Introduction: Laser Cut Shave Stand
Here is a quick and easy laser cut shave stand to hold a single brush and razor. The brush holder has a diameter of 1.2", and the razor holder has a diameter of 0.5". I made this bad boy because it combined my two favorite hobbies: wetshaving and digital fabrication. Originally created for the members of Reddit's illustrious wetshaving community, /r/wicked_edge.
