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.

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.

Stuart Rojstaczer
Third time's the charm, at least for Milwaukee-born and bred author Stuart Rojstaczer. Rojstaczer's third stab at writing a novel has been his most successful and the publication of "The Mathematician's Shiva," out now in paperback from Penguin, brings the Brew City boy home for a reading and signing next week at Boswell Books.

Westown edition
A few weeks ago, I looked at missed opportunities, ugly spaces and other problem spots east of the river. This time, I go west.

The Modjeska Theater
Once upon a time, The Modjeska Theater, 1134 W. Mitchell St., was a neighborhood movie palace, the big daddy of Mitchell Street, the second busiest thoroughfare in Milwaukee after Wisconsin Avenue. Now, after four dormant years, and decades after it ended its run as a movie house, Mitchell Street Development Opportunity Corporation is cleaning it up, with an eye toward re-opening in spring with a mix of movies, concerts and other live performances.
