We got back from camping at Bodega Bay Dunes and I was not happy with the paper towel holder. I’d threatened to replace it before but finally followed through this time. Just used the existing plastic marvel to get general dimensions and modified the holder accordingly. Took part of an afternoon from start to finish. Red oak blends in well with what was there to begin with too.

Good job Jack. Is that in a camper? I need to make a little shelf unit for my camper kitchen counter.
