    I made this seven razor stand from a piece of oak and finished it with polycrylic finish. I put felt pads on the bottom of the stand to keep the wood from contacting the counter. It is made with 3 inch handles in mind. The holes are big enough to accommodate the big end Schicks.

    Nice work, Jim. One suggestion tho.... how about a bit of a conical divot in the bottom piece right under the hole so that the longer handles don't splay outside the rack. Having the handles fall out like that would drive me a little (more?) nutty.

    I thought about that, but I didn't have a conical divot tool. HA! I will figure something out.

    How about a wide drill bit and just don't drill all the way through?
    Or, search Amazon for a conical divot thing-a-ma-jigger. If they don't have one, try eBay. ;)

    Yeah, that is what I was thinking. I think I may have a 1/2 inch twist drill. I may even have a 3/4 inch one.

    OK, guys. I did it. I found my 1/2 inch twist drill, and I made divots in the bottom. I sanded and put a coat of polycrylic on it. I will get some pictures later so you can see that it is new and improved. Check back later.

    I tried that exact search.

    It broke the internet.

    Yeah, it didn't work for me either. So, I tried conical divot thing-a-ma-jigro

    That didn't work either...

    Not bad for not having a conical divot maker on hand. ;)

    Here's one I made for straights awhile back. I should have made four more :whacky011:

    And it looks like you have your own conical divot cutter thingy. :)

    They're made specifically for razor handles. Razor handle conical divot cutting bits. They make two kinds: Safety Razor handle conical divot cutting bit and Straight Razor handle conical divot cutting bits. I think I special ordered mine from Harbor Freight.

    I'm betting that tightwad, Jim used a drill bit :rolleyes005:

    Looks great, I think the technical term your looking for is do-hiky.

    Wonderful job Jim!! I keep having a dream about an adjustable plastic (durable) razor stand.
