    Hey guys, post pictures of your collections (displays) or threads with examples of how to do a decent display. I’m stuck with shoving them in the towel closet for now and need ideas.

    Here is my awesomely messy display / storage

    Thanks!

    Im not sure I get what your saying.
    Search engine?
    Forum?
    Razors? None of the newest purchases but all the older ones I used allot. Mainly the Gillette non adjustable as my main and a Gem.
    In the picture all the stuff on the left I used, the right is all the new (old) stuff to be used

    Do you use the razors on a regular basis?

    Right now no, year old beard still growing. When I do start back (soon hopefully) maybe 25% of the razors will be in the rotation and others like the Gem's (real old) will be from time to time.
    Im a visual person though, I like to see my stuff lol. I thought about the Gillette display cases I see on ebay all the time, or making a shelf for the bathroom for the soaps, splashes, sprays and razors.
    Not sure though.

    I heard you. I'm on beard week 3 and packing to move to Florida, so all I have out is a cheap cart to keep the lower neck clean, and a can o'foam. Everything else is stowed.

    I don't know why, but I thought you were sporting a full beard and haven't shaved in over a year. My bad.

    You are correct, I am. I stopped shaving a year ago but I think its time... or close... Its more work keeping a beard in some sort of order than shaving.. this thing has a mind of its own, wax and oils dont help lol. The one good thing is people are nicer to me. I think they think Im homeless and could snap at any second, so I get the door held open for me and everyone says hi with a smile... Strange, I will miss that.

    My “den is an oversized mirror/medicine cabinet. My razors hang on belt holders that I bought at Home Depot for about $8 each in the closet section.

    Randy, I don't think I've seen a picture of your den before. I just added that to the list of "Show my wife to make my hoard seem not so bad" pictures. Much more organized than mine.

    Oh wow, that looks like a store :) Amazing stock! Belt holder at Home Depot, perfect.

    I see 1 or 65 things I would like :)

    I’m here to help, Adam. By the way, disorganization can be your friend if it disguises how much you’ve accumulated. Oh, and I used your pictures of the aftermath of fingershaver 1.0 when first starting to shave with a straight to justify that the cuts on my face weren’t that bad. My wife didn’t say it, but I’m pretty sure her takeaway was that my online shave buddies were idiots just like me. My guess is your wife will respond similarly.

    I know. I have issues... If it helps, a lot of the silver ones up top are Stirling samples (1 oz), not full tubs.

    Like I said, issues.

    Nice! Im liking the shallow shelves on both. It looks like the perfect depth for soaps and razors laying down in the cases too. The towel closet shelves are too deep, so it gets piled up to bad. I may hit home depot and see what they have for bath cabinets.

    Maybe something like this. I'm thinking maybe the wood door one, then I can put the doors in my printer and print something saving related on it in one big mural. The glass one would be cool too, more of a display I guess.
    Oh if I can find a plain glass cabinet I could etch the vintage logo into it like the Barbicide glass......
