I go through a lot of shop towels.
A nice Dispenser was in order.
There was one hiding in this ratty old piece of pallet wood 4X and just needed coaxing out.
The top was painted with Cypress Green Milk Paint, and the frame was finished with Boiled Linseed Oil and Wax.
I’ve included some how-to’s below in case you’d like one.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Then, just assemble it, fill it and use it in good health.
If you have any questions, just send me a message.

Thanks again,

-- Eric, central Florida

Eric, your tutorial, your slide show and of course your project are fantastic, all this flanked with your unique creativity.

Thanks for sharing it all. (PS: I didn’t know you could get milk paint in a can !)

Cute, and practical. Shop doodad projects are always fun.

Getting a lot more daylight, and the temperatures are hovering around freezing. It will be nice to see Spring, but I fear we will have snowstorm or two before that happens. Low snow fall here this winter, but we don’t need it for water like California does. Anchorage, with half the population of Alaska in it, has a reservoir in the foot hills (you would call them mountains) that will literally take a hundred years to empty, even if no water was added ever again. Of course, the darn thing is always full.

Have a good one….......
