And there you have it, the final $5 shaving stand. It's not the most beautiful thing in the world, but it does work just fine. If you have very hard...
Corral your shaving paraphernalia and keep your brush and razor dry with this manliest--and cheapest--of shaving stands.
Step 1: Introduction and Justification
I had recently begun shaving with a double-edged safety razor and brush, and felt the need to corral my rapidly expanding pile of shaving junk as well as providing my razor and brush a safe place to dry. "Real" shaving stands cost from about $10 to upwards of $100, but I felt I could do better--and enjoy the fun of a project as well. And what better material to use for a manly shaving set than that most manly of materials, PVC pipe? (in truth, PVC is non-gendered, of course; it was just funny in this context).
