This is a spare TP holder to be used in the guest bathroom so they can find the TP when to roll runs out. It was made from scraps laying around the shop. The handle is a piece of the plastic stick used to hold the flags the gas company uses to mark your lawn.

I really like this. Clever Idea. In the right bathroom design, I think this could be used as your main paper dispenser…..not just a back-up.

What a clever idea!! I got to make one of these so I don’t just leave a spare roll on top of the tank cover. Thanks for sharing.

That is great. I think your idea will be “borrowed” by many of us here.
Thanks for sharing Jim!

Neat idea. You even got a good looking grain pattern from your “scraps”.
Why just use it for a spare? It looks like it could be the main tp holder.
