I haven’t posted a new project in a while, but I really liked this set of three towel holders that I designed and cut last week. They are simple, but both functional and attractive.

My pieces were cut from 1/2 inch curly/bird’s eye maple. I think the figured wood looks great with the simpler design.

The towel holder patterns include three types of ‘arms’ so that you can have them shallow for smaller towels, deeper for larger or thicker towels, and there is a slotted set of arms for paper towels, where you want to remove the dowel regularly to re-load the towels.

I have the patterns available now on my site and I decided to include a bonus 8’’ x 10” pattern for a matching plaque with each.

I haven’t done wildlife in a while, and I hope you enjoy seeing these. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look.

Rather enchanting! They would be great for a hunting or fishing cabin.

Thank you! I had a moose one and it was used just for that. That is what encouraged me to crate these. I am glad you like them. :)

Sheila,

Practical and beautiful, too! That’s what I like. Your choice of wood really makes them outstanding.

Those are works of art by themselves, and they hold towels too..
