    My main goal in shaving is to have a standard number of razors/brushes (working on the soaps but it doesn't seem to go well :D ) so I made a fixed number brush/razor stand.

    The wood used is olive tree wood because... I just love the waves this wood has.
    The main concept is to hold 6 brushes + 2 razors + have room for a straight or two on top.
    Then, at the bottom, plenty of room for alum block, blades, a spatula for my creams etc.

    Everything is in place and today, when I go home, I will start painting and finishing it.
    Tomorrow, if everything go right, more photos will be uploaded. :)

    Thank you gents!
    Humidity was too high and painting/drying takes more time than expected...
    So, till it dries (my main free time is during weekends), I can give some more clues (and photos).
    To get solid planks with the same grain is really difficult, so I had to shred 4 logs (I went to a real woodworker for this :) ).
    Logs stored for 3 years, but still hiding "surprises" in them.
    They were cut at 1.3cm so as to go to 1cm with the sander (No 180, 320 and 700).
    Then I applied 2 passes of colorless water preservative and then 3 passes of colorless mat water varnish.

    Photos with the brushes on them, when the odor of the paint will be gone completely, since I don't want my brushes to smell varnish. :)
