A Shaving Set

The razor and brush are turned from a stick of Bocote that I have had for several years. Sanded to 400, 8 coats of CA/BLO and finished on the Beale wheels. All comments are welcome.

Looks great. I've been thinking about making a razor handle but just haven't gotten there yet.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Very cool. Bocote looks so good on these types of projects. That finish is gleaming too, very nice.

Very nice, love the look of Bocote for handles and pens!

Question, where did you get the razor parts? I haven't seen anything like that at my usual suppliers, but maybe haven't looked close enough either.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

Dick,
very nice. I like the bocote for the contrasting grain. I made a brush out of tulip wood. But for the razor I went on ebay and found a gillette safety razor like I had when I was a kid. It was made in 1956 and looked like new. Blades are readily available and even some are made here, and a darn sight cheaper than the disposable multi blades.

Glidden,
Woodcraft has the razor handle kits and brushes (knots). Also check with the goldennib.com for parts also, including the good shaving soaps from Italy.

I buy my razor kits and knots from www.arizonasilhouette.com. Great prices and service.

Beautiful pieces!

...and why are the old-timers calling you names?

People usually wait until they know me, to call me dick...

Welcome!

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
