A Shaving Stand Made With A 3D Printer

Like many of those already on Sharpologist, I've made a regular routine of wet shaving to maintain my appearance. I first took the plunge into this wide, wonderful world last year when I bought a vintage 1930's Schick injector razor. I've since upgraded to a Parker 22R DE razor, and, although my setup is quite humble compared with many others that I've seen (shoutout to /r/wicked_edge!), I find that my shaving experience is still profoundly greater than it ever was while using cartridge razors.  I decided to use a 3D printer to create a shaving stand for my shaving gear....

Autumn wedding flowers

Autumn is such a great time of year! It gives us all a sense of relief and a moment to catch our breath after the busy, warm summer months. What a perfect season to have a wedding! Not only does this fresh season bring a crisp breeze, but it magically changes the colors of our world from the bright pastel shades to the rich, deep and subtle warm hues of fall. With the gradual change of colors and a vast variety of color palettes, brides have so many options for their custom wedding flowers.

Best local getaway spot?
This week, OnMIlwaukee.com polled the Social Circle for their favorite Wisconsin vacation spot. A lot of shout outs for Door County and other lush "Up North" places. And one vote for the Sybaris.

Stargazing at Yerkes
Why not check out Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, near Lake Geneva? Situated 190 feet above Geneva Lake, the observatory is a fascinating place in an architecturally interesting building and offers great views of the surrounding area.

Dinner Lab Milwaukee
Milwaukee's first Dinner Lab -- held in an old warehouse in Bay View -- left me with a feeling of intrigue.

Railway Exchange Building
Back in the 1970s, Usinger's used to sell a poster with a cartoon aerial view of Milwaukee. Across the bottom was the Milwaukee Convention and Visitors Bureau's trademarked phrase, "Old World Charm, New World Vigor." I don't remember if the Railway Exchange building, 229 E. Wisconsin Ave., was depicted on the poster, but it should've been. Designed by the daddy of the skyscraper William LeBaron Jenney, the red terra cotta-clad building has long been a fixture in Downtown Milwaukee, serving as a link to turn of the 20th century Brew City.
