Seems to have had some interest lately, so I'll throw mine in.
Back when I was doing a lot of black powder stuff, hitting rendezvous when possible, I did a lot of research, both for general data and to find patterns for ironwork I could make. Among the stuff I found pictures or drawings of were personal gear that included shaving stuff. So, decided to give it a try. Here's the shaving case I made, copied from that drawing
Hinge pin for the lid at the bottom, and used a brass tack to lock it closed. I took a piece of walnut and cut the top off so I had a thick body piece, and a thin top. Cut the top at a suitable angle and bevel. Then used a router to hollow out the body. Glued the handle end of the top back on, then used a coping saw to cut it to shape, then sanded a nice bevel all the way around. Put the door on, drilled the base for the pivot and used that to hold it in place while sanded it all smooth, then oiled it. The pivot is held in place with a small brass tack in the end. Here it is open
I used to have a flat horsehair brush for the soap, and a small piece to carry, but they've disappeared; I'll have to find or make another brush.
On the back, the notes in the book said there was a piece of leather glued on for stropping the razor, so did that
and worked some fine buffing compound into it.
The razor I picked up at a flea market, not having tried my had at those blades yet
It's marked 'Carl Monkhouse Illicottville N.Y.' on the tang, and yes, I did shave with it for quite a while. Once you get the hang of it, works quite well.
Y'know, I think I've still got grandpa's mug and brush around here somewhere...
