Introduction: NO LASER SHAVING STAND
Yes, I wet shave
Yes, I need somewhere to store my gear
Yes, I love the laser cut shaving stands
No, I don't have a laser cutter
Does that mean I can't have a nice stand?
NOPE, I do have a BANDSAW however
Step 1: DESIGN:
Sketch roughly what you want, might be something you've seen on here or the net or your own idea
Draw it out on paper, measure the width of your brush and razor handle for the spaces in the holder.
Try to be neat as this is going to be your first template.
Step 2: TRANSFER & CUT:
Turn your paper over on top of some cereal box card and go over the lines so it transfers the picture underneath.
Once completely transferred,
CAREFULLY use a craft knife and ruler to cut out your design template from the card.
Step 3: TRANSFER TO POLY:
After the template is cut out in card, measure again against your brush handle and razor handle to ensure they fit.
Put the templates on your material that you're going to use, I used a piece of 12mm polycarbonate which I had lying around, and drew around them.
Step 4: BANDSAW:
I used my bandsaw, but I could have used a fretsaw or hand saw to cut the bits out.
I shouldn't have to say be careful if you own one, but be careful just the same.
Take your time and go slow, there's no rush.
Once you've cut the pieces out, just go over the edges with a bit of fine sandpaper to neaten them off.
Step 5: CHECK:
Dry fit the pieces together to ensure all is well.
Ensure gaps are wide enough for what you want to hold.
Step 6: ASSEMBLY:
I used Superglue for plastics and put just a dab on the bits before joining them together, hold them for a few seconds to bond them.
Less glue is best, you don't want it oozing out everywhere on your finished piece.
Step 7: ADMIRE:
Put your razor and brush in and sit back and admire.
I've made that and I didn't need a laser cutter
Thanks for looking.
We have a be nice policy.
