    Default Razor storage box

    I had this old box laying around. So I decided to convert it to my razor box. I made a few holders for it. It has 2 levels and can hold 18 razors.

    Now I need to fill it up.

    Nice job! That thing looks like it was just begging to be made into a razor box. You did well

    Is that wood or some kind of foam separating the razors from each other?

    Excellent work!

    Great job. Although it looks lonely to me...like it needs a "brush holder" friend.
    Keep it safe and Cheers,

    It is a 40lb. Foam board. I am thinking of putting a moisture absorbent fabric on it. Thoughts?

    My first thought is to get some desiccant packs from somewhere and hide them in the box. Possibly hollow out a couple spots in the dividers.
    https://www.amazon.com/Silica-Gel-De.../dp/B003DKQB02

    They come in various sizes, so picking the right size and quantity will help with hiding options. How often to change them, I have no idea...

    I'm greatly hesitant about an absorbent fabric. You wouldn't want the fabric to hold the moisture then increase the humidity in the box as it is closed.

    Thanks for the tip. I have some desiccant packs. Hollowing out the holders is a great idea.

    I'm a newbie, however you probably noticed in some restaurants they put rice in the salt shaker to prevent the salt from clogging up the shaker, I've taken a a gallon ziplock bag and 1/2 cup of rice and store my knife inside the bag. Similar should work for your box (excluding the ziplock bag. My two cents.

    Happy shaving,
    Pierre

    I use a humidor with a desecant pack and it works great.

    Be sure to let your razor air dry for several hours before returning it to your very nice box. Good job
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.
