Step 1: Introduction and Justification
Step 2: You Will Need:
- A good lengthof 1/2" PVC pipe; get the sturdy stuff (schedule 40 is good). I just bought a 10' length for $1.74 and used less than half.
- Four 1/2" elbows
- One 1x1/2" 90-degree elbow
- Three 1/2" Tees
- Two 1/" caps
B) Your shaving junk
Step 3: Measure your junk!
Cut one length of PVC to be the "back rail" of the stand (the part that sits on the counter). You're going to take the back rail, like Gaul, and divide it into three parts--and insert a few Tees into it. So you will actually want this back rail to be a bit shorter than your measurement. Luckily, since PVC is forgiving stuff and easy to trim, I'd just cut it full-length and trim to fit later.
Cut two more pieces to be the side rails.
Cut two MORE pieces to be the uprights--I made them the same length as the side rails, and it worked pretty well.
Finally, cut two short pieces, about 1-1.5 inches or so (these will be the horizontal supports).
