I just completed my first attempt at building a shave stand from scratch. The inspiration for this stand came a couple of months ago when a friend of mine, and fellow wet shaver, received a similar shave stand as a birthday gift from his wife. Finally finding some free time I set to work a couple of weeks ago.
After a few false starts and problems with my jig, the final product is finished using dark maple. A simple design that took much more time than I had expected. But, in my opinion, looks great, and is ready to take hold of my latest brush and razor coming for Christmas.
I purchase more lumber than needed and will be making a few more of these of the next couple of weeks. If anyone is interested check back in a couple of weeks.
