    I was at Lowe's buying some plumbing hardware (dratted pop-up drain--but now fixed) and SWMBO spied some cabinets on close-out. I had just looked at a shelf or two for the purpose. Well I got a good deal and within an hour it was hung on my wall just outside the bathroom (over my chest-of-drawers).

    I still need to install a couple of rails to hang my DE razors on, but that will have to be later this week.

    Thought I'd share. I was asked, "Just how much more shaving stuff do you intend to buy?" I didn't answer. I can't reasonably be asked to guess! However, when I put my stuff in it she laughed and told me she couldn't believe had already filled it. Little does she know...

    You haven't told her about winning the newbie PIF yet, have you?

    I did after I put the cabinet up. She rolled her eyes and said you're going to have to PIF to others now too. I will. I will. But I still need to get just a little more... :)

    Nice job Father...I see a strop, I didn't realize that you had purchased a straight.

    The cabinet looks excellent.

    Have two old vintage straights and a new Dovo Forestal. I am slowly trying trying to learn the skills for them but am not hurrying myself. I have a long way to go but haven't nicked myself in a while with them, so it's coming along. My favorite is still my Merkur 1904 with sharp blades.

    Like you I love the Merkur 1904 loaded with a sharp blade (Feathers, Gillette Blacks, SuperMax Super Plats, etc). I would much rather load a sharp blade into a mild razor, such as the 1904 or Tech, than a dull blade into an overly aggressive razor.

    Very nice setup Padre! Nicely organized and full, but after all it's not that "BIG" of a cabinet "lol".

    I was just trying to make some room for a few new items. You're right it's not big, so I'll have to get creative. :)

    Very nice. I like your ample supply of Bigelow. Is that vintage English Leather in the middle row center?

    Yep. My dad used English Leather all of the time. Sometimes I just smell a little and it brings him back a little. I miss Daddy terribly, he was my hero and best friend. He died 6 years ago, aged 69, to colon cancer. Gents, get your colonoscopy!
