I may have asked this before, but I'm not sure. I have this custom acrylic stand from Cutting Edge, who unfortunately went out of business. I have lost one of these to breakage, and I'm afraid of losing this one, which I really like, without a backup. Does anyone know of an acrylic artisan who might be able to make a stand like this for me?

Substitute LEXAN for Polycarbonate on a web search. Same stuff and used in different thicknesses from leather substitute tool scabbards to aquariums. I found a wealth of links, forums and youtube resources.

I would ask that brush maker on Etsy that uses a 3D Printer. A band saw would do the job too, but I think a 3D Printer would be pretty cool to make it with.

We could make that in the shop where I work, engraving and all. That's actually acrylic (plexiglass or lucite, if you prefer). We make laser-cut and engraved stuff like that all the time. We've never made a brush stand, but it would not be hard to do. I would just need more pictures and dimensions from every side.

Thanks, Jeff. I'll PM you some pictures and measurements.

That's a nice stand, John. I'd like to see more pix of various angles. One of the coolest things you've ever shown ;-)

Here are a few more images of it.  I also had one that held two brushes and two razors, which I sold, I believe to daveinsweethome.  It's really too bad that Cutting Edge is no longer in business.

I went to high school with a guy whose father owned an acrylic display case company. I Googled the name and it looks like they sold the business to another company in 2007.

Here's a link.

I don't know if you have come across them or tried to ask them. Or if they'd even do it for you. It seems like a fairly small project but I don't really know anything about the material or process involved.

It's been 20 years at least since I saw the guy I knew and around 10 years since his father owned the business. I remember at the time they could make just about anything. Mostly display cases for diecast cars and countertop displays for small businesses. He loved fishing and had a giant display case for his fishing lures. Ahh memory lane...

Anyway I hope you find someone who will take your project on. You could get a piece and tinker with making one maybe?
Shave yourself.

Thanks for the suggestion, Todd. I have sent them an inquiry.

The single-brush one in the images above sits on my bathroom counter and holds the brush of the day. I remembered that I have another Cutting Edge stand - this one for 3 brushes and two razors, and also with my initials - which I keep in a cupboard for drying brushes after use. It is pictured below.
