    Real simply, two shelves of four evenly spaced keyhole cut outs would accommodate eight brushes. Your brushes all around the same girth?
    What about blades and soaps etc?
    Do you want it it dark or light wood, or acrylic/lexan.
    Lots of options and Idea's float around on this forum. Folks on here are most helpful.
    Good luck.

    4" wide x 28" high sounds more like the side of the medicine cabinet. Pics would help, don't worry if your maid is on vacation, we'll poke fun at you anyway, lol.

    That is a fairly small are to work with especially the width but doable. You would have to do 2 brushes beside each other and it would be tight, then 4 shelves down and I would suggest a couple of bendable, metal hooks (see pics) under the bottom shelve to hang brushes by their handle for drying. Once the brushes are dry they could rest on their handles on the shelves. I have some 30 year old Cedar planned down to 1/2" thick and cut 2" wide that might work...........

    I like that folks are talking plans and advice.

    of course if this moves to a final stage you all know to take it to a PM.
