    Default Wall-mount brush, bowl, and 7 day razor stand

    Having a small apartment always leads to the same issue with material possessions: not enough storage space. After several browses around the board and on the inter-webs I came to the same realization each time. There is simply nothing available on the market to fill my niche. Not only did I want compact storage, I also wanted something unique and good looking. After several ideas I came up with a design that I thought might work. It holds seven razors, a shaving brush, and a soap bowl in a fairly compact unit. It has been designed to 'cup' the brush and bowl so as not to be knocked out with gentle nudges.The stand is made of Douglas Fir and has been coated with several coats of Varathane.I have several more mounting ideas such as wrought iron or stainless mounting brackets to hold the stand off the wall. It could even be adapted for a counter top. I may even try a hardwood, such as western maple, or white ash.Please, tell me what you think.Name:  IMG_20120318_124906.jpg

    Looks great, and very functional.. now if it just held gobs of cream, aftershave etc you would be set Do you use that telescoping mirror for shaving much? I have been thinking of adding one of those

    Thanks! Hmm, I'll consider those ideas for my next design. Or perhaps a smaller similar design stand which I could mount above or below the existing one.

    Yes, I do use the telescoping mirror - no more leaning over the sink. Another nice advantage is that one side magnifies which can be helpful.

    Nice work. I like it. I am in the same boat you are living in an apartment. I added two shelves to my bathroom so I wouldn't have to fight for counter space

    Wow -- that's a good looking stand!!! The joints look fantastic. Do you have any plans you would be willing to share? Would love to get one of those.
